Sigourney Weaver & ALIEN Cast-Mates Return To Provide Voices For Video Game

Weaver will once again play Ellen Ripley (well, voice her anyway) in the upcoming video game, Alien: Isolation. Plus, her former Nostromo crew-mates Tom Skerritt, Yaphet Kotto, Harry Dean-Stanton and Veronica Cartwright will be joining her.



In Sega's upcoming Alien: Isolation video game, we will follow Ellen Ripley's daughter Amanda's search for her mother, fifteen years after the events of Ridley Scott's original Alien. Now it's been announced that Sigourney Weaver will return to provide the voice for Ripley in the pre-order DLC "Last Survivor", and she'll be joined by Harry Dean-Stanton (Brett)Tom Skerritt (Dallas), Yaphet Kotto (Parker), and Veronica Cartwright (Lambert). Although Ash will feature (as you can see by the above pic) Ian Holm unfortunately won't be returning. Here's the full press release and DLC trailer:

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Sigourney Weaver and the cast of "Alien" are returning to the starship Nostromo. The actress who portrayed unflappable officer Ellen Ripley in the "Alien" film franchise is reprising her role in an upcoming video game set after the events of the original 1979 film. Weaver and several cast members from filmmaker Ridley Scott's sci-fi horror film recorded new dialogue and will have their likeness appear in bonus levels of "Alien: Isolation." Other cast members returning to their roles as Nostromo crew members include Tom Skerritt, Yaphet Kotto and Veronica Cartwright. The central story of "Isolation" centers on Ripley's daughter Amanda. She was briefly mentioned in a scene from the 1986 sequel "Aliens." The game marks the first time Weaver has reprised the role since the 1997 sequel "Alien Resurrection."


Alien: Isolation will be available from October 7th on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
