Every Which Way But Sigourney

Christ on a fucking cracker, I can't keep this straight anymore. One day it's yes, the next no, tomorrow somebody will be telling me that they've renamed Ghostbusters 3, "Ghostlady: The Dana Barrett Story" and it will be all about her character. Via here, via Cinematical, from the lips of the lady legend herself:

"Mike Moody: The rumor is you might revisit one of your famous comedy roles, Dana Barrett, in another Ghostbusters sequel. Where do you think Dana and Peter Venkman's relationship will be when the new movie picks up?

Sigourney Weaver: Probably non-existent.

MM: Really?

SW: Yeah, I'm pretty sure. I think they're still writing it, but (laughs) I'd be very surprised ... You never know. I just did a benefit with Bill (Murray), and we love working together, but I think they're trying to create something new completely with the Ghostbusters, although I know Bill is in it. I hope my little son Oscar (from Ghostbusters II) is a Ghostbuster!

MM: So, you won't be appearing in the movie?

SW: No, I don't expect to have anything to do with it, although I wish them well."

Sigh. SIGH. Although I do like the idea that one of the new Ghostbusters could be Oscar. I caught some of Ghostbusters 2 on TV during that Bill Murray marathon on AMC this weekend and there was Oscar, flopping around in the arms of that flop-headed dorkus Vigo and getting squished between Siggy and Bill when they kiss at the end. He was a cutie.

Anyway, Siggy also chats up what she thinks about a fifth Alien film in that interview, so check it.
