Movie Review: Alien

Ridley Scott is also revisiting his directorial past with an Alien (1979) prequel in development. The movie made names of both Scott and Sigourney Weaver with her portrayal as superhero and female icon, Ripley. Ripley was recently voted at Comic Con as the greatest onscreen feminine superhero of all time. No news of whether Weaver will cameo in the prequel, which is due for release in 2011. Comparisons to Weaver’s Ripley will no doubt disappoint but who out there could possibly fill her shoes. My bet is that Scott will choose a relative unknown for the female lead, as he did when he cast Weaver, that is if it is presumed that his prequel will center on a woman. This may not be the case.
