Quote of the Day

"Well, I think it is. Ridley asked Neill not to make our Alien 'til after Prometheus 2. [Ridley] wanted his movie to shoot and be released first. But it’s an amazing script, and Neill and I are really excited about doing it. We’re doing other things until we can get going on that. I’d be really surprised if we didn't do it, because it’s such a great script, and we love working together. So, it’s just going to take a little bit longer to get out to you, but it’ll be worth the wait."

That's Sigourney Weaver on the status of the new Alien movie that she was all set to make with District 9 director Neill Blomkamp this year, until Ridley Scott went and budged his way into things. Listen, I don't want to believe anything other than Sigourney Weaver will go on living and being awesome forever and ever, so I hesitate to even utter such things, but... the woman's in her mid-60s right now. We need to keep such things in mind. The saga of Ripley is clearly about ten thousand percent more important to fans of the franchise than ANYONE ELSE. Keep it straight, folks.

Anyway I have a feeling she'll probably talk about this and other Ripley-adjacent things when I see her in person tomorrow night for that big Aliens event she's attending here in New York!!! (Ahh!!!!)
