Sigourney Weaver to join new sci-fi comedy?
The flick also stars Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Seth Rogen and follows the story of two science fiction fans who come across an escaped Alien near Area 51 and help it in its bid for freedom.
Pegg and Frost are to play the two buddies, while Rogen will lend his vocal talents to the alien character.
Jason Frost also features as a government agent named Lorenzo Zoil.
Sigourney, perhaps best known for her roles in the four Alien films, is keeping details of her part under wraps.
The movie will be directed by Greg Mottola, who has previously helmed Superbad and Adventureland, while in addition to starring in the project, Frost and Pegg also penned the script.
Weaver can soon be seen starring in James Cameron's Avatar alongside Sam Worthington, Michelle Rodriguez and Zoe Saldana.
