Harold Ramis' Daughter On The Possibility Of A CG Egon In A New GHOSTBUSTERS Film

At San Diego Comic-Con Ivan Reitman revealed that he was working on more Ghostusters, and teased the possibility of adding Harold Ramis a.k.a. Egon digitally, an idea Ramis' daughter recently spoke about.

With the tease of more Ghostbusters on the way, one thing that fans have been wondering is what will the film do with Egon due to the unfortunate passing of Harold Ramis.

When chatting about the possibility of more films, director Ivan Reitman was asked about whether or not he would use CGI to bring Ramis back as Egon. "It’s possible. … It’s something we’re thinking of," he said.

The Hollywood Reporter reached out to Ramis' daughter, Violet Ramis Stiel, to ask if she had heard of the comments made by Reitman. "It's bizarre," Ramis Stiel said. "Personally, for me, it is hard to imagine that people would accept it, but who knows. The technology now is amazing."

The question then shifted to whether or not she would be okay with seeing her dad digitally added to a new film. She responded with, "I try to think what would he have thought. If it's great and it works, then good. And if there is a problem, then obviously no."

The use of CGI to bring actors back from the grave is still a newer technology. It was used on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to bring back Peter Cushing as Grand Moff Tarkin, to mixed reviews.

As of right now there is no confirmed Ghostbusters movie in the works.
