If given the chance, Sigourney Weaver would revisit Ellen Ripley

Before I begin this article, we should all reflect that 25 years ago on this very day, James Cameron's ALIENS was released.

While I do completely and utterly appreciate Cameron for directing and writing the awesomeness that is the sequel to ALIEN, I also give major thanks to Sigourney Weaver for being one of the most badass chicks to ever grace the big screen as Ellen Ripley.

During an interview with Moviefone, the site asked Weaver if audiences would ever get more of the actress as Ripley:

"I doubt it just because the way the industry is. While I can't speak for them, I think for Fox, once you're sixty, 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."

"I love the way the story has evolved, that every few years there's another voyage into that universe with another wonderful young director. And certainly I'm blessed with lots of different wonderful jobs, so I'm not sitting at home ruminating about all of that. If I was really caught up in it, I would find a logical story and try to get them behind it, but she may just be left circling earth."

"I could definitely kick that alien's ass again. [Ripley]'s a smart hero, it's the way she thinks, but just looking at the way the business is..."

Extra Tidbit: Special thanks also go out to the ALIEN creators, Dan O'Bannon and Ronald Shusett because without them there would be no story.
