Sigourney Weaver Signed on for ‘Buried’ Director’s ‘Red Lights’

The buzz behind Rodrigo Cortés’ Buried is off the charts, especially with Lionsgate getting behind the “buried alive” thriller arriving in theaters September/October. Off the Sundance Film Festival success, it’s no shock that Cortés is moving quickly on his next feature film, Red Lights, which he told us is “about how the brain does not give a true picture of reality.” Bloody Disgusting got the exclusive tip today (and confirmed) that Sigourney Weaver has been secured for the role of “Margaret Matheson” in the film that follows a para-psychologist who attempts to debunk a very reputable psychic who has just returned to the limelight after 30 years. Weaver was most recently seen in James Cameron’s Avatar after starring in such classics as Ghostbusters and the early Alien films.Sigourney Weaver
