In the latest issue of Empire Magazine, director Neill Blomkamp, once again discusses new details on his upcoming Alien project! However, unlike previous reports of recycled hints, this new interview actually offers some new information about Alien 5's plot and its relationship to Prometheus 2

We already had confirmed that Blomkamp's Alien film would not link to Ridley Scott's Prometheus 2, but this interview wih Neill conforms this information. Interestingly enough however, Blomkamp reveals that he did have to change an element of the film's plot to not tread on the toes of Prometheus 2. Ridley Scott, who is also producing Alien 5, apparently is thrilled with what Neill has come up with for the film's direction - only having a few things altered so they don't interfere with his plans for Prometheus 2 - which is still in development.

"I changed the one thing [Ridley Scott] felt was bumping Prometheus a little bit" said Blomkamp, before he mentioned that Alien 5 will actually not be titled "Alien 5" at all. "It's kinda quite bold, but it gives away too much if I say the title".

When asked about the film's timeline, he confirms his Alien movie will take place after James Cameron's Aliens once more: "Where it went after Aliens to me, as a fan, was wrong". The new film will be "the triplet of the first two. There's a shitload missing as a fan that I would want to see".

You'll be able to catch the full interview in Empire's latest issue when it goes on sale later this week! Thanks to Den Of Geek for the news!
