SIGOURNEY WEAVER has admitted she's in talks to make a fifth ALIEN (1979) movie. The leggy actress, who starred in the first four movies in the hit series, says she'd be happy to reprise her role for a fifth time, and is currently in talks to see if it can happen.
Weaver admits, "Yes, I've been talking to a few people - no names - about it, but I left my character not knowing even what species she was, so right now I'm a little unclear as to how things can progress. "
And Weaver says it was actually the untrue rumours that a fifth movie was in the works that made her give any thought to making the film. She says, "It was only when the rumours about Part 5 started that we realised what an appetite there was for it. " (LE/E/IG)
