Ghostbusters 3 'Moving Ahead Without Harold Ramis'
Death of actor unlikely to affect long-gestated sequel, it is reported...
The long-awaited third instalment of the Ghostbusters movie franchise is reportedly set to go ahead without late star Harold Ramis.
The 69-year-old actor, director and writer, who died this week, was due to reprise his role as Egon Spengler in the new movie.
And now The Hollywood Reporter claims that director Ivan Reitman is set to meet bosses at Sony Pictures to work out a way forward.
Ramis, Dan Ackroyd and Bill Murray were apparently set to make a cameo appearance as the original Ghostbusters, handing over the torch to a new trio for the sequel.
A source told THR: "There will be some repercussions. He was always great to bounce something off of, and that will certainly be missed, but it won't affect the script."
Ramis' death has been attributed to complications from autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis.
