An Alien reunion is in the works.  Ripley herself Sigourney Weaver has been tapped to join the cast of director Ridley Scott’s Moses epic Exodus, along with John Turturro (O Brother, Where Art Thou?) and Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul.  Scott is putting together an impressive cast for the pic, with Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton already set to play Moses and Ramses, respectively.  Variety reports that Weaver will play Tuya, the mother of Ramses, while Turturro has been tapped to play Ramses’ father Seti and Paul is in talks to portray a Hebrew slave alongside Bale’s Moses.  Additionally, Deadline reports that Ben Kingsley is in talks to join the cast as a Hebrew scholar.

Steven Zaillian (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) penned the script for Exodus, and Scott is looking to start production in September in England, Spain, and Morocco.  This will mark the first time that Scott and Weaver have worked together in quite a while, though Exodus will see Weaver playing a considerably different role than that of her Alien heroine.
