Weaver Returning As Ripley For A Fifth Alien?

Will Ripley really be back to battle the Aliens again? Will it be Sigourney Weaver with or without hair as Ripley? Will Winona Ryder be back as a machine?

Let’s hope the first two happen at least!

Bloody-Disgusting found out some interesting news when it comes to the top star of the Alien franchise and her need for more films in the series.

While browsing through UK website OK! Magazine, I stumbled across a piece of news that raised one of my eyebrows – Sigouney Weaver is still very much interested in returning as ALIEN heroine Ellen Ripley if 20th Century Fox would ever consider doing an Alien 5.

“I would definitely do another if I had a director like Ridley Scott and we had a good idea,” she says of the classic sci-fi movie franchise. “Ridley is enthusiastic about it.”

Weaver – who first played Ripley in 1979 at the age of 30 before going on to star in ALIENS (1986), ALIEN 3 (1992) and ALIEN: RESURRECTION (1997) – says if sixtysomethings such as Harrison Ford (INDIANA JONES) and Sylvester Stallone (ROCKY, RAMBO) can do it, so can she.
