    Neill Blomkamp’s Alien sequel probably won’t happen

    It looks as though Neill Blomkamp’s ‘Alien’ is dead. Neill Blomkamp, the director of ‘Chappie’ and ‘District 9’, wowed sci-fi fans a couple of years back with some impressive concept art for his planned ‘Alien’ sequel. Planning to bring Ripley, Newt and Hicks back to the franchise, the ambitious project looked to be a huge hit with ‘Alien’ fans.

    Newt Will Be In Alien 5, Says Michael Biehn

    Just when Sir Ridley Scott’s ‘Alien: Covenant’ has been gathering momentum and dominating the ‘Alien’ franchise headlines, Michael Biehn’s only gone and revealed some juicy details on the plot for ‘Alien 5′. Biehn, the actor who played Corporal Hicks in James Cameron’s ‘Aliens’, had a lot to say regarding ‘Alien 5′ (as per its working title), declaring it was still very much happening. Not only does this, as he previously specified, ignore ‘Alien 3′ and ‘Alien: Resurrection’, but it plays out a very different timeline whereby both Hicks and Newt survive the crash-landing in David Fincher’s ‘Alien 3′.
