Sigourney doesn't like guns so they ditched them.
Sigourney saw Ripley as a solo character and didn't want someone else hogging the spotlight which I can only assume is why they got rid of Newt and Hicks.
Her acting was fine but the producers weren't the only ones responsible for the problems with Alien 3.
Unrelated but she was awful in The Defenders.

Twohy and Red wrote scripts for Alien 3 without Hicks and Newt - and also no Ripley.

And she was cool in Defenders.

 Sigourney Weaver as Alexandra surprisingly.

Fun fact, Ralph Brown also played Del Preston in Wayne's World 2.

"That is why Keith (Richards) cannot be killed by conventional Weapons"

Damn, it looks like Sigourney was a real bitch during shooting of Alien 3. On another hand, that made tension between Ripley and 85 so believeable.

One of the documentaries has some choice lines from him about the production.

Needless to say, much like Brown, he thought it was a lot better before the studio cut it to pieces.

Part I:

I'm re-reading it before getting into Part II. Love the details. We even learn where he got his hair cut for the meeting.  :laugh:

Huh. Part II was a good read, but I wish he still had more of his diaries to transcribe.

Also wish there was more on Richard E. Grant at the end, considering he did screen tests or something, whatever that footage is they show in the doc. Still pretty great though. I definitely wish more of these Alien 3 actors had some words about the production, particularly some of the background people.

Speaking of which, William and Arthur are f**king tall!


Enjoy
