Sigourney Weaver still up for making another Alien

Sigourney Weaver has revealed that she would still be interested in reprising her most famous role – alien-zapping heroine Ellen Ripley – for another Alien movie.

The actress last played the character in 1997’s Alien Resurrection , a film that was not held in massively high regard by the critics.

Weaver has spoken intermittently over the years about returning for a fifth Alien film that would return to the planet first glimpsed in 1979’s Alien - though that has yet to come to fruition.

“I could definitely kick that alien's ass again,” Weaver says. “While I can't speak for them, I think for [ 20th Century ] Fox, once you're 60, you're not going to be starring in an action movie.

“I think it's too bad that that's the case. I would have liked to do one last story where we go back to the planet, where Ripley's history is resolved. But I do feel like her story is unfinished.”

Weaver is not a part of Ridley Scott’s Alien spin-off Prometheus , which reportedly returns to the planet with the crashed spaceship featured in the first Alien . Which all but renders Weaver's idea for an Alien 5 obsolete...
