Sigourney Weaver Hopes New 'Alien' Will Give Ripley a 'Proper Finish'
Now that Neill Blomkamp has officially been hired to direct a new movie set within the Alien universe, fans are anxious to know what we can expect. Of course, Blomkamp's initial posting of concept art gives us some idea of what we'll see, including the return of Sigourney Weaver as Ripley, but we're still not clear on the story. And while Blomkamp and Weaver have been doing the publicity rounds for Chappie, they haven't been forthcoming with many new details. However, Weaver did make a few remarks about giving the Alien series and her character Riply a "proper finish," which seems to imply that this could be the end.
As you can see, Blomkamp also makes it a point to say his film will share DNA with Alien and Aliens, and that his film would come next. That's more than an implication that they're ignoring anything that happened in Alien 3 or Alien Resurrection, and really just a flat out statement that those movies don't matter in his mythology. Obviously, it's early days on the project, so Blomkamp is likely still following details, but it certainly sounds like Weaver will be leading the film again, and this could be the one fans have been waiting for. And we're still hoping Louis C.K. gets to die a horrible death in the movie as well. Thoughts?
