Ernie Hudson Still Has Mixed Feelings About Playing Winston in 'Ghostbusters'

"The sad part is the thing that I thought that Ghostbusters would do, which is really kickstart my career into high gear. It never really materialized. I’ve never been told that I’ve gotten a job because of Ghostbusters; I think there have been a few jobs that I’ve lost [because of it]. Since [the movie], I’ve been given and taken advantage of the opportunity to perform a myriad of challenging roles, so what am I complaining about?"

- Fourth Ghostbuster Ernie Hudson — who called the all-female Ghostbusters reboot a "bad idea" last month — explains how Winston went from a fleshed out main character to more of a [...]

'Ghostbusters' Is Getting a Theatrical Re-Release This Summer

Ghostbusters was released 30 years ago this weekend, and for the occasion, the movie is heading back to theaters. Entertainment Weekly reports that a restored and remastered version of the movie will hit 700 theaters nationwide on August 29th. There will also be a 30th/25th anniversary Blu-Ray release of both Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II on September 16th. There's also a new Ghostbusters official website made for the 30th anniversary that looks like it was made for the 20th anniversary. Ghostbusters was re-released theatrically super recently in 2011 in what appeared to have been an effort to bolster support for a third movie, which Dan Aykroyd is [...]

Ernie Hudson Hates the Idea of an All-Women 'Ghostbusters' Reboot (Unless It's Sexy)

"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."

- Fourth Ghostbuster Ernie Hudson gives his ridiculously sexist two cents on Paul Feig's in-the-works reboot in an interview with The Telegraph.

Ernie Hudson on Ghostbusters 3: "Bill has been the hold up"

Here's Ernie Hudson on the progress of the mythical Ghostbusters 3: Dan and Harold are working on the script. If it happens we will see but Bill has been the hold up. His definition of good is a little bit different than everybody elses. So we will see, I would love to see it happen. I know the fans have been asking for it…so hopefully.

His definition of good is a little bit different! I'll be honest, I'm going to trust the guy who's definition of good is Get Low, Broken Flowers, and Lost in Translation over pretty much everyone else involved with this project. I mean, no [...]

Here's the Trailer for the 'Ghostbusters' 30th Anniversary Re-Release

Last month it was announced that Ghostbusters would be getting a theatrical re-release on August 29th to celebrate the film's 30th anniversary, and Sony dropped the first trailer yesterday. The re-release will be followed by the Ghostbusters 30th anniversary edition and Ghostbusters II 25th anniversary edition Blu-ray set available on September 16th. Hopefully this re-release will recruit a whole new generation of Ghostbusters fans who can laugh at the film just as much as its very '80s special effects.
