It was only a week ago that I linked to an article about Sigourney Weaver's potential interest at reprising her role as Ellen Ripley following Neill Blomkamp's announcement of ideas for his own sequel to the Alien franchise that he felt wasn't likely to happen. Well it looks like 20th Century Fox have officially given him the helm.
Silas Lesnick writing for ComingSoon.net:
Amazing how he ended up revealing concept art for a movie that he never thought he'd make and fan reaction to it was so positive that 20th Century Fox have taken interest. At least, that's how I figure it went down. I've enjoyed his movies so far and I'm looking forward to Chappie too, and I think he might actually be able to pull it off.
The question is; if he does bring Ripley back, will she be the clone...?
