Casablanca wasn't the 1942 "Definitive Version" the second or third version it? (There's a 1955 and a 1983 TV Series) and there's a few movies with names that suggest they could be Sequels and/or alternate versions listed on IMDB. I seem to recall either Ben Maciewicz or Robert Osbourne mentioned at least one, if not two or more other versions of Casablanca, at least one of them prior to it. (Though maybe, I'm misremembering?)

It Happened One Christmas was a remake of It's a Wonderful Life.
Ah, I remember that one, I knew there had to be at least one.

The idea of an extremely late sequel to Ghostbusters was bad to begin with. The idea of doing and extremely late sequel without Ramis or Murray is a terrible, terrible, terrible idea.
So reboot it is, then. I knew that it was a question not of if, but when.

The "Casablanca" starring Myra Dinglebat and Peter Beardsley was the definitive one.

Does "Overdrawn at the Memory Bank" count as a Casablanca remake?

Given the nature of the franchise, Egon could always appear in a sequel. Use old footage and make him look ghostly. They could even use it as the catalyst for the start of the movie, the funeral for their friend.

And I wouldn't mind seeing Egon slime Bill Murray's character.

Poor Egon!

Of course, you notice in that pic they've got him in the ghost trap. There's no way they'll let him go!

Not to mention "It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie."
Some of that movie was bizarre (and plenty of it was predictable), but it's pretty impressive they did a callback to Doc Hopper's French Fried Frog Legs.

Man this news was a real kick in the teeth...

Concerning the sequel and it getting done or not, I wonder what Harold Ramis would want. I think he'd want the show to go on if possible.

Nice, and a scene with Egon sliming Peter would be worth the price of admission! I was thinking his (Egons) sudden death could have the guys considering disbanding in grief, but when a visit from Egons spirit brings information of a coming ghostly catastrophe they are reinvigorated into action.

And if they set it now, they can lways have Egon and Janine's son or daughter join the team.

Love that idea. It's sensible. We could also maybe see Egon hang out with Slimer

Although I would love it if he didn't immediately appear to them, but rather he give them signs that he's still around in the form of traits that used to annoy them when still around.

They could find a Slinky that has been straightened...

And a preponderance of molds, spores, and fungus growing in the office.




Seriously though, I say let it rest.
