Rick Moranis did not do the voice overs of Louis Tully for “Ghostbusters – The Video Game”, but Rick has agreed to reprise his role for “Ghostbusters 3” live action film. Harold Ramis confirmed the news that Rick finally agreed to come back to Ghostbusters.
Although he said the original cast is coming back, there is still no word on whether or not Sigourney Weaver is returning because this article said nothing about her.
I’m sure we’ll hear from Sigourney soon on whether she wants in or not.

More news on actress Sigourney Weaver. First we have her giving Ghostbusters fans a hint that she maybe in “Ghostbusters 3”, she confirmed she is in talks with Bill Murray for the next installment. She also hinted that Dana’s son Oscar could be the next Ghostbuster.

Sigourney is also in negotiations with Ridley Scott into having Ripley, the character from the Alien series get her own spinoff movie without the aliens. It’ll be a whole new sci fi adventure for Ripley getting her own film.

Very nice! I’m glad to see “Ghostbusters 3” moving forward and glad to hear Ripley possibly coming back to the big screen with Ridley directing again. Ripley getting her own movie sounds fuckin’ cool, bring it on Ridley! 🙂
Several months back “Alien” and “Ghostbusters” star Sigourney Weaver denied reports of her wanting to do an “Alien 5” because of the new “Alien vs. Predator” franchise. After thinking about it, she says she wants to do one last “Alien” movie reprising the role of Ripley. What made her change her mind? Simply because of the successful returns of Rocky, Rambo, and Indiana Jones that just made comebacks to the big screen. She said that Sylvester Stallone and Harrison Ford inspired her to do another “Alien”.
She’ll agree to do an “Alien 5” if Ridley Scott can direct it or find a director similar to Ridley Scott and if the story is right.

I’ve said it once and will say it again, they should really have Sigourney as Ripley in “Alien vs. Predator 3”, think about it.
While there is a “Ghostbusters” video game in the works right now, the original cast is coming back except for two important ones. Rick Moranis refuses to reprise his role as Louis Tully for the voice overs of the video game and Sigourney Weaver refuses to come back as Dana Barrett. Why is Rick Moranis refusing? Simply because he retired from the film industry and entertainment business. Rick felt that he made too much money from the “Honey I Shrunk the Kids” sequels that he no longer needs to work.
Sigourney Weaver herself hasn’t yet spoken out on why she isn’t doing the highly anticipated video game. “Ghostbusters: The Video Game” will be released for all game systems: Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and the Nintendo Wii.

This really blows that Rick and Sigourney won’t be in it. Shame on them since Louis and Dana were the most important part of the films. Sounds like Louis and Dana will be voiced by different actors now ’cause the game still must go on. At least Bill, Dan, Harold and Ernie are still doing it though.
I definitely will buy the video game when it comes out. It’s one of the main reasons I bought a PS3 for is for this game here. I have a feeling that “Ghostbusters: The Video Game” will take over the spotlight on “Grand Theft Auto IV”.
Sigourney Weaver spoke to MTV Movies blog and confirmed that Ridley Scott was interested in doing an “Alien 5” to direct the Alien series again, but Fox killed that opportunity because of a new “Alien Vs. Predator” series. So don’t ever expect another Alien movie coming with Weaver starring as Ripley again because I don’t see it ever happening. Weaver wants “Ripley to rest”.

We may not see Ripley in “Alien 5” but could Ripley have a small role in “Alien Vs. Predator 3”? Sounds good to me. I doubt it will happen though.
