Ready to feel old? The original Ghostbusters arrived in theaters 32 years ago. Now, in 2016, Columbia Picture’s has brought the film back for a reboot, featuring a cast of all women busters.
Autoweek received an invitation to check out what the female Ghostbusters would be rolling in to take care of the undead problem this time around, and it’s still a Cadillac.
“I love how in the original movie they had the old car from the ’50s,” Ghostbusters director Paul Feig told Autoweek in an exclusive interview.
“I like the idea that they don’t have any money,” Feig explained about the all-girl crew in the new film. “The Ghostbusters are kind of scrappy and pull something together and so I felt like, ‘What’s the era that we would pull from?”
And so, the film crew landed this 1982 Cadillac hearse to become the new Ecto-1.
“I just I like those mid-’80s Cadillacs.”
“The first time we saw that car I was just like, ‘That’s it.’ I just like those angles and I like that it was different than the original one.”
It certainly captures the essence of what we feel modern day Ghostbusters would be rolling in, while keeping a certain nostalgia around things. Plus, it’s only two years off the release date of the original film.
Ghostbusters opens this coming summer, and keep your eyes open for what this 1982 Cadillac is capable of.
