“Avatar,” “Ghostbusters” sequel news from Sigourney Weaver
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: It’s impressive how many potential sequels on fanboy radars revolve around Sigourney Weaver.
Not that Weaver isn’t a major star. She is, and has been for decades. But several franchises Weaver has been involved in – both recently and through the years – are hoping to move forward with new installments, and the actresses revealed a few choice details on them in a good interview with EW.com.
On her “Avatar” character potentially dying in James Cameron’s first film, Weaver said:
Well, I wouldn’t use that word. I wouldn’t use that word — she was changed. You know, it’s science fiction, so we saw something happen to her, and we don’t quite know what it is. She definitely went into the Tree of Souls, right? It’s science fiction. What looks like death, who knows? I think Jim is just starting to write [the sequels] now.
She also touched on the long-rumored “Ghostbusters” sequel and said:
I just saw Bill Murray at the Scream Awards, and he said we’re gonna do it, but I’m not sure. I think no one’s really read a script. But I’ve talked to Ivan Reitman. He definitely wants to do it. There was a script that was being rewritten as of about a year ago. The one thing I said is that I’ll do it if Oscar, my little son, can be a Ghostbuster, and I think he liked that idea.
But as for Ridley Scott’s “Alien” prequel, Weaver admitted:
Oh no, I’m not in any way involved, and I won’t be.
So there you go. Weaver likely will be back for “Avatar,” won’t be back for “Alien,” and knows as much about a new “Ghostbusters” as the rest of us do. Which is to say, Not much.”
