Weaver on Aliens

This is story is a couple of days old, but it's a pretty interesting one, particularly since it's my life's ambition to write an AVP movie. The story basically goes that Fox had a genuine shot at a Sigourney Weaver starring, Ridley Scott directed sequel to ALIEN: RESURRECTION. And of course they jumped at it because it was a no brainer. Nope, just kidding, that of course never happened:

“The last time [Ridley and I] saw each other we talked about it. The character is still interesting [and] I’d love to work with Ridley again... But Fox has effectively killed it because of ‘Alien vs. Predator.’ What else can you do with the creature? You can take the situation, you can go back to where they came from... To play someone who ages a couple hundred years was fascinating... [But] let [Ripley] rest.”

So there you go. ALIEN VS. PREDATOR officially killed Ripley, killed her dead. I guess the consolation is that we did get that sick BAD BOYS type scene where Sanaa Lathan and the Predator run through the polar ice caps though*.

*Not actually any consolation.
Extra Tidbit: Please, share your respects for the franchise that Ridley, Sigourney, James Cameron, and many others helped build.
