"I got the call while shooting Spy," Feig told Time Out London of taking on the job.
He continued: "Then I had an idea: what if I could cast all the funny women I know?
"The backlash? A lot of people are angry that we're touching the franchise. I get that. It's legitimate. But when it's 'How dare you put women in!'. That's just misogyny."
Of how Hollywood has been wrong on female comedy, Feig said: "Before I did Bridesmaids, everyone told me that it wouldn't work. And they sounded compelling. »
Get ready for more Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin! Variety has confirmed that Netflix has renewed the Fonda/Tomlin starring vehicle Grace and Frankie for a second season. It is expected that Season 2, which also stars Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston, will debut in 2016. From Marta Kauffman (Friends) and Howard J. Morris (Home Improvement), Grace and Frankie tells the story of two frenemies who find solace in each other after their husbands surprise them with the revelation that they are both gay and planning to marry. The series also features the characters’ children (Brooklyn Decker, June Diane Raphael, Ethan Embry, and Baron Vaughn) in lead roles, and Season 1 guest stars have included such names as Craig T. Nelson and Ernie Hudson, among others. Grace and Frankie got off to a bit of a slow and uneven start, but the series really begins to find itself in its third episode and truly comes into… »

Ernie Hudson is really hoping his phone rings soon with an offer to appear in the new Ghostbusters movie. "I have not been officially asked to do anything so if I am, I'd love to be a part of it," Hudson, who played Winston Zeddemore in the original franchise, told me last night at the premiere of Netflix's new series Grace and Frankie. "I think I should be the old guy who's been around a long time," he said, adding, "I want be the guy who maybe trains the people." The people he's referring to are Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Cecily Strong and Leslie Jones, the stars of director Paul Feig's remake. "I'm excited," Hudson said. »
Ah, 1989. The year the Berlin Wall came down and Yugoslavia won the Eurovision Song Contest. It was also a big year for film, with Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade topping the box office and Batman dominating the summer with its inescapable marketing blitz.
Outside the top 10 highest-grossing list, which included Back To The Future II, Dead Poets Society and Honey I Shrunk The Kids, 1989 also included a plethora of less commonly-appreciated films. Some were big in their native countries but only received a limited release in the Us and UK. Others were poorly received but have since been reassessed as cult items.
From comedies to thrillers, here's our pick of 25 underappreciated films from the end of the 80s...

Marvel has trained Chadwick Boseman well as the actor was unwilling to even reveal whether or not he's read the Captain America: Civil War script in an interview with MTV News last night (Scarlett Johansson was a little more forthcoming recently as you can see by clicking here). He did however tell the site that he's exploring all sorts of aspects of "history and science" to get his take on Black Panther right both in that movie and his planned solo outing which has now been delayed until 2018. The actor also addresses those rumours about Ernie Hudson playing his father T'Chaka, so be sure to check out the view above for the interview in full. Are you excited to see Boseman's take on the characer? As always, be sure to share your thoughts on this in the usual place. »
According to Latino Review, a former Ghostbuster might be up for what could be a rather significant role in Marvel's Black Panther movie, which is set for a 2018 release (3 long years away!). That actor is Ernie Hudson, who, assuming Lt's report is confirmed, will play T'Challa, Black Panther's father - T'Chaka. As we already know, Chadwick Boseman will play the title character from the fictional land of Wakanda, which is rich in vibranium, the mineral used to make Captain America's shield. The various rulers of Wakanda, including T'Chaka (who Ernie Hudson will play if signed), hid his country from the world to protect the resource, but was later murdered by an adventurer named Ulysses »

