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 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.
