You gotta love celebrities and their notoriously loose lips. During a press junket for James Cameron’s risky cinematic venture “Avatar,” actress Sigourney Weaver was forced to deal with a number of questions regarding “Ghostbusters 3,” a movie which will probably be a lot more fun in our heads than it will on the big screen. Over the course of the interview, she revealed that her son from the movie may, in fact, become a card-carrying member of the Ghostbusters team, a plot detail which actually doesn’t sound too incredibly awful. However, the most intriguing aspect of this Q&A session is, perhaps, something I’m sure scribes Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky would like to keep under their respective hats. Whether or not there’s any validity to her words remains to be seen. Regardless, it gives me something to write about.
Here’s the quote:
I’m afraid to say it [Ghostbuster 3] is happening, I hope people are excited about that. I don’t know if I’m going to be in it, I have had a couple of calls asking ‘would you read the script.’ I know that my little son Oscar, who was kidnapped from me, I think he has grown up to be a ghostbuster. I might be in it; I see nothing wrong with being in it, although I don’t think I will have a big part. I think Bill Murray has a little more to do with it – he’s a ghost.
Dr. Peter Venkman? A ghost? Could be interesting, I suppose. Then again, I’d actually like to see something a little more straightforward from “Ghostbusters 3.” There’s nothing wrong with some old-school supernatural ass-kickery, is there?
