Sigourney Weaver Confirmed For New ALIEN; Will Be “Genetic Sibling” To First Two Films

We know director Neill Blomkamp's next project will be his Alien movie, but now we might have more of an idea of what to expect from it. By the sounds of things Sigourney Weaver will be back as Ripley, and both Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection will be disregarded!



It seems Neill Blomkamp's Alien movie is pulling a Superman Returns and disregarding the final two movies in an established quadrilogy. The only real difference is that, unlike Superman III and IV, the those last two Alien flicks (3 especially) do have their share of fans. It was probably a given that Blomkamp wasn't going to try to find another way (cloning's been done) to bring Ripley back from the dead, but this might not sit too well with those who felt the character already had a proper send off at the end of David Fincher's movie. In the following video interview with both Blomkamp and Sigourney Weaver, it seems pretty clear that the Chappie director plans to weave his own story out of the events of James Cameron's Aliens, and it also sounds like he'll have Lieutenant Ellen Ripley along for the ride.
