According to The Nerdist, Neill Blomkamp’s “Alien” movie is a sequel to the 1986’s “Aliens”. This will discount Alien 3and Alien: Resurrection. It will star Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley.
This movie started out as concept art and sketches on Blomkamp’s Instagram account. As more fans saw the art, the swell of interest in this art as a premise for a movie grew. Now it has been green light.
It will be interesting to see if they simply ignore Aliens 3 and 4 or if they somehow explain them away.
