Our colleagues at MTV Movies were kind enough — as always — to ask a few video game questions for us during their recent interview with Harold Ramis, star and writer of the original “Ghostbusters” movie.
Ramis revealed the measure of his involvement in the upcoming “Ghostbusters” video game, saying that he and fellow “Ghostbusters” movie writer and star Dan Aykroyd “kind of consulted” on the project. “Dan consulted a lot on the story. I just kind of helped him change the dialogue.”
Ramis also did voice work for his character, Egon Spengler. That proved to be a surprise challenge: “Fortunately the voice still fits,” he joked. “The uniform unfortunately doesn’t it. It was a little weird. I had no idea because I’m not a gamer. The game scripts are like 250 pages. You need all these alternatives so it took forever. A lot of it is just yelling, ’Look out! Throw that trap, rookie!’ Stuff like that.”
The “Ghostbusters” game is set for release in June on all major platforms.
