Still no indication of what the story could be...

As I've said before, I have no issue with the third and fourth movies being retconned, providing it's done well. That's the big gamble. If it is, then good luck to them.

What's interesting is that Weaver's apparently been clued into the story and seems to like what's planned. not necessarily an indication of quality, of course, but it sounds as if she at least feels Ripley's portrayal would be presented as in character.

Interesting, but it's so early for people to get too upset or excited. Directors attach and detach from projects all the time, and who knows what will happen with this project if Chappie doesn't perform well at the box office. Like I said in one of the other threads, it'll be 2017 at the earliest before some incarnation of this project hits theaters, assuming it doesn't die like previous Alien 5s that Fox has had in the works. There's so much up in the air.

Blomkamp is an auteur not a director for hire and it sounds like he has already signed the dotted line. Chappie's box office probably won't factor anymore.

well as an actor she is really good. but u know what? she did that shitty AR too, so i believe for her is no matter what as long as its Alien related, she loves this franchise so much

Alien 3 is OK and Alien 4 is TERRIBLE so I think this is the only way to go...Bring back Hicks!

I strongly dislike the idea of a retcon of Alien 3 and Resurrection, they're obviously not as good as Alien and Aliens but they do belong in the Alien Quadrilogy...A true visionary can make an amazing successful new installment in an ongoing series without resorting to poor Fan-Fiction tactics of retcons...I respect everyone's opinion but I think retconing Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection at this point is a VERY poor choice...
