1959 Cadillac 'ECTO-1' to return in upcoming 'Ghostbusters: Afterlife' film
And it's actually still based on the 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor Futura
Excellent news if you're a hardcore Ghostbusters fan because the mythological Ecto-1 is officially making a comeback in the upcoming action-packed 'Ghostbusters: Afterlife'. Based on a 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor Futura, the Octo-1 will be included in the upcoming Hollywood flick, technically the fourth movie overall in the franchise, is actually a direct sequel to the original 1989 film, set thirty years after the events of the first movie.
In the trailer, the abandoned Ecto-1 is discovered in barn and the group decides to use it simply because it's the only car in the barn with an engine in it. They take if for a ride in a cornfield and discover some of Ecto-1's gadgets including a revolving gunner seat.
Directed by Jason Reitman, it stars Paul Rudd, Mckenna Grace, Carrie Coon, and Finn Wolfhard, as well as Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Ernie Hudson who will all reprise their roles from the first and second Ghostbusters movies.
Like most films in the last two years, 'Ghostbusters: Afterlife' has been delayed several times - it was originally supposed to hit the screens in July 2020, but the wait is nearly over and Sony Pictures shared the official trailer (on Ghostbusters' YouTube Channel) ahead of the theatrical release on November 11, this year.
