Ernie Hudson is the first of the original cast members to weigh in on the announcement, via The Telegraph, and he seems less than excited about the idea.
"I heard it was going to be a total reboot, and that it would have nothing to do with the other two movies," he said. "If it has nothing to do with the other two movies, and it's all female, then why are you calling it Ghostbusters?"
"I love females. I hope that if they go that way at least they'll be funny, and if they're not funny at least hopefully it'll be sexy. I love the idea of including women, I think that's great."
"But all-female I think would be a bad idea. I don't think the fans want to see that."
"Maybe it will come out and be the most amazing thing, but in my opinion I think it would be wrong to do another movie that didn't include the guys. And that didn't include me!"
Director Paul Feig has left the door open for Hudson and the other original Ghostbusters cast members to make cameo appearances in the reboot, so if Hudson really wants to be included, he has his chance.
