Sigourney Weaver reveals Ghostbusters III spoilers

Sigourney Weaver, who played Dana Barrett in the original Ghostbusters and its sequel, revealed to us that she is being sent the script for a proposed third installment and offered up a few spoilery details about the film's story, though she hasn't made up her mind yet whether to take part.

Speaking to us at the press junket in London for her upcoming sci-fi movie Avatar, Weaver said: "They've talked to me about it. I guess they're sending me the script when it's finished."

As for the story? "I know that my little son Oscar has now grown up, and he's going to be a Ghostbuster. So I'm very proud of him. I don't know anything about it other than that, you know?"

In 1989's Ghostbusters II, Weaver's character, Dana, has a baby son named Oscar, who figures prominently in the story (he's stolen by the bad guy).

What about Dana's paramour, Peter Venkman, played by Bill Murray, and the other original Ghostbusters, played by Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson? "I hope the guys are in it," Weaver said. "They work so wonderfully together. And it'd be nice to introduce a whole new generation to Ghostbusters."

There's also a report that Murray may in fact be a ghost himself? "I don't know," she said. "I don't know what he's going to be. Probably Slimer 2. I don't know."
