It looks like the Ghostbusters reboot has kicked off production in Boston.

The pictures show the old Everett High School all done up as “Bronx Kuyper Middle School,’’ draped with giant banners that read “Higgins Science Institute.’’ Sadly, there was no Ecto-1, but the school does look especially spooky.

Star Kristen Wiig was also spotted on set alongside director Paul Feig.

The film seems to be going by the codename “Flapjack,’’ according to a flyer handed out to residents. Considering it lists pretty much everyone starring in the movie, we’re pretty sure it’s for the Ghostbusters reboot.

Feig also sent out a recent tweet celebrating the start of filming in Boston.

Production was set to begin on June 15, so don’t be surprised if you see some Ghostbusters around town.

The franchise’s first all-female installment will star Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones as well as Thor‘s Chris Hemsworth.

Ghostbusters hits theaters July 22, 2016.
