WEAVER UP FOR RIPLEY REPRISE?
Sigourney Weaver talked to the Chicago Sun-Times about whether or not she'd be up for playing Ripley again in another Alien film and what storyline she's not interested in.
As for any rumors of another 'Alien' film, she admits, '[Director] Ridley Scott and I have talked about it a couple of times. He has some ideas. If we developed a good script, I'd love to play Ripley again. I've always felt so grateful to Ridley Scott because he gave me my first job. In fact, the first few weeks of 'Alien,' I was so green that Ridley would say, 'Don't look at the camera.' And I'd say, 'How can I not look at it. It's right in front of my face all the time!' '
Ask her about plot ideas for a new 'Aliens,' Weaver says, 'The only thing I'm not interested in is going to earth. I saw that 'Star Trek' movie where they went to Earth and ... yawn. I think it's more fun to go to a foreign planet--especially now. Who wants to come to Earth now? Let's go far, far away! Fantasy is what we need!'
Meanwhile, Filmjerk reports that the original Alien will be rereleased on October 31, although this is not the 25th Anniversary version which is scheduled for May 25, 2004.
