Earlier this year we wrote about Phone Bhootan upcoming Indian Hindi-language horror film that will be released next month that has drawn some comparisons to ghost hunters thanks to a poster design that appears to have been heavily inspired by the Bill Murray-led 1984 comedy, as well as the 2016 reboot.

I still hope and the possibility is still there. I would love to do a new Ghostbusters game in India.
Hudson also explained how much his character, Winston Zeddemore, changed between the events of the 1984 film and Ghostbusters: Afterlifesaying:
“He got older, he stopped being a ghost hunter… He became a successful businessman, but he loves being a ghost hunter. In the movie, when the world is threatened, he puts on the jumpsuit and comes back there.
