Neill Blomkamp teased and then officially announced his intentions to make a new Alien movie, and some new details about the plans for movie have surfaced.

In the video below from Sky Movies, Sigourney Weaver confirms her involvement in the project (she was part of the cast of Blomkamp's new film Chappie), and Blomkamp shares his intentions to ignore Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection. "I want this film to feel like it is literally the genetic sibling of Aliens," says Blomkamp. Not much else is known about Blomkamp's Alien regarding release date or additional cast members, but the director did confirm it is next project following Chappie, which releases March 6.

The Alien franchise is hugely influential on modern video games even if recent video game adaptations of the Alien franchise have been hit and miss.
