Hello. Sigourney had photoshoot for the spanish website El Pais Semanal. I added pictures to the gallery. Enjoy!
Hello. Yesterday Sigourney attends 2 events: SiriusXM’s Entertainment Weekly Radio Channel and Comic-Con International 2016.
US actress Sigourney Weaver will receive the Donostia Prize at the 64th San Sebastián International Film Festival, which opens on September 19. Weaver will attend the festival for the premiere of her new movie A Monster Calls, directed by Spain’s Juan Antonio Bayona.
The career achievement award will be presented to the actress at a gala on September 21 in the Kursaal auditorium. The cast of the film, which is not competing at the festival, includes Felicity Jones, Lewis MacDougall and Liam Neeson.
A Monster Calls is based on the Patrick Ness novel of the same name, which won the United Kingdom’s Carnegie and Greenaway Medals for distinguished children’s books. Ness, who also wrote the movie’s script, tells the story of Conor, a 12-year-old boy trying to confront the illness of his mother with the help of monster that visits him at night. A Monster Calls is Bayona’s third feature film, and the final installment in his trilogy of poignant stories centering on the strength of the mother-child bond.
The continuation of the Alien franchise is on the cusp of hitting overdrive as not one, but two films are prepped for release: Ridley Scott’s Prometheus follow-up Alien: Covenant and a fifth Alien film from District 9 director Neil Blomkamp.
Despite the latter being put on hold to account for Scott’s film – he does get first say as the series creator – one person who has been quite vocal about the film is Sigourney Weaver who has played Ellen Ripley in all four Alien films to date.
She has now suggested that Alien 5 will serve as the end of the beloved character’s story.
“It’s a great story and it’s satisfying to me to give this woman an ending,” Entertainment Weekly reports her as saying.
Regarding the current state of the project, Weaver commented: “Well, we have a great script. Fox asked us to delay so Ridley Scott could shoot his [second] Prometheus movie. That was too bad because we would have already done it by now.
“I hope it won’t be a few [years]. I hope it’ll be a couple. But we’ll see.”
In the meantime, Weaver will be put to work shooting up to four Avatar films under the guide of her Aliens director James Cameron while Blomkamp will direct sci-fi novel adaptation The Gone World.
Alien: Covenant stars Katharine Waterston, Michael Fassbender, Demián Bichir, Danny McBride and Prometheus’ original star, Noomi Rapace. It will be released August 2017.
