Winston Zeddemore will have an important role in the new Ghostbusters

The Ice Menace promises to put the spotlight on the member of the group played by Ernie Hudson.

One of the missions of the new episode of the franchise Ghostbusterss will be to highlight a member of the original Ghostbusters gang: Winston Zeddemore. In the first draft of the script, he was supposed to be part of the team from the start in the first film released in 1984, but was ultimately relegated to a bit of a piece, joining the Ghostbusters along the way after responding to an offer of employment.

The end of Ghostbusters: Legacy (available on FirstMax) already hinted at the importance of Winston in a possible sequel. We see him reopening the barracks and having the famous Ecto-1 renovated. Logically, he will finally have a major role in Ghostbusters: The Ice Menace. Ernie HudsonWinston’s interpreter, explains to Empire:

Winston is a rich man now, and he funds research into new technology and the science behind ghost hunting. When the world is threatened… Who are you going to call? He puts the costume back on with the rest of the team“.

An exclusive image ofEmpire reveals Doctor Venkman (Bill Murray) and Winston at the heart of the action against The Threat of Ice from the next film:

Dan Aykroyd, who will be back in the shoes of Ray Stantz, also talks about this new distribution of roles. “Ray retired. He had health problems, insurance problems. Winston is the boss now and he decides that Ray should step back from ghost hunting and just be an advisor. Ray doesn’t like that. Gozer is gone, but an equally terrible threat emerges from Queens and Ray wants to drive the Cadillac“.

As for Bill Murray, his return was also inevitable. “Bill had always hesitated to come back, and for good reason, his expectations are high”, explain Jason Reitmanthe son ofIvan Reitman, director of the first two films. After staging Ghostbusters: The Legacy, this time he co-signed the screenplay with Gil Kennan, promoted to director, who also weighed in on the presence of Bill Murray. “He loves Gil, they have already worked together (on The City of Shadowsin 2008), so it was sure that he would be there“.

Ghostbusters: The Ice Menace aims to make something new with a little bit of old. The elders (Sigourney Weaver And Annie Potts will also be there) being there to support the new generation of ghost hunters composed of Carrie Coon, McKenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard And Paul Ruddall equipped with their “Proton Packs.

Ghostbusters: The Ice Menace will be released in France on April 10, 2024. Here is its trailer:
