"Final report of the commercial starship Nostromo, third officer reporting. The other members of the crew, Kane, Lambert, Parker, Brett, Ash and Captain Dallas, are dead. Cargo and ship destroyed. I should reach the frontier in about six weeks. With a little luck, the network will pick me up. This is Ripley, last survivor of the Nostromo, signing off".
So, you have a chance to remake ALIEN (1979). Who is your Ripley?
For me? It's working mom Bridget Moynahan who makes Sum Of All Fears and I Robot so very watchable. There's a certain Ripley vive going on there. Of course you may want to 'reimagine' Ripley, the movie or both. But let's keep it classic if we can.....
