Paul Feig has been busy filming the female-led Ghostbusters movie starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones. He tweeted an official cast photo this past Friday and the ladies look absolutely badass in their ghostbusting gear, posing in front of the Ecto-1.

Except for the orange stripes, the jumpsuits don’t look all that different from what the original Ghostbusters costumes looked like in the 1984 film.
Earlier this month, to help fans design their cosplay, Feig also tweeted images of the proton pack they’ll be using to fight ghosts. You can get a closer look below.

In the Ghostbusters remake, Wiig and McCarthy are said to play Erin Gilbert and Abby Bergman, a pair of authors who published a book claiming that ghosts are real. Years later, Wiig gets laughed out of a prestigious teaching position at Columbia University when the book resurfaces. She reunites with McCarthy and, along with McKinnon and Jones, they go on to save Manhattan from invading ghosts. McKinnon will play Jillian Holtzmann, Bergman’s new partner, and Leslie Jones will play Patty Tolan, a subway worker. Chris Hemsworth will also star as the Ghostbusters’ receptionist.
Ghostbusters will open in theaters on July 22, 2016.
