He stated, “Ivan was really, really a brilliant man and I have just so much love and appreciation for him. The original script, Winston was in the very beginning of the movie.

It took me 10 years to get past that and enjoy the movie and just embrace the movie. ‘Ghostbusters’ was really hard to make peace with it.”
