Sigourney Weaver has been discussing her contribution to the Alien franchise in an interview with The LA Times , in which she touches on the possibility of a fifth film in the series.
When discussing the character of Ripley, Weaver mentioned that she felt the character's arc was incomplete, leading on to the possibility of a potential fifth film.
"Had we done a fifth one, I don’t doubt that her humanity would have prevailed," mused Weaver. "I do feel like there is more story to tell."
"A lot of corporations are still characterised by the same kind of greed [ as Weyland-Yutani ]," she continued. "It’s an idea that’s, unfortunately, very alive in our world."
"I feel a longing from fans for the story to be finished," concludes Weaver. "I could imagine a situation where we finish telling the story."
