Sounds Like Michael Biehn's 'Hicks' Might Also Return For ALIEN 5

That appears to be the plan at any rate. In the following video interview, Neill Blomkamp and Sigourney Weaver provide an update on "Alien 5", and the Chappie director says he hopes to see Corporal Dwayne Hicks (Michael Biehn in Aliens) return along with Ripley. Check it out.


Though Neill Blomkamp is setting up his Alien movie as the "genetic sibling" of James Cameron's Aliens, the director has also stated that he won't be disregarding the last two films in the series. If that's true he's going to have his work cut out connecting everything together, because Alien 3 saw Hicks and Ripley die, and in Alien: Resurrection the latter returned as a clone 200 years into the future! Whatever he's planning, it sounds like that concept art wasn't just a "what if" scenario to gauge interest, as Blomkamp says he hopes the deceased Colonial Marine will also be back to kick some Xenomorph ass in his movie. Here's the video interview, in which the director also gives us an idea of the tone he'll be aiming for.


Whether Michael Biehn will return to play him is another matter, but one would have to assume the feelers have already been put out there by now. In many ways, bringing Hicks back is actually easier than resurrecting Ripley, as the bloody carcass we see at the beginning of Alien 3 is not recognizable as the character. The Aliens: Colonial Marines video game came up with a reasonably plausible explanation for Hicks' survival, but there are several others. It will be interesting to see what route Blomkamp takes with all of this, but let us know how you would approach things in the usual place.
