Speaking to videogaming247, Ernie Hudson – the actor who played Winston Zeddmore in the Ghostbusters movie – has revealed the length of the upcoming game’s script. Basically, it’s a half a Haze.

“You know, I read the script, and it’s a really good script,” he said. “It’s huge. It covers every possibility. A regular film script is 120 pages, this thing’s 480 pages, or something.”

Dan Akroyd and Harold Ramis, the talent behind the original film script, wrote the new, original content for the game.

Hudson was at the MCM Expo in London promoting the game, to which he’s added a VO.

“All the characters are back, including Bill Murray, which I was surprised at, because Bill tends to not do these things,” he said. “If you look at his movies, I think the only time he ever did a sequel was with Ghostbusters. And it took five years to get him to do that.”

We’ll post the full interview with Ernie later this week.
