Sigourney Weaver has been set to star in You Again for Disney and is in talks to join the Greg Mottola-directed sci-fi comedy Paul for Universal and Working Title, Variety reported.

Weaver will first shoot Paul, a comedy about two sci-fi fans (Simon Pegg, Nick Frost) who come across an escaped alien (voiced by Seth Rogen) near Area 51 and try to help it escape. Weaver, who starred in four Alien films, is keeping the role she plays under wraps, the trade paper reported.

Weaver will then star in You Again with Kristen Bell for director Andy Fickman (Race to Witch Mountain). Bell will play a young woman who returns home for her brother's wedding and is horrified to find he's marrying her high-school nemesis. Weaver will play the bride's filthy-rich aunt.

Weaver will next appear in her Aliens director James Cameron's Avatar for 20th Century Fox.
