Hollywood superstar Sigourney Weaver has hinted she may consider starring in another ALIEN sequel - to explore character ELLEN RIPLEY's dark side.

The statuesque actress - who was nominated an OSCAR for her performance in first sequel ALIENS - wants the franchise to return to its small beginnings by focusing on the psychology of gun-totting Ripley.

Sigourney says, "I always said to TOM ROTHMAN, who runs Fox, that I thought it would be interesting to do a small, spooky movie, more like the first one; a psychological thriller that could take Ripley to whatever the next stage may be.

"Which side would win out, the JEKYLL or the HYDE?"
