Sigourney Weaver, Neill Blomkamp Tease 'Alien' Follow-up

Also, Sigourney Weaver officially confirmed that she will star in the upcoming film:

*After teasing his ideal Alien sequel on Instagram earlier this year, director Neill Blomkamp was finally given the opportunity to direct a brand new installment in the Alien franchise, and it looks like Sigourney Weaver has signed on to reprise her iconic role.

Weaver and Blomkamp, who both walked the red carpet at the New York premiere of their upcoming sci-fi collaboration Chappie, stopped to talk to ET’s Jason Dundas, and they both teased the long-awaited project.

When asked about whether or not she was coming back to reprise her role as alien-fighting badass Ellen Ripley, Weaver said she would be retuning.

“There are two factors [Neill Blomkamp] needs: Ripley and the Aliens,” Weaver said.

Blomkamp, who directed Chappie and is best known for helming the Oscar-nominated sci-fi epic District 9, confirmed her participation as well.

“She’ll be in the cast,” Blomkamp said. “She is the Alien franchise, to me, so yeah.”

Blomkamp also confirmed that he will begin pre-production on his Alien sequel as early as next week.*

Nice to see a Bump on a OLD Topic....

Indeed the ALIEN V project was placed on Hold so that Ridley Scott could at LEAST begin his First Sequel to PROMETHEUS....  The Movie was NOT canceled but was placed on HOLD and RS was to be Producer and so i Suspect that some of the PLOT would be Changed...  Ridley Scott did say that you could introduce Ripley back as you could DE-AGE her so it seemed he was NOT against the making of a Alternative ALIENS Sequel.... he just DID-NOT want it to STEEL the THUNDER from his Prequels or AFFECT what he intends to SHOW.

However..... nearly a Year ago David Giler and Walter Hill did announce they have a ALIEN V Project in the Works, which seemed it would bring back RIPLEY by making some of the Franchise merely DREAMS...

But as the Months went by it became all SILENT on this Front, but then the COVID Pandemic would have Put many Plans in Hollywood on HOLD.
