Sigourney Weaver Open To Fifth ALIEN Film: "There's More Story To Tell"
Though not confirming that an Alien sequel is actually in the works, actress Sigourney Weaver attended a Q&A where she spoke about her character, Ellen Ripley, and returning to the universe.
At the fifth annual Hero Complex Film Festival, Sigourney Weaver spoke about the Alien franchise and her character, Ellen Ripley. After calling her "an existential hero", the actress alluded to the prospect of another Ripley-centric film. "Had we done a fifth one, I don’t doubt that her humanity would have prevailed," she said, adding, "I do feel like there is more story to tell." Of course, this is by no means a confirmation, but she said she doesn't feel Alien 5 could take place on Earth. "I feel it should take place in the far reaches of the universe where no one in their right mind would go. There are very few filmmakers that I can think of that I would want to entrust this to." Weaver admits that she feels "a longing from fans for the story to be finished. I can imagine a situation where we could at least finish telling her story. I think that would be very satisfying, at least to me. So we’ll just have to see what happens." Are you interested in seeing a new sequel, or has the mixed response to Ridley Scott's prequel Prometheus turned you off?
