Alien 5 to ignore Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection

Neill Blomkamp's new Alien

(From Den of Geek) Remember when Bryan Singer put together his 2006 Superman movie, Superman Returns? His logic with that was to pick the story up following Superman II, and to basically pretend that Superman III and Superman IV didn’t happen. The story thus wiped two films out of the Superman boxset, at least in narrative terms.

Well, Neill Blomkamp for one has taken the idea to heart.

It was revealed that he was pressing ahead with making an Alien sequel, that would star Sigourney Weaver. And now, the pair – whilst promoting their new film, Chappie – have revealed that the plan is to do a sequel to Aliens with their new Alien project.

Weaver told Sky Movies that “I would love to take Ripley out of orbiting around in space and give a proper finish to what was such an excellent story. So when somebody like Neill Blomkamp suddenly said ‘well, I’m interested in finishing the story’, my little ears perked up”.

It was Blomkamp who dropped the big revelation though. “I want this film to feel like it is literally the genetic sibling of Aliens. So it’s Alien, Aliens, this movie”.

Yep: the new Alien film is seeming going to wipe Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection out of the series’ continuity.

Weaver revealed that Blomkamp had started talking to her about his love of the Alien movies while the pair were making Chappie together, and then began sending some of the artwork that the director eventually put online back in January.
