Although there aren’t any hard and fast deets out there concerning Ridley Scott’s prequel to “Alien,” I’ve got my fingers crossed for a female badass to rival the Sigourney Weaver’s iconic Ripley. Since Weaver has stated publicly she doesn’t think Ripley could be part of an “Alien” prequel, I have a few suggestions as to who could fulfill the role of cinema’s favorite alien-killing, kitty-saving, space-feminist.
You knew I had to put her on this list, right? Despite the so-called media blackout on Fox, I can’t deny that I am chomping at the bit to see Megan Fox be a most literal man-eater in “Jennifer’s Body.” Did you see that red-band trailer where she sets her tongue on fire? No matter what they say, she is no heiress apparent to the Jolie hot-scary crown. Still, Fox could hold her own in outer space. After blowing away the Alien mother, she’d probably kick back, give some more hair-singeing interviews and make out with a stripper. Hey, it could happen.
