Updating a hero can make it timeless.

I think Ripley's a character as iconic as Batman, Mad Max, James Bond and many others.

I'd love to have a new take of this character and see what it brings to the table.

I don't. I'd be more thrilled to see what they do with Ripley.

Graverobbery's a crime y'know.

And we already have our Frankenstein film.

And Frankenstein's monster's the real star.

The only timeless heroes I remember are James Bond and Dr Who. 

Can you imagine Ripley being played by different actresses / actors through the decades?  :laugh:

I don’t think the Alien franchise is made for that anyway  ;D

Graverobbery's a crime y'know.

I'm pretty confident we'll have very soon a new original Alien protagonist, in a soft-rebooted universe. And I'm excited about it.

If you're not going to use Sigourney Weaver to play Ellen Ripley one more time then don't use the character at all I'd say. I'd love to see her reprise her role one more time but it's also time for the torch to be passed on. Perhaps Amanda or Newt?

Sylvia Hoeks or... I'm going to tell them you tried to shoot me first. (:



Ellen Ripley and every relation, gone.

Good, but the rating is the least of the Alien series' problems currently.

Such was Weaver's intention with the Blomkamp project. I agree it seems pointless to recast the character, though. Just write a new character.

The latter could happen if the above is resurrected.

Amanda? No. We already know her fate, which means no will-she-die tension in a future story. If she's involved in any adventures, they have to be so limited that they're virtually inconsequential, due to that (admittedly, frustrating) piece of 'Alien Resurrection' dialogue. Humanity simply hadn't had any meaningful known encounters with the creatures since 'Alien 3' occured. Those few who knew about and sought it, had assumed all was lost.

Either go with the Blompkamp/Weaver project or set something after AR took place. That's the only way to get a truly fresh canvas back, again.
