Is this a newly discovered image of a never-before-seen Ghostbusters II deleted scene?

Ok, so Haynes have just released a new Ecto-1 manuel and, while we’re still waiting for ours to arrive, some of our pals over on Ghostbusters Fans UK have clearly received theirs and, in among the Ecto-1 and Ghostbusters equipment awesomeness, one fan has seemingly stumbled upon one of the holy grails of the Ghostbusters universe.

Ok, so, in Ghostbusters II you’ll recall that Ray got possessed by Vigo while he and the others were examining the painting at the Museaum:

This was, in the original script, going to lead to Ray driving the Ecto-1 dangerously while trying to kill civilians on the street.

Some of the scene was reportedly filmed, however there’s very little proof of this except a few brief clips of the Ecto-1 driving fast that ended up in the movie’s montage scene.

The scripted scene even made it into the comic book adaptation, The Real Ghostbusters in Ghostbusters II:

A fan even went so far as to put together this clip using scenes from Ghostbusters II and the comic:

So you get the idea of how the scene was meant to play out.

However, getting back to the Haynes manual we mentioned at the start, the image below was discovered in the book and it seems to be the general consensus that the image shows Winton leaning in and pulling the steering wheel off Ray… and therefore may actually be an image of the deleted possessed driving scene.

We would tend to agree… what do you all think? Is this a glimpse of the scene that we all know was filmed but have never seen?

Let us know what you guys think.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
