When its a slow day, you'll see a barrage of news-items used as filler. You know until the real shit gets here. We're talking non-news tidbits and what not.
Latest example comes from a Channel 4 chat with Sigourney Weaver. With Avatar opening next weekend, you'll be seeing tons of interviews with her and it was inevitable that someone would bring up Ghostbusters 3. If you think Alien 5 won't be addressed give it time, boys and girls.
As Weaver revealed to the UK news-outlet:
"I’m afraid to say it [Ghostbusters 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."
Now the notion of a grown-up Oscar joining the team has been theorized in the past, but never confirmed or denied. It was just fan speculation. But the latter about Peter Venkman being a ghost? That has been out in the open for.ever! I remember interviews with Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis where they said that having him "cross the streams" was a way to get Murray interested.
We've heard all of this before. Nothing to see here, folks.
