Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Time Out -

Hol­ly­wood star Ryan Reynolds (right) says he wants to re­make Alien with him­self in Sigour­ney Weaver’s role.

The 40-year-old in­sists his new sci-fi saga, Life, isn’t very sim­i­lar to Ri­d­ley Scott’s fa­mous fran­chise apart from the sub­ject mat­ter, but he could see him­self por­tray­ing the ac­tor’s iconic char­ac­ter Ellen Ri­p­ley, re­ported Con­tact­mu­sic. “I think I’d make a good Ri­p­ley. I’m tall, I could maybe work one of those me­chan­i­cal crane ro­bots if she showed me... This isn’t ex­tra-ter­res­trial rav­en­ous xenomorph boards space­ships and slaugh­ters ev­ery­one. Which I’m all for. Here, this crea­ture is try­ing to sur­vive. It’s en­coun­tered the scari­est alien of all — hu­mans, and is re­act­ing to that... And this guy can de­fend him­self.”
