If you're a "Ghostbusters" fan – and really, who isn't? – you're probably semi-intrigued by the upcoming Atari game. They're bringing back the entire original cast for this video game incarnation…with one exception.
The boys will be there, including Rick Moranis, but the leading lady won't be around. According to Variety, Sigourney Weaver initially declined to be part of the production, which means the designers simply had to write the character of Dana Barrett out of the game script. But because we still need a leading lady, they created another role: Dr. Ilyssa Selwyn, curator of the World of Gozer exhibit at the Natural History Museum, and the woman's name should give you a hint as to who will handle the voice acting… It's the lovely lady in the picture here; Alyssa Milano. Still gorgeous at 36, she should make for a worthy addition to the game, which is scheduled to release on June 16. We have high hopes for the final product, simply because we know the original creators are definitely part of the development process. Provided they keep the ol' original flair from the movie and the gameplay itself is fluid and entertaining, we should get something that's well worth our time. We've seen some promising preview videos and the information we've received thus far have made us smile. Just don't let us down!
It's a bit of a letdown that we won't have the major character of Dana Barrett, but that's okay. Just one question, though- will the doctor look like Alyssa Milano? Because, you know…we kinda want to know…
Milano is a good actress in my opinion, she'll play the position fine.
By the looks of it she can play any position fine…
I would have liked to see everyone come back. But if you have to replace Sigourney, I have no complaints with Alyssa Milano.
Embrace of the Vampire FTW
LOL. When I was younger I watched that movie a lot!
Thank God for the pause and slo mo buttons on my DVD player. 😉
I have always liked Milano; not to mention he surname is the name of my city of birth in Italy; and we are both Italian. Now that is a women I could have settled down with 🙂

Ilyssa doesn't look like Alyssa exactly but you can see the resemblance in a way. June 16 needs to hurry. Not just for this game, but for the Blu-Ray releases of the movies as well.
I'm fine with it. I've always really liked Alyssa since I was a kid watching who's the boss. Beautiful woman and decent actress. Good Choice.
i prefered Sigourney…..
My GOD the things I would do to Alyssa Milano. The thoughts even make ME ashamed, and I don't blush easily.
This game needs to be released with support for up to 4 local players!
Alyssa Milano is hot.
Man i love those puppies….
So no Barrett … but we do get … SAMANTHER! I wonder if Moner, Angeler, Johnatan, and Mrs. R will do cameos! At least Annie Potts is in .. she IS in, isn't she?
