Sigourney Weaver Talks ‘Ghostbusters 3’ & Possibly ‘Alien 5’
The Movie God   |  @   |  

MTV was able to speak to Sigourney Weaver, who shared some interesting thoughts in regards to Ghostbusters 3 and maybe even an Alien 5!

Obviously, neither of these are any form of a reality yet, with your best bet coming by way of the new Ghostbusters script that’s being written, but that’s about it. Either way, they’re still fun to ponder.

With Ghostbusters, Weaver didn’t say too much, but she did say that she was aware of all of the talking that’s being done and that she’s even supposed to talk to Bill Murray next week! Fantastic. She also made sure she shared what she thought should happen, even if she wasn’t in the movie…

I would hope that my little Oscar would be one of the Ghostbusters even if I’m not in it!

When asked about the Alien franchise, how it’s been completely violated and destroyed and what more there could be, Weaver had some interesting thoughts to share with MTV.

There’s definitely unchartered territory for Ripley. Whether there’s unchartered territory for a creature who’s become somewhat debased by this computer generated thing. I haven’t seen [Alien Vs. Predator] but I just think if you overexpose the creature, that’s a mistake.


If you’ll recall a while back, Weaver was quoted saying that she and Ridley Scott had spoken of doing another movie, but then the AvP‘s came along and made that impossible. So is it now possible that maybe they’re figuring out a way to go and re-visit the character and world without going back to something that’s been made into a joke?

Weaver said…

We’d have to go back to the drawing board on [the alien]. Ridley said that right away when we first talked about [a fifth film].

What we’re interested in is taking the character of Ripley and seeing what other science fiction story we can tell about someone who has lived several lives.

Well, well, well, now isn’t that something?

Imagine if you will, a whole new science fiction adventure by Ridley Scott. Brand new horrifying creatures and places. No CGI within light years. And one of the most iconic heroins in cinematic science fiction history in the middle of it all.

By all means, tell me more. I’m listening.


  1. I actually feel better about the Ghostbusters video game than I do a third film, as it still has the 80’s feel and all the original cast doing the voiceovers. Not sure what the rule is on linking, but I’ll just say its on Game Trailers in HD. Worth a look if you are ‘Busters fan.

  3. I have to say, the Alien series has been sort of degraded over the years, but completely ignoring the parodied connotations that now tag along with the name ‘Alien’, Alien 5 would be something I would definalty look forward to! I’m such a fan. It’s crazy.
