Ernie Hudson hits Toronto – expects big Ghosthead turn-out, talks GB3
As mentioned last month, Ernie Hudson is a guest in attendance at the inaugural Wizard World Toronto convention – talking to the press in advance of his appearance, Hudson spoke a great deal about his affection for Ghostbusters fans;
“Ghostbusters” co-star Ernie Hudson will be in the city for the inaugural Wizard World Toronto Comic Con, and wherever he goes, so do his costumed, fervent fans — homemade Ectomobiles, proton packs and all, he says.
“I’ve never done a convention, maybe one exception, where somebody didn’t show up in a ‘Ghostbuster’ outfit and backpack and the whole thing — and usually it’s not just somebody but it’s a lot of somebodies,” Hudson, 64, said in a recent phone interview from his home in Hidden Hills, Calif.
“I was at the Dragon Con convention in Atlanta a few years back and there were at least 55 people, men and women, in ‘Ghostbuster’ outfits. They make these things themselves which are better than the ones that we have in the movie.
“I’ve seen every kind of Ectomobile you can imagine. In the movie we had the Cadillac so I’ve seen a lot of those, but in Brussels they’d made a Volkswagen bus into a ‘Ghostbuster’ thing with the lights and the whole thing.”
As well, Hudson says he expects to be grilled about a third Ghostbusters film, and told the Toronto Sun what he knows thus far;
While he hasn’t received official word from the studio, he said he’s heard from co-stars Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, as well as director Ivan Reitman, that they want to see it happen.
“Ivan said … ‘If we get a script it looks like it’s going to happen,’ so that’s the only thing official,”
“If we get a script…” of course means, “If we get a script all parties agree upon…”
