Ernie Hudson was quite impressed with the cast of Paul Feig's Ghostbusters

02.24.2016

After what has seemed like a very long wait, our first real look at Paul Feig's GHOSTBUSTERS will arrive in a little under two weeks with the release of the films first trailer. Beyond a few images and quotes, we really don't know all that much about the film, but that hasn't stopped many GHOSTBUSTERS fans from questioning the films existence. Ernie Hudson, who played Winston Zeddemore in the original movies, spoke to People at the American Black Film Festival Awards recently and he seems to think that the film will be just as good as the original and singled out praise for the new group of Ghostbusters played by Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones.

They're extraordinarily funny and there's a great chemistry with them, I think it's going to be very good. The script I knew was good. I knew the special effects would be amazing. But I was really pleasantly surprised to see how the women kind of gelled together.

Ernie Hudson isn't the only familiar face returning for the new film, in addition to himself, Hudson said that Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, and Annie Potts all came back "to support the film." Although you shouldn't be expecting them to share any screen-time as Hudson says that their cameos "come in at quite different times" throughout the film. When so many films nowadays release teasers a year or more ahead of their release dates, it feels a little strange that the first teaser for GHOSTBUSTERS will arrive with less than five months to go before before its release. It's my hope that they're merely using that time to craft a great trailer in order to make our first impression of GHOSTBUSTERS a good one.

GHOSTBUSTERS is set for a July 15, 2016 release.

The big con?

What if it's all an elaborate ruse to keep the actual Ghostbusters 3 film that they've been working on a complete secret? That's why there hasn't been a trailer yet, and there haven't been very many set photos. The trailer will reveal that everything we've seen has been a joke and the true story focuses on the original Ghostbusters, with the new girls only having a brief cameo as some trainees. I can dream, right?

Ernie Hudson was just happy to have a job

Nothing against him, but he would be happy working with Roman Polanski, Bill Cosby and Bobby Brown and would probably say he was quite impressed with their "talents" as well.

Sure, the man's in the movie. Why would he say anything different? And I understand the skepticism and contempt. But it never ceases to baffle me how quickly news for this movie inspires some of the most venomous reactions. I mean just ugly! It's like this movie exists in some vacuum where nobody secretly gives a shit about doing a good job. Do you think everyone involved is trying to sabotage this movie and so got the "worst" cast they could find? And the "hackiest" director to make it? And

Do you think everyone involved is trying to sabotage this movie and so got the "worst" cast they could find? And the "hackiest" director to make it? And then paid the original cast enough to buy their own private islands so that they would show up to work and sleepwalk through cameos just so the most impressionable fans would shell out to see it? I mean, I suppose this is possible, but one thing I believe is these women, love 'em or hate 'em, probably had a good time together. When you're working with people in a loose, improv-friendly environment, it's easy to gel. Whether that translates to a good show or not is a different thing entirely.

I don't think anybody believes Sony SET OUT to make a s**t movie. We in the hater camp just believe they have terrible taste, and chose hack directors and a bad cast because "Bridesmades made money, that must mean these people are funny" even though they just aren't... McCarthy's schtick is well beyond played out, and SNL is the unfunniest piece of crap on TV today, in large part thanks to its awful cast. I don't think there is any way Sony would choose to make a bad movie on purpose.... but

See, I like Paul Feig's work. And as someone who has done improv (as did Wiig and McCarthy) I know what it looks like when people really start gelling. Teh script could be horrific. The effects might be undercooked. You might not like the cast. But the only reason to lambast Ernie Hudson's claim of watching the women on set is for a cheap joke about his Winston character (which has been made). The other reason is to remind us how butthurt you are that this movie exists. Just don't watch it.

Problems are…

-This film doesn't honor the original fans it in fact craps over them.
-Feig has done a couple of good films but is a once trick pony pushing 'female empowerment' in EVERY film he does.
-They've turned G.B into a PC/politicised agenda film by allowing Feig to unleash his 'female empowerment' upon it.
-It reeks of being a subtle remake/reboot rather than a passing on of the legacy that it should have been.
-They're making another version with an all male crew which just

-They're making another version with an all male crew which just proves they know they've already screwed up.
-If they could get the OG cast back for cameo's getting them back for a passing of the baton should have been no issue.
-It will probably do quite well besides the hatred and the studio will no longer have to cater to fans of the original two films.

I hope the movie ends up being good and I reserve judgement until I see it (or if reviews are terrible I will wait) but my biggest gripe about this film is how Feig and Co have reacted to the negative buzz. It's unprofessional and your work should do the talking, not your mouth.

Let's hope the movie will be good. I'll be glad to be proven wrong because I don't have much faith in this movie but we'll see.

If there's a steady paycheck involved, I'll say whatever you want.

That was my first thought as well. They have to be paying them off in order to get them to say shit like this. I bet Herold Ramis RIP wouldn't give this praise.
