‘Ghostbusters 3’: Ernie Hudson confirms ‘Everybody is in’

Ernie Hudson, who played Winston Zeddemore in the 1980s classic Ghostbuster films, reportedly says that the “everybody is in” for the new sequel, simply titled Ghostbusters 3 for now, suggesting the original cast could return. 

New of the film dropped a few days again and speaking to Daily Mail, Hudson said this: “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.”

Hudson and co-star Dan Akroyd (who played Ray Stantz) have already expressed a willingness to return on social media.

The only one who hasn’t commented on it is Bill Murray, but Hudson’s comment has been interpreted by many media outlets to mean that even he’s willing to return under the right circumstances.

The only original star who can’t return is Harold Ramis, who passed away in 2014. Hudson had nothing but glowing praise for Ramis, who played Egon in the films but is confident the studio could still make it work.

The upcoming movie was written and is being directed by Jason Reitman, whose dad Ivan directed the first two hit movies. Rumors suggest the movie will feature two young kids – a boy and a girl – as the main focus of the story, or possibly a team of four teenagers (two boys, two girls).

Ghostbusters 3 is slated to hit theaters in 2020.
