Sigourney Weaver - Sigourney Weaver Too Old For Alien Movie?
Sigourney Weaver would do another 'Alien' movie but thinks producers believe that, at 60, she is too old.
Sigourney Weaver would do another 'Alien' movie.
The 60-year-old actress says she would be happy to reprise her role as Ellen Ripley but admits Fox - the studio behind the 'Alien' franchise - might not be so keen because of her age.
She told moviefone: "I could definitely kick that alien's ass again. While I can't speak for them, I think for Fox, once you're 60, you're not going to be starring in an action movie.
"I think it's too bad that that's the case. I would have liked to do one last story where we go back to the planet, where Ripley's history is resolved. But I do feel like her story is unfinished."
Although Sigourney - whose character was killed off in 'Alien 3', but was brought back to life for the fourth instalment in 'Alien Resurrection' - is not in the 'Alien' prequel, she recently revealed she is "glad" Ridley Scott is directing it.
She said: "I'm glad it's in his hands. I always said if you're going to do another one, go back to the planet where they came from so I certainly think it's a great idea.
"I'll be excited to see it. I think he's an amazing director and I always felt very incomplete because we didn't know where they came from and so we're going to find out I hope."
