Jason Reitman's Ghostbusters 2020 is a sequel to the original two films. However, the cast of those classic movies has not yet been officially confirmed as returning, and Ernie Hudson, who played Winston Zeddemore, says he does not have a deal to appear in the upcoming movie as of now.
“I know they’re doing [Ghostbusters 2020]," Hudson told syracuse.com. "I know Jason Reitman is going to direct it. He’s an amazing filmmaker. I’d love to be a part of it. I don’t have a deal yet, and I hope it works out," he said. "But no matter what, I know Jason’s going to make a great movie."
In the original Ghostbusters, Hudson's Zeddemore was an ordinary man who joined the ghost-hunting group in hopes of a high salary despite not initially having any paranormal experiences or beliefs. Hudson reprised the role in 1989's Ghostbusters II and 2009's Ghostbusters: The Video Game.
Ghostbusters 2020 is directed by Jason Reitman (Up in the Air), who also co-wrote the film with Gil Kenan (Monster House). The film stars Finn Wolfhard, Carrie Coon, Paul Rudd and Mckenna Grace. It is scheduled for release on July 20, 2020.
