Plans are underway for a third Ghostbusters film, which will feature an all-female team as well as be a reboot directed by Paul Feig.
Feig previously stated he was open to having the original cast return, but in new roles for the film.
Well, the cast of the original Ghostbusters appeared on the Today Show to promote the new Ghostbusters Blu-Ray that is now available, with Al Roker bringing up Ghostbusters 3.
Roker directly asks Bill Murray, “When is there going to be a Ghostbusters 3?”
Murray responds by stating it’s hard to recreate the magic, but hears there will be a female cast.
“It’s really hard to recreate something that was so beautiful. So wonderful,” Murray said. “The studio would like to make a movie and continue the franchise. I hear there is going to be one that is all women.”
“Ghost babes,” Sigourney Weaver interjected.
“Ghost babes. Something like that,” Bill Murray stated.
“Ghostbuster babes,” Weaver added.
Roker then suggested Sigourney Weaver could still be in it with her reaction less than enthusiastic as she rolls her eyes.
Murray then suggested Ernie Hudson could also have a roll, with the cast laughing and Hudson saying, “Go for it. I’m an actor.”
Hudson previously made comments where he was dismissive to the notion of a rebooted ghostbusters as well.
Check out the video for the full interview.
It’s been announced that Paul Feig will direct a Ghostbusters reboot featuring a female team of ghostbusters.
Some people aren’t happy, such as original ghostbuster, Ernie Hudson.
“I heard it was going to be a total reboot, and that it would have nothing to do with the other two movies,” he said, reports The Telegraph. “If it has nothing to do with the other two movies, and it’s all female, then why are you calling it Ghostbusters? 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.”
Now Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has commented on the female team as well, but takes a slightly different view.
“I can understand how people can be upset about a Ghostbusters reboot – people are always upset about reboots. But to be upset because the Ghostbusters are women?! HOW DOES HAVING A PENIS HELP YOU CATCH GHOSTS? If anything, it could be a hindrance, because you could snag it on something,” Gunn posted on his Facebook.
The cast of the new Ghostbusters hasn’t been announced as of yet, but it Feig did say he would make room for the originals, but in brand new roles.
Ernie Hudson, known for Ghostbusters, lets it be known in an interview that he is up for a role in The Flash TV series set for the CW.
It’s possible Ernie Hudson could be up for the role as the latter.
Hudson continues giving some hints as to the the storyline surrounding the character.
“His [The Flash’s] adopted dad or something. His dad has a problem and I don’t want to give that story away. I’ll tell you more about it if I get the job,” Hudson said.
Here is the previously released description for Detective West, which seems to fit the bill:
DETECTIVE WEST – Late 40s to Early 50s – African American -Detective West is an honest, blue-collar cop who’s seen it all. A soulful, funny caring father to Iris, and a surrogate father to Barry, West came up through the foster system himself. He took in Barry after his mother’s murder and his father’s imprisonment. He believes in Barry and supports Barry’s efforts to prove his father’s innocence.
Grant Gustin recently appeared on two episodes of Arrow as Barry Allen. The mid-season finale saw Barry Allen gain the powers of The Flash, with Gustin going on to star in the TV series which has a yet-to-be announced premiere.
