Sigourney Weaver - Weaver Wants One Last Alien Adventure

Sigourney Weaver is desperate to grab her gun and head back into space for another Alien film, but fears studio executives think she's too old to front an action film.
The actress became one of Hollywood's most famous heroines after taking on the role of tough-talking Ellen Ripley in the sci-fi horror franchise, and she is convinced her cult character has "unfinished" business with her extra-terrestrial nemesis.
But, at 61, Weaver believes she's past her prime in the eyes of movie bosses.
She tells Moviefone.com, "I could definitely kick that alien's a** 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."
