Ghostbusters' Ernie Hudson is adamant there can never be another movie installment in the franchise following the death of star/writer Harold Ramis.

Fans of the 1984 movie and its 1989 sequel were plunged into mourning on Monday (24Feb14) after it was announced that Ramis had lost his battle with a rare blood disease at the age of 69.

The Ghostbusters team, which also included Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd, had spent years trying get a third film off the ground, and Hudson is now convinced plans for a new movie will have to be scrapped.

He tells Tmz.com, "Harold was the glue - there wouldn't be a Ghostbusters without Harold... There can't be another Ghostbusters without Harold... My fear was always that something would happen before we all got together (again)."

Hudson also pays tribute to his late friend, who he credits with handing him his Hollywood career by hiring him for Ghostbusters.

He adds, "He was a great guy and it's a great loss. (He was a) great director, great producer, writer, actor - I mean he did it all...

"I knew I probably wouldn't be in the business had I not had the chance to work with Harold at the start of my career. He taught me a lot... He was a good friend, he'll be missed."
