Following the sudden death of Harold Ramis just a couple of days ago, a new report claims that Ghostbusters III is not only still on track, but is currently being reworked due to the fact that the beloved actor, director and writer was set to make a cameo appearance in the movie.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the sequel’s director Ivan Reitman is set to meet with Sony this week in order to discuss how best to move ahead with the project which sources confirm is in active development. It was hoped that Ramis would appear along with Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd, before passing the baton to a new trio of heroes.

The script (which still isn’t completed to the point where production can actually begin) from The Office writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, will now need to be revamped, although studio sources said: “He was always great to bounce something off of, and that will certainly be missed. But it won’t affect the script.”

Either way, Ramis’ Dr. Egon Spengler will be greatly missed – as will the fact that he co-wrote the first two Ghostbusters – and many fans took to Twitter last night to say that the movie should now be scrapped altogether. What do you think?
