It’s been quite a while since there has been any serious talk of a new Alien movie (put the Alien vs. Predator films aside). The true fan base would love to see Sigourney Weaver return in her iconic role of Ripley, wouldn’t we?
Weaver told OK Magazine that if she had a director like Ridley Scott (Ridley, or is just ‘like’ Ridley enough?) she would definitely do another. Regarding her age, Weaver told the mag, “I’m not going to start apologizing. Sophia Loren is my inspiration. She is a woman who has never apologized for being herself.”
For those of you who saw WALL-E and heard a familiar voice over the PA on the space ship, that was Weaver. Personally, if Ridley were to take the reigns of the franchise he started, I’d have a hard time not being excited.
