Great news, I like this guys work and have wanted to go back to that universe for a long time. As long as the canon of the first movie is preserved,
not concerned with whatever is left behind, including Jim`s.

Blomkamp is a genius. He knew he was working with Ripley for enough time on Chappie to convince her to sign up. Bam! Ive got Ripley, the gravitas I need to go to Fox.
Then he produces some concept artwork and lets the online world work its magic. Bam! Fox hands over the keys. Brilliant.

I always thought this is something JJ Abrams would try and pull off to get the Blade Runner keys.

We had it all wrong, its based around Jones`s brother Barry, one mean son of a bitch. Bring it on!

Can't say I'm sorry to see ADI lose out on this one. I'm not even a fan of their work on Alien3, let alone the three travesties that followed.

WETA could really bring some magic to the table while still keeping the grittiness of the first two films.

Finally, this should free up SRS to make Prometheus 2 as free of "dragons" (his word) as he wants without fanboys complaining.

I didn't even think about the WETA connection! Outstanding. Cool

SRS to EP. this is getting very interesting.

So, talk about a man getting control over his stuff. SRS is now EP on the new BR project, the new Alien project and either EP or Director of a possible three more Prometheus movies.
Do not tell me that the three universe`s wont be somehow inter related regardless of timelines. SRS has effectively taken control of the entire conglomerate. Very cool.

Just thinking outside the box a little here...as no official storyline is known, what if the project doesn't mean just dumping 3 and 4 but 2 as well? The Hick`s artwork may just have been an internet sweetener. As SRS is taking over as an EP with the gravitas of a black hole, he might see "the franchise" as beginning and ending with Alien. Thoughts?

Also, I cant get my head around the film being called Alien 5 if any of the previous versions are left behind, which also dilutes the first paragraph of this post. Excited to hear more.

Interesting that he's taking an umbrella approach on the franchise that he first created. No wonder he has no time for BR...

More recent quotes from NB make it clear he isn't ditching A3 and A:R, but it's anyone's guess as to what he has planned. He did also say it won't be clone Ripley, so this isn't picking up where A:R left off.

Looking at the X-Men and Terminator franchises (shudder) may give us some insight.

Still not sure why if Blomkamp is such a huge fan of Aliens he thinks half of his face got melted off !?

Alien : Paradise Lost

Game. Set. Match. Sir Ridley Scott.

Disappointing news for those who just want to see more movies from this universe and take them on their merit upon release but the journo above pretty much hits the mark.
