Weaver leaves Ghostbusters 3 and talks Alien prequel

SigourneyWeaver.jpgOne person who we haven't heard much from on Ghostbusters 3, is Sigourney Weaver. The other three main actors and the director are waiting on a finished script they like.

But Weaver sounds like she isn't that fussed for appearing in it at all. She also talked about the planned Alien prequel.

The latest Ghostbusters 3 update had everyone waiting on a script, which is taking quite a while to finish. Then the main actors and director will decide for sure what they are doing. Sigourney Weaver hasn't had much to say on the third Ghostbusters film, until now that it.

ScifiSquad, through Cinematical, asked her what she though the chances were of her character and Venkman, still being together were.

Probably non-existent. Yeah, I'm pretty sure. I think they're still writing it, but (laughs) I'd be very surprised ... You never know. I just did a benefit with Bill (Murray), and we love working together, but I think they're trying to create something new completely with the Ghostbusters, although I know Bill is in it. I hope my little son Oscar (from Ghostbusters II) is a Ghostbuster!

I guess there is every chance that Oscar could be one of the new Ghostbusters. But asked if she planned on appearing in it.

No, I don't expect to have anything to do with it, although I wish them well.

So it looks like at least one of the original stars might not be coming back. I suppose the majority of people will want Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray and Harold Ramis back. But who knows, if her character is in the script, and it's a good one... She was also asked about the recently announced Alien prequel, and the chances of her being in any future Alien film.

Well, I don't think that Ripley could appear in an Alien prequel because she doesn't have any access to the creature until the first Alien. But Ridley (Scott) is producing it and that makes me happy. I wasn't thrilled with the whole Alien Vs. Predator thing. I never saw them, but one of the reasons I died in (Alien) 3 was to not have anything to do with those (laughs). Just because, you know, I think it just seemed so economically motivated somehow. I feel we did four good movies, and I'm content with that. I hope if they do something new, they will encompass the idea of where the alien first came from, because I think that's an interesting idea -- to find out what happened and "how did it get to us?".

She really doesn't like those Alien Vs Predator films! I hope they have got it right with the prequel. It certainly makes more sense than going forward in the timeline. But as she says, she can't really appear in it. I'm quite interested in a film that goes back to the origin of the Alien, especially one that involves Ridley Scott.

Would you like Sigourney Weaver to appear in Ghostbusters 3? Do you think Oscar will be one of the new breed of Ghostbusters?
