It's your money. What are you going to do?
Leave Sigourney Weaver and Neill Blomkamp in the dust.
Post Resurrection (All but Retconning AR) sequel Directed by an Auteur that has a vision for sexually charged horror film,
You could even set The Cold Forge after AR/A3, for instance.
Denis Villeneuve, Christopher Nolan, Tim Burton, Peter Jackson or Alex Garland.
Hell even David Fincher.
(Annihilation, Under The Skin etc)
Go nuts, do your own thing.
You can even act like AR, doesn't exist- it doesn't matter.
I don't have a passion for established continuity- not really- I'd clearly throw AR out in a heartbeat.
You don't necessarily need to retcon it, but ignoring it or contradicting it wouldn't harm anything.
I have a passion for Alien³ because it's bold, it's not a retread which is all franchises have become in recent years.
