Neill Blomkamp just dropped some production art for the ‘is it or isn’t it dead’ Alien 5 on his Instagram page. In this case it is a look at a grown up Newt. She looks like a badass for sure having grown up in the shadow of the Alien. Now with this in mind, does it prove the idea that Alien 5 picks up after Aliens therefore dismissing 3 & 4? It is still too early to say. I am really curious if they will discount the other films outright or turn them into hyperspace dreams. And I’m not sure how I feel about any of that yet.
We have not heard much about the film since last year as Ridley asked Neil to step aside on the project while Scott made the follow up to Prometheus. In the wake of that, the rumor was the Alien 5 project was dead.
Recently Sigourney has been in interviews and has said the project is not dead after all. At this point who knows? I do hope they move forward on this film though. Take a look at this great production art below and tell us are you looking forward to new Alien films?
