Corporal Hicks himself, Michael Biehn, was at Sheffield Film and Comic Con earlier this week and, while giving talks, he spoke about Neil Blomkamp’s upcoming Alien 5.
And he revealed a few interesting things…
Firstly, while he has been talking to Blomkamp about the movie, he has not been offered a role or seen a script… although he remains confident he’ll be in it.
He confirmed that, as speculated before, the movie is a sequel to Aliens and will ignore Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection ala Superman Returns.
We’ve always assumed Biehn’s inclusion in the movie was a given, given the concept art above, but maybe it’s not so clean cut?
Whatever happens, we’ll keep you posted…
