LOS ANGELES, June 3 (UPI) -- Sigourney Weaver is interested in a new Alien sequel.
The 64-year-old actress starred as Ellen Ripley in the four Alien films: Alien (1979), Aliens (1986), Alien 3 (1992) and Alien Resurrection (1997). Alien and Aliens were honored at the Hero Complex Film Festival over the weekend, and Weaver expressed her enthusiasm for a new movie at the event.
"There's more story to tell," she said of potential sequel. "But I don't know how to do that. I don't think Alien belongs on Earth popping out of a haystack, which is where I was afraid it was going to go."
"I feel it should take place in the far reaches of the universe where no one in their right mind would go," she offered. "There are very few filmmakers that I can think of that I would want to entrust this to. But I can think of a couple."
The actress went on to acknowledge the "longing in certain groups of fans" for Ripley's story to be continued.
"I can imagine a situation where we could at least finish telling her story," she revealed. "I think that would be very satisfying at least to me -- although I haven't done anything about it; but I can understand why that could happen and I certainly know young filmmakers who are interested in doing that. So we'll just have to see what happens."
