Sigourney could star in another Alien film

Sigourney Weaver has hinted she may consider starring in another Alien sequel.

The star says she is willing to explore character Ellen Ripley's dark side.

The actress - who was nominated an Oscar for her performance in first sequel Aliens - wants the franchise to return to its small beginnings by focusing on the psychology of gun-totting Ripley.

Sigourney says, "I always said to Tom Rothman, who runs Fox, that I thought it would be interesting to do a small, spooky movie, more like the first one; a psychological thriller that could take Ripley to whatever the next stage may be. Which side would win out, the Jekyll or the Hyde?"
