Alien 5 News:
Moving on to more Alien news, Neill Blomkamp made sure to dip his hat in by hitting his Instagram account to remind us all that Alien 5 will more likely than not be coming sooner or later (following Ridley Scott’s follow-up to Prometheus). He also revealed plans to bring Newt back into the fold. He bolstered that statement with a look at some Newt concept art, which you can check out below:
Sigourney Weaver made an appearance at VMWare earlier this week and had to say the following about Alien 5:
Well, I *think* it is. Ridley asked Neill NOT to make our Alien til after Prometheus 2. He (Ridley) wanted his movie to shoot and be released first. But it’s an AMAZING script, and Neill and I are REALLY excited about doing it. We’re doing other things until we can get going on that. I’d be really surprised if we DIDN’T do it, because it’s such a great script, and we love working together. So, it’s just going to take a little bit longer to get out to you, but it’ll be worth the wait.
Alien 5 is scheduled to be released on October 6, 2017. The film is currently filming in Australia.
