"There has been a lot of excitement recently about what is happening with the Ghostbusters franchise. As the producer of the new Ghostbusters film, I feel the need to clarify.

Like its predecessor, the new Ecto-1 is a vintage Cadillac. Somewhat unlike the original Ecto-1, however, the new Ectomobile is a hearse.

As he's done with previous leaks, Feig tweeted an image of the Ghostbusters reboot paraphernalia to stir up some intrigue about how he's resurrecting the classic 80s franchise.
