Neill Blomkamp is developing a new Alien film which will star Sigourney Weaver.
Blomkamp in a recent interview stated that his new Alien movie would be "the genetic sibling of Aliens" and then said "so it's Alien, Aliens, this movie."
The statement led some to believe that Blomkamp's Alien would be ignoring or rewriting the third and fourth Alien movies.
However, now Blomkamp has cleared things up.
“My favorites are the first two movies,” Blomkamp said in the above interview. “So I want to make a film that’s connected to Alien and Aliens. That’s my goal. I’m not trying to undo Alien 3 or Alien: Resurrection, I just want it to be connected to Alien one and two.”