Black Panther won't be coming our way till 2018, due to Spider-Man's first foray in the Marvel Cinematic Universe knocking it from it's original 2017 release date, but with Chadwick Boseman donning the panther mask, alter ego of Prince T'Challa of the technology advanced African nation of Wakanda, for a big role in Captain America: Civil War, rumours are circulating about casting of his supporting cast, namely his father King T'Chaka. We've heard rumblings that Civil War will travel to Wakanda, possibly as part T'Challa's origin story, and now Latino Review are reporting that Winston Zedemore himself, Ernie Hudson, is in line to play the role of his father, citing he has been hitting the gym and spotted with back issues of Black Panther comics. This doesn't mean he's locked in for the role, and the rumour is still just that at this stage, but if Marvel really is looking to cast King T'Chaka, »

Ever since we heard the news of Chadwick Boseman playing T'Challa or The Black Panther, news has been quiet out of the Wakanda camp. That is until now, as rumors have surfaced of Ernie Hudson playing King T'Chaka father of T'Challa and ruler of Wakanda.
While this is still a rumor, we can't help but be excited for the prospect of seeing the Great Ernie Hudson play the King of Wakanda. Hudson is no stranger to the limelight, being a veteran of television and film for over 30 years. We have no doubt he'll do the King T'Chaka justice.
However, the party may be short lived. If they follow the comics as well as we know Marvel to do, this may be Ernie Hudson's first and last Marvel movie. »

Black Panther isn’t due in theaters until July 6, 2018, but we’ll see T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) on the big screen well before that because the character is going to be introduced in the May 6, 2016 release, Captain America: Civil War. Could the same be true for his father, King T’Chaka, too? According to Latino Review’s El Mayimbe, not only is Ernie Hudson circling the role, but he’s already hitting the gym and going through back issues of Marvel Comic's Black Panther, too. Studying up and working out certainly doesn’t mean Hudson is going to lock the gig, but if Marvel really is looking to cast the role now, the character has got to be making a pre-Black Panther appearance. There was that recent casting call that suggested Civil War could include a scene with Wakandan subjects, perhaps even a T’Challa’s origin story, so »

We're only a few weeks away from "Avengers: Age of Ultron," a film which also includes the first hints of the world that we'll later see in the standalone "Black Panther" movie due for release in 2018.
Today, El Mayimbe has posted a report that says former "Ghostbusters" star Ernie Hudson is circling the role of King T'Chaka in the movie. The character is the ruler of Wakanda, and father to Chadwick Boseman's character T'Challa (a.k.a. The Black Panther).
The report says Hudson has been hitting the gym and picking up back issues of the Black Panther comic books that pertain to T'Chaka. As the film has no director yet, it'll be some time off. But Boseman's T'Challa is set to make his debut in "Captain America: Civil War" which begins shooting very shortly.
Could King T'Chaka also make an appearance in that film? Another question »

Ernie Hudson is said to be circling the role of King T’Chaka in the upcoming Black Panther movie. According to Latino Review, the Ghostbusters actor has been “hitting the gym and picking up back issues of Marvel Comics’ Black Panther.”
Chadwick Boseman is set to play Black Panther, the son of T’Chaka, in next year’s Captain America: Civil War before getting his own film in 2018. At this time it is not known if there are plans for T’Chaka to appear in Civil War, which is set to go into production this month, or whether Marvel is already looking to fill out key roles for the solo movie. Of course, nothing is confirmed either, so mark this one down as a rumour for the time being.

