Sigourney Weaver confirms she’ll be in Neill Blomkamp’s Alien movie

The first we heard of Neill Blomkamp working on an Alien movie was when he released a bunch of concept art on his Instagram. The director didn’t think it was going anywhere and decided to release the images. However, it turns out that Fox wanted him to direct the next Alien movie, with the director zeroing in on Sigourney Weaver to star. Now we have Weaver, herself, confirming to Sky Movies that she is on board to return as Ellen Ripley.

What can we expect from the movie? Perhaps a proper closure to the character. Blomkamp says the film will take place after James Cameron’s Aliens, meaning that he might not acknowledge David Finsher’s Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection.

Are you okay with Blomkamp’s film disregarding the existence of Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection?
