(Newser) Ghostbusters III will still be made following Harold Ramis' death, but the script will be reworked, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Ramis was originally to appear in a cameo in the sequel alongside fellow original co-stars Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray; the trio was to pass the reins to a new ghostbusting team. (Who might that new team be? Prior to Ramis' death, the most recent rumor involved Jonah Hill and Emma Stone, according to the Huffington Post.) Ivan Reitman, who is directing Ghostbusters III, will meet with Sony producers soon to figure out a plan, sources say. But the script was not very far along yet, and filming was not planned to begin this year.

Ramis and the ghost of the dead librarian are having rip roaring sex on a table in the research center of the library, in the new movie. The female ghost is heard to be screaming, "Thank you, Lord. Oh, THANK you Lord!" So, they are deleting the words but allowing you to read their lips...Then, some little kid from a TV commercial is chopped in who says, "Dis-Gusting!"
