Sigourney Weaver Up for More Alien Movies!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Sigourney Weaver clearly relishes the fact that her Ellen Ripley character from the Alien movies is one of the most awesome 13 Kick-Ass Female Movie Characters. So much so, that during a gathering celebrating the Alien movies this weekend at the Hero Complex film festival, she let it be known that she would not be opposed to returning to the role once again.

"There's more story to tell. I feel there’s a longing in certain groups of fans when I meet them for the story to be finished because we really left it up in the air and I feel a bit badly about that because I was part of that decision making process,” Weaver said of how the story left off in Alien: Resurrection.

“I didn’t want to make four and five in a bundle. I think it’s hard to make these films all in a big lump. You need time to sort of let things resonate so I can imagine a situation where we could at least finish telling her story."

There is no reason that she couldn’t return to the role, of course after she wraps up her part in those Avatar sequels. “I feel it should take place in the far reaches of the universe where no one in their right mind would go," Weaver admitted.

But, who would she want to be at the helm?

Weaver reported that there are "very few filmmakers that I can think of that I would want to entrust this to. I certainly know young filmmakers who are interested in doing it. I haven't done anything about it, but it could happen, and I think that would be very satisfying, at least to me."

And to us as well!
