Director Paul Feig is very excited about his currently filming all-female Ghostbusters movie, and so excited is he that we can now check out the new outfits and proton packs the girls will be wearing.
Feig revealed the images through Twitter, and you will notice that the outfits now come with knee high boots, shin guards (??), big black gloves, some stripes and the iconic Ghostbusters logo is back on the right arm. There don’t appear to be any elbow pads for these outfits though.
We also have the first look at the proton packs for the new film, which look kinda cool with their used look, don’t you think?

The Boston Herald recently dug up some plot details:
Wiig and McCarthy play a pair of unheralded authors who write a book positing that ghosts are real. Flash forward a few years and Wiig lands a prestigious teaching position at Columbia U. Which is pretty sweet, until her book resurfaces and she is laughed out of academia.
Wiig reunites with McCarthy and the other two proton pack-packing phantom wranglers, and she gets some sweet revenge when ghosts invade Manhattan and she and her team have to save the world.
Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones will star in the “Ghostbusters” reboot.
Ivan Reitman is producing.
It has been reported that the female Ghostbusters will be:
Erin Gabler is an academic on the tenure track at Columbia. Her former colleague and co-author is…
Abby Bergman, who’s more on the pop parapsychology side of things, and pursues ghosts for a living.
Jillian is Abby’s ghost hunting partner.
Patty is an MTA employee who comes across the main ghost.
Chris Hemsworth will be playing the male version of Annie Potts’ Janine Melnitz, secretary to the original band of ghostbusters. One source told Deadline that he will be the assistant to the band of ghostbusting gals “who nobody wants to work with.”
