Ryan thinks he’d make a good Ellen Ripley
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.”
