There are a lot of questions about the, how I like to put it, comeback of the Aliens franchise for now known as Alien 5. One of the biggest questions is: Will the badass, Alien butt kicker Sigourney Weaver return as Ellen Ripely? The answer is yes. Sigourney Weaver has stated that she would love to comeback as Ellen Ripley as long as the script is to her liking. This caused a script wrote for Alien 5 that would have been set on earth to be "thrown out". Sigourney Weaver hopes to have Alien 5 return to the planet that we saw in the first film Alien. She was confirmed to be coming back as Ellen Ripley in early 2015.

Another question that some people have been asking is: Who is going to be the director? The director is going to be Neill Blomkamp, the director of District 9 and Chappie. Neill stated that he had been "wanting to make an Alien film for like years and years." Neill also posted some interesting pieces of concept art on his Instagram, here is a piece of concept art he posted that really caught my attention.

Another question that fans have been asking is: Will this movie take place after Aliens: Resurrection or before? Your answer is before. Neill Blomkamp stated that Alien 5 will tie into the first 2 Alien movies.

Another question that I have heard people asking about is: Will there be more Alien films after Alien 5? The answer to your question is yes. Neill Bomkamp confirmed plans for more than one Alien sequel/prequel.

So as we await Alien 5's official title and release date let's kick back, relax and enjoy the previous movies.
