Sigourney Weaver has admitted that she won't return to the Alien franchise.
The actress, who played Lieutenant Ellen Ripley in the sci-fi series, told MTV that any hopes of her returning to the franchise were "killed" by the Alien vs Predator films.
However, Weaver expressed a desire to work with Alien director Ridley Scott again and revealed that the pair had discussed an idea for a sequel.
She said: "The last time [Ridley and I] saw each other we talked about it. The character is still interesting [and] I'd love to work with Ridley again.
"But Fox has effectively killed it because of Alien vs Predator. What else can you do with the creature? You can take the situation, you can go back to where they came from."
The 58-year-old added: "To play someone who ages a couple hundred years was fascinating. [But] let [Ripley] rest."

I really hope we never see another Alien movie now, the creature just isn't scary anymore, it's been paraded across the screen too much now. Just let the franchise be. Somehow I get the feeling that Sigourney will return in a few years and try and justify it by saying she thought there was still a story to tell etc... etc...
