Alien 5: new doubts on film

Ridley Scott is currently putting the finishing touches to Alien: Covenant, that’s being unleashed in cinemas this coming May. We’ve seen some footage from the film, and appreciating that it’s just a snapshot of the final movie, what we’ve feasted our eyes on is certainly impressive.

Scott has plans to make at least one further Alien movie – possibly two – once he’s done with Covenant. And ever since he revealed that, that’s thrown into doubt the future of Neill Blomkamp’s ‘Alien 5’ movie. This is the one that’ll bring Sigourney Weaver back to the franchise, and that will all but ignore Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection. However, as Alien: Covenant has taken priority, Alien 5 has sat in limbo.

And if a new Tweet from Blomkamp is anything to go by, that’s where it’s likely to stay, too. For it’s looking increasingly like Alien 5 being one of those films that ends up in lists of unmade sequels for evermore at this rate.

 

Here’s the simply exchange, the first update we’ve heard on the Alien 5 project in some time…

No more details were given, but it does seem to reflect the path the project has taken in recent times. Fingers crossed that it comes back to life…
