Sigourney open to another Alien movie

We asked if there was more to Ripley she was interested in exploring. “It’s not that so much is that we just left it at such a creepy place, sort of stranded above Earth. I was quite happy to move onto other things and I didn’t want to go to Earth. I didn’t want to manufacture a sequel and I felt like we were starting to do that. If something happens from this, it would be very organic and very original, and because of that, it would make me want to do it. If it was someone as talented as Neill, I’d certainly listen.”

Some interesting discussions on there.  And Ripley has always been a great character so it would certainly be good to see her return again.

It was only a couple of weeks ago that I went on a massive Alien and Predator binge, re-watching every movie in the franchise, including Prometheus. And whilst there have been plenty of movies already (and admittedly, not all of them great), I still have a thirst to see more of that universe. Whilst I would hope that Neill Blomkamp has the ability to pull it off after his other work, I do at least have a lot of faith in Sigourney ensuring that she does the right thing for her character.
