While talking with AlloCine, Neill Blomkamp - Who will be directing the fifth Alien film- reveals that he doesn't want to make Alien 3 or Alien Resurrection not relevant to his new film, but he wants to make his film connect to the first two, "I'm not trying to undo Alien 3 or Alien Resurrection." He then continues, "My favourites are the first two movies. I want to make a film that's connected to Alien and Aliens. That's my goal". With that said, Neill will have to work with Ripley, Hicks, and the remains of her team flying into space after defeating the Queen Alien, instead of their devastating deaths a few minutes into the third installment.

The Alien film franchise (known as Aliens in most media) is a science fiction horror film series consisting of four installments, focusing on Lieutenant Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) and her battles with an extraterrestrial lifeform, commonly referred to as "the Alien". Produced by 20th Century Fox, the series started with Alien (1979), which led to three film sequels, as well as numerous books, comics and video game spin-offs.
