Who you gonna call? Ernie Hudson confirms Ghostbusters sequel

Ghostbusters is returning to the silver screen in a sequel that will follow-up the original two movies from the 80s. Ernie Hudson, who played Winston Zeddemore, says he hopes to bring audiences, old and new, a movie loyal to the original feeling that garnered the franchise its dedicated fanbase long ago.

It couldn’t be a better time for the plans to be revealed, with this year being the 35th anniversary of the original movie.

Dan Aykroyd, first dropped hints about a sequel in November. According to reports, director and producer of both original Ghostbusters, Ivan Reitman is on board for the movie, as well as his son Jason, who recently caused a stir among fans when he tweeted on Wednesday: “Everybody can relax, I found the car. #GB20.”

Hudson believes co-stars, Bill Murray and Aykroyd still have much to offer for fans. He said: “We've grown, we've learned and there’s a lot of really new young talent that I'm sure they'd bring in to it. So it would be a lot of fun. I think it would only deepen.”

Hudson, Aykroyd and Murray are the three remaining members of the original Ghostbuster crew. Their co-star, Harold Ramis passed away in 2014 but Hudson believes he will be there in spirit. He said: “We miss Harold, because Harold was really the glue that I think held everybody together.

“He was always my go-to point and anything that was a little bit weird, or whatever, Harold was the guy who would sort of say, "Ernie, just…" and explain the world to me.

“And I miss him, but his spirit is there. Ivan Reitman is there and everybody is in. Now whether the studio will do it, I'm the guy who sits by the phone and waits for the call. So if they call, I'll answer. If not, I've got other stuff that I'm doing.”
