Charmed Star Replaces Weaver for Ghostbusters Game

Alyssa Milano has stepped into the female lead for GHOSTBUSTERS: THE VIDEO GAME, reports VARIETY. Sigourney Weaver, who played Dana Barrett in the two GHOSTBUSTER films, declined to participate in the game, which was written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis.

Milano, the star of CHARMED, was flattered to be asked to join the franchise. For the game, the Barrett role was re-written as Dr. Ilyssa Selwyn, the genius guest curator at the Natural History Museum's new "World of Gozer" exhibit.

The game follows Ghostbuster recruits as they battle classic franchise monsters like the giant Stay Puft Marshmellow Man and Gozer, the god of destruction.

Atari will publish the game on June 16th for PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS, Wii and PC.

Aykroyd, Ramis, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson and Annie Potts are all reprising their roles. Rick Moranis, who retired from acting in 2003 after doing voice work on BROTHER BEAR, also declined an invitation to participate.
