Ernie Hudson did a new interview clarifying comments that people interpreted as saying he would be returning for Jason Reitman’s Ghostbusters. Hudson told The Johnny Dare Morning Show that while he had expressed interest in reprising his role as Winston Zeddemore, he hasn’t yet been contacted about the possibility.

“I don’t know. Nobody has approached me with a contract,” Hudson said. “I think the Ghostbusters fans have been wanting [a “passing of the torch”] dynamic to happen, so I know whatever happens is going to be in that tradition… I’m excited about that. I’d be more excited if they called me and offered me a job, but no matter what happens the fact that they’re doing it is really cool.”

Reitman is set to direct a sequel to the original two films that has been described as a passing of the torch, which will release in summer of 2020.
