Sigourney Weaver may have started warming to the idea of more Ghostbustersback in December, but that doesn't include lending her voice for the upcoming video game. She's out, and in her absence, Atari isn't going with just anyone. They're going with the daughter of a boss who has a little witchy charm.

That's right -- Variety reports that Alyssa Milano is lending her voice in the upcoming Ghostbusters: The Video Game. Luckily, it won't be as Weaver's Dana Barrett, which would probably cause an uproar. Instead, her character is "Dr. Ilyssa Selwyn, the brainy guest curator of a 'World of Gozer' exhibit at the Natural History Museum." It seems that Milano was approached once Weaver declined to come back to the fold. I guess they were a fan of her voice in Dinotopia and Jimmy Neutron.

It sucks that Weaver isn't involved in this latest Ghostbusters incarnation, but at least they did a heck of a job recruiting the rest of the classic cast. Of course, Murray, Aykroyd, Ramis, and Hudson are in there, but there's also Annie Potts' Janine, William Atherton's Walter, and Slavitza Jonan as Gozer. I just wish they could've brought Rick Moranis back to play. He might be largely absent from Hollywood for the past decade, but he did lend his voice for the Brother Bear flicks in 2003 and 2006.

Ah well. Back to the topic at hand: Think Alyssa can keep up with the big ghost-busting boys?
