Harold Ramis recently stopped by MTV News to chat about his new Jack Black comedy “The Year One” (in theaters June 19). MTV took the opportunity to ask Ramis about the upcoming “Ghostbusters” remake. He co-wrote the first two “Ghostbusters” movies and also starred in them as the nerdy Dr. Egon Spengler.
Well, guess what?! Ramis (now 64!) says all the original core players are onboard for the reboot, including Bill Murray (Dr. Peter Venkman) and Dan Aykroyd (Dr. Raymond Stantz), who co-wrote the original films. “We’re all going to be in it in different kinds of roles,” Ramis said. “We’re going to be the sage mentors. There are going to be young Ghostbusters.”
More after the jump, including a video…
With Judd Apatow signed on as a producer, expectations are high for the new movie. You have to wonder if Apatow favorites like Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen will be involved. That would be awesome.
But here’s what Rogen said when asked about it: “What? That’d have to be one great f—ing script for anyone to touch that.” They’ve got some pretty big shoes to fill, that’s for sure.
