Paul Feig has revealed the first glimpse of the new uniforms for his upcoming Ghostbusters reboot, which will star an all-female cast.

Freaks And Geeks creator Feig took to his personal Twitter account to share an image of the four modern jumpsuits embellished with each cast member's name tag and the iconic Ghostbusters logo. This time, the costumes sport some orangey-red stripes across the middle of the suits, providing a slightly jazzier look than the plain beige suits donned by Bill Murray and Dan Ackroyd in the 1984 movie.

Confirmed information about the film has been revealed in its dribs and drabs since it was first announced the re-imagining would be happening way back in August 2014 but this is the first time we have actually seen anything from the upcoming movie.

In January, it was confirmed that Spy star Melissa McCarthy, Bridesmaids actress Kristen Wiig and Saturday Night Live regulars Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones would be stepping in as the ghoulie-catching crew. Earlier in June, we also learnt that Avengers: Age Of Ultron star Chris Hemsworth would feature as the paranormal investigators' "bimbo" assistant, Kevin.

The reboot has been given a release date and has been confirmed to be hitting cinemas in the US on 22 July 2016. No details have been made apparent yet as to when it will be reaching the UK.

While no official plot has been released, rumours have been circulating that Wiig and McCarthy's characters will be playing authors Erin Gabler and Abby Bergman respectively, who, after having written a book about all things ghost-related, go on to get normal, respected jobs.

Wiig's character is allegedly haunted by the duo's literary creation while in her prestigious job at Columbia University but when New York City becomes plagued with pesky spirits, Gabler must team up with her old pal and their two fellow ghost-herders to save the day.

Feig worked with McCarthy on Spy and it was a box-office success, making $144m (£92m) and receiving praise from critics. That means their collaboration on Ghostbusters has big shoes – or should we says big black-laced boots – to fill.

Elsewhere, while the Ghostbusters reboot seems to be full steam ahead in terms of production, a separately announced male-based remake, intended to be led by Magic Mike XXL star Channing Tatum and directed by the Russo brothers, appears to have been put on the back burner.

When asked about his version, talking to Screen Rant, Tatum said: "We're not doing that anymore. No I don't think so, I think it's too complicated. There's a lot of things going on with that brand and I just feel like it's over-saturated."
