The latest Ghostbusters film to date has turned out to be extremely controversial – the “female” restart of 2016, directed by Paul Fig, has not found a response from the general public. Against this backdrop, fans of the original dilogy are even more eagerly awaiting the release of “Ghostbusters: Heirs”, in which Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and many others will return to their long-standing roles. In a fresh interview with YouTube channel Yes Have Some, Hudson assured that the new film will not disappoint viewers:
There were so many announcements and so many unrealized plans. But it was only after I finally got to know the script that I thought, “Not only is this actually happening, but the new story is also very good.” This movie truly lives up to what fans are hoping to see. There is a close connection with the first two parts. I liked the version with the female cast, but it was a completely different take on Hunters. So as I read the script, I was getting more and more excited about the upcoming film. By that time, all my previous doubts had disappeared.
Initially, “Ghostbusters: Heirs” was supposed to be released in July, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the premiere was postponed to March 4, 2021. The film will be directed by Jason Reitman, who took the place of his father Ivan Reitman, who shot the first two parts of the franchise.
