New concept art released by Blomkamp with caption saying Alien is going well. Love the project.

So I can get this one out the way - http://www.vcpost.com/articles/76809/20150629/alien-5-filming-begins-vancouver-neill-blomkamp-assures-film-wont.htm

This first came up in May on Twitter. Neill replied to an article calling the claim that Alien 5 would be filming in Vancouver "horseshit". Considering how candid he generally is I'm inclined to believe its not him covering his back.

QuoteSome of the actors from the Ridley Scott's 1979 movie Alien are coming back to reprise their roles.

I stopped reading any further when I read the above.

It does not necessarily mean that Alien 5 won't be filmed in Vancouver, just that it won't happen this fall.

Apparently according to this article, Sigourney Weaver had her character killed in Alien 3 because she did not like the idea of Alien vs. Predator which FOX wanted to turn into a film.  The article actually relates to Alien 5...

Folks, as I understand, this thread is for posting news on Alien 5 only.  Comments belong elsewhere.  (I'm not an admin, but I expect that will be their take on posting in this thread.  Let's try to keep it as a useful news resource without jamming it up with opinion posts)

That's certainly possible. I did speak to the informant and the source sounded pretty solid.

The current article making the rounds about Ripley hating AvP (not exactly new) did contain some very small news about Alien 5: http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2015-07-19/sigourney-weaver-alien-vs-predator-really-depressed-me

QuoteThe actress was considerably more enthusiastic about a future addition to the Alien series, namely Neill Blomkamp's untitled sequel/reboot for which concept art was leaked earlier this year.

"I'm so excited about Neill – because Neill is like you guys!" she told the Comic-Con crowd. "He broke the tapes of these movies when he was a kid, he watched them so much."

"I love the fact that's Neill's fulfilling his childhood dream of what he hopes will be the popcorn movie, the Alien popcorn movie that he wanted as a kid to see.

It hasn't been officially confirmed Weaver will be returning for Blomkamp's film, but she implied she'd be involved when a fan asked if Ripley could get a happy ending in the new movie.

"Well – it's certainly something we've discussed," she replied. "I agree, she's had kind of a crap life. Many interruptions."

The above post of the picture of Blomkamp's Alien room qualifies doesn't it?  A picture is worth, well, at least a hundred words in this case.

Corporal Hicks

It does - it was in response to a post I split off.

Ridley Scott said this in a new interview:

"And we have Neill Blomkamp's Alien, which will be out in 2017. We just have the first [screenplay] draft in so far but it looks pretty good."

Yep, typical, the one we really want isn't to be. Goes to show how much fans really matter. The storyline on the Bloomkamp movie is too good to be true, something this fan has always wanted to see. I really didn't care for the two movies after Aliens anyway. It was like they knew what fans wanted and decided to screw the fans and write Alien 3 etc. At my age, I'm used to disappointment...

Rodewaryer

I thought I saw some blurb somewhere that said Bloomkamp's is on hold due to the, ahem...other one being done. Probably an agreement or something. They sound separate enough to me but of course I'm not keen on a Prometheus sequel, so that'll be the one we get.
