New Water Pump In/ Now boiling over..

My water pump went out last weekend. (78,000 miles). I'm the third owner of this car but i'm pretty sure it was the original unit because the gaskets were stock.

Anyway I removed the old one and all the pieces of the impeller i could. Replaced the pump and put on a new belt. Topped of the coolant and ran the engine and topped off again.

On my shake down cruise the car is over heating. The coolant is boiling out. Temps hitting 200 +. My first thought is that the thermostat is stuck shut...

Any other thoughts before I order a new thermostat tomorrow?
