Sad news. An icon in the movie industry. RIP, Harold Ramis.

Edited to add Ramis quote: "Sean, you're my same height, that is neat."

I said the same thing about GB 3 when I first read that. Now it will either never happen or it may finally be a go.

Ramis was the driving force in getting the project going. It was suppoused to be a passing of the torch movie to the next generation Then came the reboot rumors.

Who knows where it is going to go now.

He played a big part in creating Groundhog Day, which is one of my all-time favorite movies.

Very sad. He was highly involved (writer/director/actor) in so many classic comedies from the 80s.

Caddyshack
Animal House
Vacation
Ghostbusters
Stripes
Meatballs
Back to School
Groundhog Day

What a loss

This is very sad news. Groundhog Day is one of my favorite movies of all time. Any time it comes on TV I go into a vegetative trance, like Elaine's desperado guy from Seinfeld.

If anyone hasn't seen a movie on this list, take the time to do so. They're all "classics"
