Los Angeles - Sigourney Weaver thinks the Alien saga is "slightly unfinished".

The 65-year-old actress, who starred as Ellen Ripley in the iconic sci-fi franchise, admits she's keen to see the story of her on-screen character completed.

"You have to reinvent the envelope, do things that are beloved and at the same time take it to a new place. It's a very difficult thing and I don't think it's anything a studio can manufacture."
