Ghostbusters 3 still happening, script being reworked
The tragic death of Harold Ramis is, as you might expect, leading to a change or two in Ghostbusters 3.
The tragic, keenly felt death of Ghostbusters co-star and co-writer Harold Ramis earlier in the week still feels like a real shock to the system. As we said at the time, our thoughts very much remain with Ramis' family and friends as they come to terms with their loss. With that in mind, this post will be brief, update on a project he was involved with, and move on. Hope that's okay.
Ramis had been involved in the long-gestating Ghostbusters 3, which remains an active project on the Sony slate. It still is too, and Ramis had been set to make a cameo appearance in the film. As it turns out, it looks like that was set to be the extent of his involvement.
The Hollywood Reporter has broken the news that director Ivan Reitman is set to meet with Sony in the days ahead to work out how and when to move forward. Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky's script will need to be reworked. But Ghostbusters 3 is still going to happen, and it's been all but confirmed that it's still a film the studio is pursuing.. It's not expected to start shooting until next year.
