Paul Feig has given Ghostbusters fans the first look at the new uniforms from his upcoming all-female remake.

The director took to Twitter to share a picture of four khaki outfits awaiting some serious business on a clothes rail.

The uniforms are not too dissimilar to those from the 1984 original (think iconic Ghostbusters logos on the sleeves) but some daring orange lines have been added to the chest to bring them into 2016 with a bang.

Lead actresses Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon were not in the photo but were spotted shooting on set in Boston earlier this month.

Ghostbusters opens in July next year with none other than Thor's Chris Hemsworth in the role of Kevin the receptionist.

Wiig and McCarthy are reported to be playing "unherald authors who write a book positing that ghosts are real" and go by the names Erin Gilbert and Abby Bergman.

McKinnon stars as Bergman's new partner Jillian Holtzmann while Jones is NYC subway worked Patty Tolan who unexpectedly meets the movie's biggest supernatural threat.

Plans for an all-male Ghostbusters seem to have been derailed by Feig's much-hyped film. Potential lead star Channing Tatum said recently that "the thing's gotten messy" and is "nowhere near" production, presumably because there's only so much Ghostbusters cinema-goers want at one time.
