Thank you Michael and Sigourney for continually stoking this fire. I want the film to happen, but just can't picture where it would fit release-date wise.
That just seems so messy to me.
I could picture:
Covenant - 2017
Covenant Sequel - 2019
Covenant Sequel - 2021
Alien 5 - 2023
And by that time Sigourney would be 74, and Michael would be 67. Which is fine, because Harrison is 74 and is doing a new Indiana Jones movie. Additionally, the age thing has never been an issue with me, so it's mystifying why it's an issue with others. A) They're acting B) They don't have to be in action-heavy roles or scenes C) Enlist a young, A-list actress for Newt to accompany them, a'la Winona Ryder being paired with Sigourney on Resurrection.
The only thing is that alcohol clearly has done a number on Michael. Seems like he would have trouble reading lines. That could be awkward.
