Ernie Hudson, who played the original Winston Zeddemore in the ‘Ghostbusters’ films, was seen filming on the last day of shoot of the upcoming Sony reboot.
Although the role of Ernie Hudson in the Paul Feig reboot is still unknown, it appears that the actor will appear in Sony’s 2016 version of “Ghostbusters.”
Hudson was seen on the film’s set on the last day of the shooting on Saturday, September 19. Sony declined to give details of his involvement, but it’s an exciting revelation since co-original Ghostbuster stars Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd are also making a cameo in the movie.
In an interview with Britain’s Telegraph, Hudson seemed to say that he was against the idea of having all-female version of “Ghostbusters,” telling the publication: “If it has nothing to do with the other two movies, and it’s all female, then why are you calling it Ghostbusters? I love females. I hope that if they go that way at least they’ll be funny, and if they’re not funny at least hopefully it’ll be sexy. I love the idea of including women, I think that’s great. But all-female I think would be a bad idea. I don’t think the fans want to see that.”
Hudson later changed his tone after knowing that Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon would be in the line-up, telling The Hollywood Reporter: “Four fiercely funny, foxy, females busting ghosts … phenomenal!”
“Ghostbusters” will hit theaters on July 15, 2016.
