Moviehole had the chance to talk to Sigourney Weaver recently – for her new pic “The Tale of Desperaux”- and couldn’t let her go without asking what the chances are of another “Alien” flick coming to fruition. Considering Weaver recently reunited with her “Aliens” director Jim Cameron on his science-fiction epic “Avatar”, the subject would’ve had to have at least come up, yes?
”No, I don’t think so”, Weaver tells us. ”You know, we talked about Aliens. It was a great experience for both of us. I think he was busy kind of recycling Terminator, because there’s a Terminator IV now. And, you know, I don’t think we have a deep, pressing need to finish the saga although it does definitely feel unfinished to me. And I think if I wanted to go and have a meeting with Jim about it, I’m sure he’d be game”.
Weaver isn’t ruling out another sequel but says it’s unlikely.
”You know, nothing would surprise me in this business. I think it would be very hard to resurrect, because I think the character of the alien has been too exposed in those Alien Versus Predator movies, which I never saw. So, you wouldn’t be able to use that. You’d have to reinvent some of that.”
