I'm surprised no-one has posted this up yet: http://www.ew.com/article/2016/07/06/aliens-30th-anniversary-comic-con-event

Quote
To commemorate the release of the 1986 action/sci-fi classic, EW can reveal that San Diego’s Comic-Con will host an Aliens reunion on Saturday, July 23. Both Cameron and Weaver will participate in the Q&A in the 6,500-seat Hall H, along with producer Gale Anne Hurd, Bill “Game Over” Paxton, Lance Henriksen, Paul Reiser, Michael Biehn, and the all-grown-up Carrie Henn.

.....

There will be much to discuss at Comic-Con, since not only is it a look back at a sci-fi classic, but Weaver is working with District 9 filmmaker Neill Blomkamp to create a new Aliens sequel, one that picks up where Cameron’s film left off and somewhat de-canonizes David Fincher’s Alien 3 (1992) and Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s Alien: Resurrection (1997). “It’s just as if, you know, the path forks and one direction goes off to three and four and another direction goes off to Neill’s movie,” Weaver says.

Well, that makes it pretty clear that this is indeed an alternate timeline as most of us has assumed.

The movie is in limbo and no one has any clue when production is actually going to start yet Weaver and co keep yammering on like it's already front and centre of the cameras already. 

They should just STFU and get on with making the Godammned movie.

-or-

Just STFU and stop pulling everyone's dicks about shit that aint happening.

This is getting stale very fast.

If this film does get made it'll probably turn out sh$t like the last one did if Siggy gets her way.

I'm pretty sure she explicitly said this already.

Weaver also talked about Alien 3 and Resurrection and how Blomkamp’s sequel relates to them, stating that the new film wouldn’t “wipe out” those films but “run parallel” to them.

Yeah, but some people on here were still trying to re-interpret that to mean Blomkamp won't ignore 3 and 4.

I haven't seen the "path forking" statement from Weaver before.

They're trying to keep this project alive. They're effectively trying to force Fox's hand. And it's working because it's getting a lot of positve press coverage.

There is no other way of interpreting that to me.  :laugh:

Just like how it got green-lit in the first place.

This'll be the weirdest timeline ever. Covenant, 3.2, Covenant sequel, Covenant sequel.

Blomkamp's current movie proposal is the very definition and epitome of overblown expectations that can never be met.

So we're officially getting an alternate continuity then? I know I asked this in another thread but... I just need to know.

So on the latest Perfect Organism podcast they stated that whilst they can't reveal their source, strong rumour is production on Alien5 will start very soon.

Hmmm.

As much as I don't want to see 3 & 4 simply dismissed the idea we can get to see Hicks/Newt/Ripley together on screen again is very welcome.

BWAHAHAAAAAA!!!!  What makes you so sure?  This is the version I want to see:

After being in hypersleep our 3 indomitable heroes emerge from their hypersleep, mysteriously aged 30 years for some strange reason.  Ripley gets out of bed and immediately straps a pulse rifle to one side of her zimmer frame.  A flame thrower is then gaffer taped to the other.   She's ready for action. One slow step at a time.  In the meantime, the younger, albeit scar faced Hicks takes a single sideling glance at her and says 'Nah.  I aint gonna hit that.' 

He turns and in the next hypersleep pod he watches Rebecca Jordan emerge.  She's in her mid 30's now and dirty old man Hicks finds himself drooling longingly at her slender form.  "Yeah."  That's more like it." He says under his breath.  "30... and still a virgin! "

*GUFFAWS!!1!!*

Yeah...  right.   Can't be any worse.

Has anyone heard anything - If it does happen if Newt is in it and if so whether Carrie Henn is interested in it?
