Hollywood has refused to give up on the idea of a new Ghostbusters sequel for decades now. But even the recent passing of original star and screenwriter Harold Ramis hasn't derailed the project, as director Ivan Reitman is reportedly meeting with Sony to discuss how to adapt the script following Ramis' death.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ramis was only going to have a cameo in the film, which if true should be easy to rework. More importantly, this seemingly confirms all those reports that the third movie will focus on a new generation of Ghostbusters. Personally, I didn't want Ghostbusters: The Next Generation in the first place, and now that Egon won't be in it, I want it even less.
You know who agrees with me? Winston Zeddemore, better known as actor Ernie Hudson. When accosted by TMZ earlier this week, Hudson said: "There can't be another Ghostbusters without Harold. There could be another ghost something but there won't be. That was always my fear. That something would happen before we all got together."
