This past weekend has been a pretty eventful time for science fiction and fantasy fans and if you blinked you will have likely missed a few things.
One story that broke over the weekend is that Ernie Hudson, who was a regular in the original 1984 ‘Ghostbusters’ movie and its sequel is to make a brief appearance in the new femalecentric reboot.
This is pretty big news in so many ways, but mostly because early on Hudson was seemingly the only original cast member that was initially against the idea of an all female ‘Ghostbusters’ movie.
Later though when the cast was announced the actor told Hollywood Reporter that Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon are “Four fiercely funny, foxy, females busting ghosts … phenomenal!,”
Hudson was spotted on the set of the film during its final day of shooting, which was Saturday 19 October. It is unknown if he is reprising his Winston Zeddemore character or not. Sony, which is producing the film, declined to comment.
The Paul Feig-directed project will hit theaters on July 22, 2016 and also stars Chris Hemsworth.
