There's a video showing Michael Biehn talking about Alien 5. It's from June though but I've never seen it before. He confirms A3 and A4 are being ignored but joked that him and Newt could be killed off again at the start of Blomkamp's movie.

There's a big difference between ignoring Alien 3 & 4 and retconing them.  I'm hoping that Neil's Alien film is a midquel that takes place between Aliens and & Alien 3.  Otherwise, Its just a huge waste.

Only if it's not atmospheric and entertaining. At this point, that's all I'm asking for. Too many disappointments, so far.

Personally, I feel like if Alien5 changes the history, I'll be alright with it because, like others have said, the canon is what you choose. Just because FOX says "Alien novels are now canon, Colonial Marines (game) is canon, etc...) doesn't mean they truly are. It may be their fictional universe, but only in license rights. We the fans power these universes. So if you don't like something, that's fine. We all must respect each others' view points.

There have been too many disappointments, too much wasted potential. I enjoy all the films to an extent. For example, I like Resurrection right up until Ripley 8 finds and torches her failed clones. Then, you can basically just turn off the movie.

What I want to see in Alien 5: Biehn, Weaver, return the Xenomorphs to their former scary biomechanical nightmare-inducing selves, and the world building from Alien, with respect to atmosphere built upon real sets and a strong musical score.

As long as it actually ends up being an all around decent film then I'll be happy. If it ends up being no better than Alien 3, then it's a real waste.

Someone said that films should aspire to be great, as great as classics as T2 or Psycho, etc. Not sure those films were trying to be great, but were merely creations of their times.

I'll be happy as long as they retcon/ignore whatever terminology you prefer Alien3 and Resurrection.