As Marvel prepares to unleash Avengers: Age of Ultron into the world in just a few short weeks, the studio is already prepping their monstrous Phase Three slate, which includes nine movies in just a three year span. One of them is Black Panther, slated for release on July 8, 2016, which already has Chadwick Boseman attached to star as T'Challa. While the project does not have a writer or director yet, El Mayimbe reports that Ernie Hudson is circling the role of T'Challa's father, T'Chaka. Here's what he had to say below.
Naturally, this has not been confirmed by Marvel, but El Mayimbe's sources reveal that Ernie Hudson has reportedly been hitting the gym and picking up back issues of the Black Panther comic books that pertain to T'Chaka. »
For people of my generation Ernie Hudson will always be remembered as a member of the Ghostbusters. Of course, he's had a lengthy post-Ghostbusters career and even calls his role as Winston Zeddemore the "most painful" part of his career. Now, perhaps a whole new generation of moviegoers will see him as a different character as Latino-Review.com's Umberto Gonzalez reports Hudson "is circling the role of King T'Chaka ruler of Wakanda and father of Chadwick Boseman's T'Challa" in Marvel's Black Panther. We already know Boseman will make his first appearance as T'Challa in Captain America: Civil War and keeping the Black Panther ties alive, Andy Serkis is playing Ulysses Klaw in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Klaw, in comics lore, is responsible for murdering King T'Chaka, which could serve as a through-line for these films, tying them all together. https://twitter.com/Ernie_Hudson/status/521878942895325184 readmore postid="173069" However, »

Marvel’s Black Panther solo film may have been pushed from its original November 2017 release date to the summer of 2018 to accommodate the next Spider-Man movie, but if we’re lucky, could get our first look at Wakanda sooner than that. Chadwick Boseman is set to debut as T’Challa in next year’s Captain America: Civil War and now, a key role in the Black Panther mythos may have been cast.
According to Latino-Review, former Ghostbuster Ernie Hudson is circling the role of King T’Chaka, T’Challa’s father. In the comics, T’Chaka rules over and protects Wakanda and its vibranium mines before being killed by Ulysses Klaw, who’s being played by Andy Serkis in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
The new report claims that Hudson has been “hitting the gym” and picking up back issues of Black Panther comics, specifically those that feature T’Chaka. Either »

With Avengers 2 coming in the next few weeks, and Ant-Man following shortly after, it.s time for Marvel to firm up the cast for the Phase 3 films. We already have a Black Panther in Chadwick Boseman, teases for which we.ll be seeing in Age of Ultron, but he needs some supporting characters to fill the ranks. On that note, a new rumor has hit the web, revealing that the Wakandan hero could be joined by original Ghostbusters star Ernie Hudson. According to Latino Review, Hudson is rumored to be circling the role of King T.Chaka. For those who need a quick brush up of their Marvel comic history, this guy is the Chieftan of Wakanda and the father to T.Challa, aka Black Panther. He decided to keep his kingdom in hiding after a meteorite filled with the coveted vibranium (what Cap.s shield is made out of »
It looks like somebody has given Ernie Hudson something else to do other than complain about the "Ghostbusters" movies that have women, or how the franchise didn't make him as famous as he thought he would be. Marvel apparently has an open spot on the roster, giving Hudson another chance to step into the blockbuster playground. Latino Review reports that Hudson is circling the role of King T'Chaka. He is the ruler of Wakanda, the home of Black Panther (set to be played by Chadwick Boseman), and in comics lore, he was murdered by Ulysses Klaw (played by Andy Serkis in the upcoming "Avengers: Age Of Ultron"). So, will we see the character pop up in "Captain America: Civil War," where Black Panther is also expected to drop by? Or is he just prepping for the solo "Black Panther" movie (which seems doubtful since it doesn't drop until 2018)? We'll leave the guesswork to you. »

El Mayimbe is back with another Marvel scoop, and this one is sure to make Black Panther fans very happy. It looks like the next major role to be cast will be that of King T'Chaka; and according to Mayimbe Ernie Hudson (The Crow, Ghostbusters, Oz) is being looked at to play him. T'Chaka was T'Challa/Black Panther's Father, and in the comics held the title of Chieftain of Wakanda -- pledged to protect the sacred metal known as Vibranium. He was also an ally of Captain America's, and had superhuman strength, speed and agility thanks to a sacred herb that he alone was granted access to. Of course the movie version will probably differ significantly in that regard! Hudson will be best know for playing Winston Zeddemore in the Ghostbusters flicks, but he's appeared in many popular movies since then including The Crow and The Hand That Rocks The Cradle. »
