Talking with MovieWeb, Harold Ramis gives an overwhelmingly positive picture of the newly penned script. To summarise, the link between the Office writers Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg, Harold Ramis and ultimately GB3 was “convenient” to the studios. No new actors have been approached or signed, for the time being.
How does Egon live in 2012, Ramis shares this thoughts,
I had two initial first instincts. One was that Egon had become a shaved head Buddhist monk. That is not going to happen. The thing that I pitched for my character is that he’s been living in Geneva, and he works for the Institute of Imaginary Science. The work we are doing doesn’t require any conceptual, intellectual, special, or mathematical models for what we are doing. Even we don’t know what we are doing. It’s that theoretical.
And on the difficulties of writing the sequel,
I think we are just going to try and make a good movie. The intention of a sequel is not to give an audience more of what they didn’t get enough of the first time. It’s to give the audience something that is new. We want them to feel that they are having a new experience of some kind. That becomes a tightrope. Yeah, we definitely are introducing new Ghostbusters. That much is for sure. And there will be inter-dimensional creatures visiting New York. And we will deal with it. That’s all I am allowed to say at this point.
