Warm up your fingers–a whole lotta ghostbusting is on the way.
The success of this year’s Ghostbusters: Afterlife has led to even more supernatural shenanigans for the original crew. One of the legacy cast members–Ernie Hudson–this week let the spirit out of the bag, according to a report on JoBlo.com, and revealed that another video game based on the iconic film is in the pipeline.
Hudson in an interview said the team is “doing another video game. They’re scheduling it now to do the recording. I’m not sure who’s going to do it, but I know me and Danny (Dan Aykroyd), I think. I’m not sure about Billy (Bill Murray). I don’t know when they’ll bring it out, but it’s definitely happening.”
The actor added that the developers have been “sending me prototypes of the character to get the image right, which they seem to have a hard time doing. It’s so weird that they can get Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd and Harold Remis to look exactly like they look, but I end up looking like Eddie Murphy or somebody.”
There is no word yet on which companies are working on the new game, but it was reported that IllFonic will be involved somehow. The original 2009 Ghostbusters: The Video Game was developed by Terminal Reality for Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and by Red Fly Studio for the PlayStation 2 and Wii versions.
The first game–which was well-received by critics and was described by Aykroyd as “essentially the third movie”–sold more than 3 million copies.
