Sigourney Weaver says no to Alien 5
It's that time again readers, time for Sigourney Weaver to either opt in or out of Alien 5. Last time it was a kind of out, but there was a possibility of a new story for Ripley.
This time it's out, but it still kind of links in to what she said last time we heard about it. Kind of consistent atleast. I'm already confused.
Alien 5 is beginning to remind me of Ross and Rachel in Friends. On again, off again, "we're on a break". Every so often we hear that Sigourney Weaver might be interested, and then the next we hear it's finished.
Last time Sigourney Weaver spoke about Alien 5, she said she has spoken to Ridley Scott about it. But after the Alien vs Predator films, she thought maybe an Alien film would have to take place with no Alien at all. A fresh start with Ripley in another science fiction story she said. Now it sounds like it might not be happening at all. She was talking on Reelz Channel, through Cinema Blend:
I think it's more satisfying to create something new. I love the Alien films, but I think enough already.
I suppose that could mean just no more Alien films, or Ripley at all. Or does it mean that she still wants to create a new story with Ripley in it? Not entirely sure. I don't think a film with Ripley and no Alien would interest me. I beginning to think I'm with her, if what she means is that the Alien series should be left alone. What about you, do you still want Alien 5? Do you wish they would just make up their minds already?
