Weaver Wants To Kill Off Ripley
SIGOURNEY WEAVER is trying to convince movie maker RIDLEY SCOTT to make a fifth ALIEN film - so she can kill off her character ELLEN RIPLEY.
The British director made ALIEN with Weaver in 1979, before JAMES CAMERON, DAVID FINCHER and then JEAN-PIERRE JEUNET continued the sci-fi franchise - but Weaver wants Scott to return for one final film.
The GLADIATOR movie maker says, "About six months ago, Sigourney Weaver said to me, 'I'd like there to be a fifth film because I'd like to make a clean exit. You virtually created me back then. Don't you want to kill me?'"
Weaver has appeared in all four Alien films, but will not have a role in spin-off movie ALIEN VS PREDATOR. Instead, actress SANAA LATHAN will take the lead.27/10/2003 09:37
