Sienna Miller Is Today’s Kickass Lady For The Ridley Scott ‘Alien’ Prequel

All of us here at MTV are excited for Ridley Scott’s “Alien” prequel. The director hasn’t had anything to do with the series since the 1979 original, which is a bonafide classic. To honor Scott and his lasting contribution to badass women in film, we’ve paired up the lovely duo of MTV contributor Jenni Miller and producer Sohyung Kang to produce a magical list of five leading ladies who could rock Ripley.

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 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.

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” star Sienna Miller hasn’t really had her chance to shine when it comes to her fighting skills. Until now. In the aforementioned “Joe” she has a knockdown brawl with co-star Rachel Nichols that immediately takes the “cat” out of “cat fight.” No spoilers, but it’s pretty special to see those two trade blows like the two warriors they’re supposed to be. Miller is also not shy when it comes to telling nosy folks to mind their own biz, as we all recently learned when she gave an Australian DJ a serious verbal beat-down after he got too sassy.
