The Original Ghostbusters Cast Will Return for New Movie

Sony Pictures announced this week that Jason Reitman would follow in the footsteps of his father, Ivan Reitman, with a new Ghostbusters film involving the original surviving cast, which includes Dan Aykroyd (Stantz), Bill Murray (Venkman), and Ernie Hudson (Zeddemore). The latter has confirmed that all are on board; the script was penned by Aykroyd himself. Leslie Jones, who starred in 2016’s disastrous all-female reboot, has called the sequel "insulting" and "a dick move."

This year is the 35th anniversary of the original film, which Hudson admits is re-igniting old school fans. He said Murray and Aykroyd have much to offer still for fans. "I think we do. We've grown, we've learned and a lot of really new young talent that I'm sure they'd bring in to it. So it would be a lot of fun. I think it would only deepen. And we'll miss Harold." Hudson refused to go all out to bash the female reboot, but admitted it was not what fans hoped for.
