One of our inside jokes here at Bloody Disgusting is Ernie Hudson’s involvement in the potential third Ghostbusters film. Hudson, who has resorted to doing a fairly large amount of autograph conventions, would probably give just about anything to return to the franchise that gave his career major life. So why do I find it unsettling that he hasn’t even been contacted about returning? Will the “fourth wheel” Ghost Buster once again be the last to join?
According to THR, Hudson, who played Winston Zeddmore in the Ghostbusters films, says he hasn’t been approached about a role in the film.
“I haven’t seen anybody with any money, but I hear it’s happening, and I’ve been reading all the press stuff, and the fans have been telling me that it’s on,” Hudson said.
Ivan Reitman, who directed and produced the first two movies, returns with Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis, and even Sigourney Weaver.
Recent reports indicate that the project is close to its demise as star Bill Murray refuses to read the latest draft.
