Maybe Sigourney Weaver has just grown bored with humans.

Combine her film history with aliens, blue people, and apparitions with the fact that she just signed on to play a vampire queen in Amy Heckerling's horror-comedy 'Vamps', and it appears Weaver might prefer the company of the otherworldly instead.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, 'Vamps' will star Alicia Silverstone and Krysten Ritter ('She's Out of My League') as two young, club-hopping vampires whose romantic lives threaten to impinge on their immortality.

Weaver will play Ciccerus, a bloodthirsty vampire who made the young ladies creatures of the night. Maybe Sigourney Weaver has just grown bored with humans.

Combine her film history with aliens, blue people and apparitions with the fact that she just signed on to play a vampire queen in Amy Heckerling's horror-comedy 'Vamps,' and it appears Weaver might prefer the company of the otherworldly instead.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, 'Vamps' will star Alicia Silverstone ('Clueless') and Krysten Ritter ('She's Out of My League') as two young, club-hopping vampires whose romantic lives threaten to impinge on their immortality.

Weaver will play Ciccerus, a bloodthirsty vampire who made the young ladies creatures of the night.

Coming off the unequaled success of 'Avatar' and the recent 'Ghostbusters 3' rumors, this news tops off a banner couple of months for Weaver, particularly among sci-fi-types already loyal to her for her seminal turns as kick-ass Ellen Ripley in the 'Alien' movies. She even took time in December to poke fun at the character, starring in a 'Saturday Night Live' skit in which Ripley (and James Cameron) take on the 'Laser Cats.'

'Vamps' begins shooting this April, and you can see Weaver's 'SNL' performance in a replay this Saturday.
