Sigourney Weaver has been hinting once again that she could, just might, possibly return to her Lieutenant Ellen Ripley role in the fifth installment of the Alien franchise, likely not to be called 'Alien 5'.
Ripley herself, or at least the 'resurrected' Ripley was last seen approaching Earth after fending off more of the acid-bleeding monsters in 1997's 'Alien Resurrection'. Weaver says, "I would feel very weird if they brought her (Ripley) back and cast someone else."
But according to the IMDB Weaver insists she will only take on projects if the plotline works: "I don't care whether the budget is big or small, or if it's a lead role or not. If the story's good, I'm there."
