Entertainment Weekly has brought word that Ernie Hudson will be reprising his role as Winston Zeddemore from the classic sci-fi comedy Ghostbusters for the upcoming reboot alongside original co-stars Sigourney Weaver (The Cabin in the Woods), Dan Aykroyd (Zombieland: Double Tap) and Annie Potts (Toy Story 4).

Actor Dan Aykroyd will appear in the upcoming "Ghostbusters 2020". "We're shooting the new Ghostbusters right now, coming out next summer, so I'm hoping that you'll enjoy it as much as the other movies that we've done", Hudson said. The movie is set to focus on whole new characters, but members of the original cast are also making a comeback. It will be all... most of the original people and then young stars. "However, this new movie will follow the trajectory of the original film". Dan said during an interview on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast that he will be returning to the Ghostbusters 2020 film.

The director of the first two Ghostbusters movies, and father of Jason Reitman, who is directing the new film, also went far enough to confirm the familial connection, but wouldn't go further than that.

"If someone asks if you're a god, you say yes!" he added, quoting his character's famous line from the iconic 1984 film. Now, the fans are eagerly looking forward to see what Jason Reitman does with Ghostbusters 2020.

Swooping magpie causes fatal cycle crash in New South Wales
An elderly man died in a bike accident after trying to escape a swooping magpie south of Sydney, police said Monday (Sept 16). He suffered serious head injuries when he collided with a fence and was thrown to the ground.

In June it was announced Paul Rudd would join the cast with the Ant-Man star saying: "I can't wait to join the cast this fall for Ghostbusters".

Of course, there was no indication that Egon Spengler, or any of the Ghostbusters had kids, but it's been 30 years since Ghostbusters 2, so it's certainly possible they all settled down after the last movie.

Ghostbusters 2020 opens in theaters on July 10, 2020.
