Weaver Wants To Help With Alien Prequel

SIGOURNEY WEAVER is hoping for a consultative role on the upcoming ALIEN prequel because she wants to make sure the film stays true to the franchise she helped build.
Director Sir Ridley Scott is bringing the sci-fi series back to the big screen in a new movie, which is set before Weaver's iconic character, Ellen Ripley, first encountered the scary space creatures in the 1979 original.
Scott is not planning to include Weaver in the new picture, but the actress hopes she will be able to find a role behind-the-scenes.
She tells Shock Till You Drop, "If they needed help with the story, I could probably help them because I probably have a good sense of what people appreciate in the series and what they don't care about. So I hope they'll ask me."
The prequel will be directed by Scott and written by Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof, while The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo star Noomi Rapace is said to have signed on to star.
The currently-untitled film is slated for a 2011 release.
