Ernie Hudson, star of the original Ghostbusters, will appear in the reboot of the movie, and can be seen in this photo with the all-female cast that includes Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon and Kristen Wiig.

Hudson joining the cast is a bit of a surprise, given that his initial reaction to the news that director Paul Feig would be doing a remake with comedic actresses was less than positive.

He told the Telegraph, “I love the idea of including women, I think that’s great. But all-female I think would be a bad idea.”

However, Ernie has since changed his opinion on the film, saying, “Four fiercely funny, foxy, females busting ghosts … phenomenal!”

Ghostbusters is scheduled to open in theaters on July 22, 2016.
