Aliens, Ghostbusters and Sigourney Weaver

ENTERTAINMENT - Rumours of a fifth Aliens movie and a third Ghostbusters movie won't die, and Sigourney Weaver says she's ready to reprise her role in both.

The 1979 sci-fi thriller Alien made Sigourney Weaver a star and her character Ripley an action hero. Then there's her role as the hot femme in Ghostbusters (1984) and mother in Ghostbusters II (1989), both of which garnered rave reviews.

Weaver is currently part of James Cameron's sci-fi epic "Avatar", one of the most hotly anticipated films of 2009 – and to which she's sworn to secrecy about, but there's also serious talk of Ghostbusters 3 and Alien 5. Other actors (Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Rick Moranis, Annie Potts, and Ernie Hudson) from Ghostbusters all say they are interested in coming back for more foray as ghost exterminators.

"I love science fiction. I love the character of Ripley," says Weaver. "I miss Ripley. She was really interesting, and I'd love to play her as an older Ripley."

And with respect to playing Bill Murray's love interest in Ghostbusters: "I heard he was going to do it and the last time I talked to him he hadn't found out about it. I'm actually supposed to give him a script next week. For a different movie, a love story with me called Something Old, Something New, and that would be fun. I'll find out if he's doing [Ghostbusters]."
