There’s a new interview with Sigourney Weaver over on IndieWire where they spoke to her at the Marrakech Film Festival. She talks about Avatar and Prometheus but there’s nothing overly new in there. Sigourney wishes Ridley Scott luck with the movie and says Charlize Theron is a wonderful actress. Here’s the main bits:
“Ridley and I talked about the idea of ‘Prometheus’ and I always thought that was the only story to tell…So I think it’s great that Ridley is doing it,” she said. “I will be as excited as anyone to see how he recreates this creature, re-energizes the Alien. I’m very proud of our four movies and I wish him all the best with it.”
“Well, you know [the iconic nature of Ripley] happened over four movies so let’s give [Theron] a break. I’m sure they’re not trying to create a blonde Ripley or anything. She’s a wonderful actress, she’ll want to do her own thing with it and not be in the shadow of the other one.”
She goes on to say that she didn’t want to do another Alien movie because 20th Century Fox wanted to set it on Earth. She also recollects her time on Alien 3 about how the studio was rushing to get the film completed in time. Thanks to Darkoo for the news.
