Who you gonna call? Your favorite Ghostbusters fan, so you can tell them that Ernie Hudson says all three surviving original Ghostbusters are all in for a new movie. Finally!
Before we move any further, you’ve got to check this teaser trailer out first:
After the teaser trailer dropped, The UK Daily Mail published an article including a video of Ernie Hudson going a little more into detail about the upcoming 2020 film, which is set to be directed by Jason Reitman, son of original director Ivan Reitman. He talked about continuing on despite the loss of Harold Ramis, who passed in 2014.
“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. But 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.”
According to Ernie Hudson, timing is just right for this to happen now. The series is approaching its 35th anniversary.
“Thirty five years, the fans for Ghostbusters are the most amazing fans, because this is not something that the studio really set up. This is something that the fans embraced.”
“I mean guys make their jumpsuits, and they turn their cars into Ectomobiles, and they tattoo us on their bodies, and I’m just overwhelmed and humbled by it. So 35th year and there’s talk of other possibilities happening, which I would love, but we’ll see. But it’s great to have been a part of that franchise.”
