Sigourney Weaver Talks New ‘Alien’ Film With Jimmy Fallon (Video)

Sigourney Weaver The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon

News broke on Wednesday that Neill Blomkamp will be directing a new Alien movie, a project he teased last month with concept art. After fans of the Alien film franchise responded very favorably to the director’s vision, Blomkamp revealed that Fox would make the film with him, but that he was the actual hold-out for it.

Later that night after the news broke that the District 9 director was officially on board for a new Alien movie, Sigourney Weaver appeared on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon in an episode that was recorded earlier that day. But, knowing the history of the project, host Jimmy Fallon did bring up the subject of a new Alien movie during the interview with the star, who was promoting her new film, Chappie, which was directed by Blomkamp.

Check out the video here below, where Weaver talks about Chappie, as well as a new Alien movie. Also included is another part of the interview where the actress recounts seeing the Beatles when she was 12 years old.

During the interview, Weaver talks about how she mentioned a new Alien movie to Louis C.K., who then told her how he’d want to be in that film.

Though Weaver is not officially signed on for the fifth Alien film (fifth if you don’t count the AvP movies), the actress did feature heavily in Blomkamp’s aforementioned concept art. The filmmaker, who also wrote and directed 2013’s Elysium, had expressed interest in working with Weaver on the new movie, while the Ghostbusters actress mentioned recently that she’d consider reprising the role of Ripley if “someone as talented as Neill” was behind it. At this point, I think it’s just a matter of getting everything down on paper at Fox, because I can’t imagine the Weaver not returning to the franchise she’s best known for, especially after seeing what Blomkamp has in mind and now also how he works.

  1. It would have been impossible for Weaver to have seen the Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl “in 1962,” as she claimed. They played there in August 1964 and August 1965.

  2. Yeah… memories fade over 50 years.

    That was still very cute!

  3. Where was she watching the Beatles at 12 years old? In Germany with Tony Sheridan in 1961? Weaver was born in 1949.
