News Neill Blomkamp Confirms ‘Alien 5’ Sequel is Officially Dead Published 1 year ago on June 5, 2017 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Quite some time ago director Neill Blomkamp announced that he had a desire to create a real sequel to Alien, which would of included Aliens‘ returning cast Sigourney Weaver and Michael Biehn. Just today, we learned via The Verge that Blomkamp’s project is officially dead. “I think it’s totally dead, yes,” Blomkamp told the site. “That would be an accurate assumption at this point. It’s sad. I spent a long time working on that, and I feel like it was really pretty impressive. But politically, the way it’s gone now, and the way that it all is — it’s just not going to live.” Blomkamp continues, “Yeah. Ridley [Scott] was one of my idols growing up. He’s so talented and he’s made this film that really set me off in a direction. I want to just be as respectful and not go stamping around in this world that he created. I think that if the circumstances were different, and I didn’t feel like I was getting too close to something that he apparently feels a massive personal connection to, that things that may have played out differently. But I did want to be as respectful as possible.” Well, that’s a bummer. We were hoping to one day see Sigourney Weaver and Michael Biehn tearing it up again on the big screen.
