Louis and the muggers...

Or was it scrapped before cameras started rolling? If it was filmed, hopefully it'll be on the new release.
If there are set pictures (like the ones you posted) that's pretty much the proof that it was filmed. Otherwise it would just be storyboarded. They're not going to go through all the effort of lighting the scene and then just go "nah, everyone go home for the day."

The mugging scene was indeed filmed, and Rick Moranis was even wired up to assist post production special effects.

Unfortunately the scene was cut very early in post production for pacing reasons and the visual effects required to complete the scene were never made.

Sadly, to the best of my knowledge, no rough footage has ever seen the light of day since post production.

What I wouldn't give to see an uncut version of the film - i.e. as written per the final draft.

Whoa... is this the actual Don Shay commenting in this thread?

Author of Making Ghostbusters? And two really in-depth articles for Cinefex on the GB films?

Awesome.
