Ripley returns! Sigourney Weaver talks possible new ‘Alien’ movie: ‘It’s gestating’

Our excitement was already off the charts when the delightful Sigourney Weaver stopped by the SiriusXM studios this week.

Hugh Jackman, Sharlto Copley, Dev Patel and Neil Blomkamp were also on the scene to discuss their new movie Chappie, which looks jam packed with pure sci-fi movie goodness. Director Neil Blomkamp admittedly “geeked out” the first day Weaver arrived on set.

But we feel Blomkamp on that one. Especially considering our reaction to Blomkamp and Weaver’s announcement: the two are potentially collaborating on another Alien movie.

“How big a possibility is it?” Entertainment Weekly‘s Jess Cagle asked.

“Very big,” Blomkamp said.

“Let’s just put it this way: we’ve found the host. And it’s gestating,” Weaver revealed.

The Queen of Sci-Fi has spoken.

And we could not be more stoked.
