Alien Producer Reveals Treatment For Fifth Movie With Sigourney Weaver

Alien: Resurrection is widely considered a low point for the iconic sci-fi franchise and was hardly the sendoff Sigourney Weaver‘s Ellen Ripley deserved. Plans to set this right with a further sequel have been mooted on more than one occasion but have never come to fruition, most likely because series mastermind Ridley Scott chose to pursue a raft of prequels to the 1979 original, rather than plot out further adventures for the kickass heroine.

Following Alien: Covenant‘s underwhelming box office performance and Disney’s big-money acquisition of Fox, rumors of a fifth entry in the mainline Alien saga have been bandied about, but it appears there’s some truth to them. Long-time franchise producer and writer Walter Hill has just revealed a screenplay treatment for an all-new sequel featuring Weaver‘s Ripley.

The 50-page treatment for Alien 5 was co-written by producer David Giler, with whom Hill co-wrote Alien 3.
