i would definitely like to see an alien film, the story of ripley has been concluded, i do not see how she can continue a story, she already died in alien 3 and then became a clone in alien 4. the franchise should bring another younger actress that will carry the franchise, it is very possible to make a great alien film even without sigourney weaver.
