BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Sigourney Weaver and the cast of "Alien" are returning to the starship Nostromo.

The actress who portrayed unflappable officer Ellen Ripley in the "Alien" film franchise is reprising her role in an upcoming video game set after the events of the original 1979 film.

Weaver and several cast members from filmmaker Ridley Scott's sci-fi horror film recorded new dialogue and will have their likeness appear in bonus levels of "Alien: Isolation." Other cast members returning to their roles as Nostromo crew members include Tom Skerritt, Yaphet Kotto and Veronica Cartwright.

The central story of "Isolation" centers on Ripley's daughter Amanda. She was briefly mentioned in a scene from the 1986 sequel "Aliens."

The game marks the first time Weaver has reprised the role since the 1997 sequel "Alien Resurrection."
