Ernie Hudson, who plays Winston Zeddemore in the Ghostbusters franchise, says that there might be a new Ghostbusters project in the works. Hudson recently appeared on an installment of Jake’s Takes to promote the third season of the BET+ series The Family Business, where he revealed that work on a new Ghostbusters movie is already in progress.

“If they threw it at me I would be honored to do it,” Hudson said when asked if he’d be willing to participate in a fourth Ghostbusters movie. “I’ve heard rumors they’re writing a new one, so, we’ll see,” he added.

Hudson, who appears in the upcoming Ghostbusters sequel, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, is more than ready to strap on a proton pack and bust ghosts in another film. I like the sound of that and hope that he gets his chance. Winston was always my favorite Ghostbuster. While the other characters are memorable and fun, Winston Zeddemore always struck me as the most practical of the bunch. He accepted the supernatural at face value and never shied away from a fight. He may not know the science like Egon or be as charismatic as Peter, but every team needs a skeptic, and Winston brought all that and more to the table.

Scripted by Jason Reitman and Gil Kenan, Ghostbusters: Afterlife stars McKenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard, and Carrie Coon as “a family with single mom Callie and her two kids, Trevor and Phoebe, who move into a beaten-down farmhouse in Oklahoma only to discover that there’s something strange in the neighborhood. Unexplained quakes shake the town. There’s an old mine nearby that bears the name of Ivo Shandor, who built the Manhattan high-rise in the 1984 film that channeled the forces of evil.”

Paul Rudd plays “a local teacher who’s been documenting the unexplained phenomena, befriending Callie and her kids, and helping make the connection between the current weirdness and the events of three decades before.”

The cast also includes Bokeem Woodbine, Tracy Letts, and Oliver Cooper, with Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, and Annie Potts reprising their roles from the original Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II.

Ivan Reitman produced Ghostbusters: Afterlife, with Aykroyd serving as executive producer alongside Jason Blumenfeld, Michael Beugg, Aaron L. Gilbert, Jason Cloth, and Kenan.
