Director Neill Blomkamp has shared a brand new piece of concept art for Alien 5 on his Instagram account. This one shows Ripley and Corporal Hicks with his acid-burnt face, standing next to a man in heavy armour. Note the South Korean flag on his armour. You can also make out two strange figures standing behind them which harkens back to one of his other pieces of concept art showing Ripley next to a strange alien figure. Blomkamp says in the caption that the alien project is going well and he’s loving it.
This is the first piece of Alien 5 concept art we’ve seen since the initial batch was released back in January 2015. We can only speculate what the story will be and we know that it will be ignoring the events in Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection. We’re still in the dark as to whether or not Michael Biehn has agreed to reprise his role as Corporal Hicks.
