Ri­p­ley’s got more game to play

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - NEWS - dclarke@irish­times.com

Sigour­ney Weaver has ex­cited the ner­do­sphere by ad­mit­ting that she would be open to the no­tion of repris­ing the role of Ri­p­ley, hero­ine of the Alien films.

“There’s more story to tell, but I don’t know how to do that,” she told an au­di­ence at the Hero Com­plex Film Fes­ti­val in LA. “I don’t think Alien be­longs on Earth pop­ping out of a haystack – which is where I was afraid it was go­ing to go. It should take place in the far reaches of the uni­verse where no one in their right mind would go. There are few film-mak­ers I can think of that I would want to en­trust this to.”
