Update On: The Alien Sequel...Some Dreams Do Come True...

          Our greatest dreams are going to come true. Neill Blomkanp and Sigourney Weaver have confirmed that Ripley will be played by Sigourney Weaver and that the new Alien movie will come after Aliens (1986). This means we will all get to do something we've longed for...to pretend Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection don't exist...Here are some additional thoughts...
I can see it!!!

Hicks Must Come Back, and He must be Played By Michael Biehn:
Last we saw him, he was wounded by Xenomorph acid and resting on the Sulaco. Given that the movie will have to explain why everyone's aged so much, he should be ready for action (plus the concept art has him still wearing armor).

Newt Must Come Back, And That Can Be Someone New: 
I don't recall Carrie Henn doing a lot after Aliens, so we can all live without her. You may now debate who should take the role...Henn is 38 so it has to be someone about that age... Jessica Chastain?...Emily Blunt?

I hope they recast the same alien...
Bishop Must Come Back and He Must Be Played By Lance Henricksen:
Yes he's 74, but who cares, Arnold will be in his 70's if he keeps doing Terminators (which he has said he'll do, tangent...). Bishop was in bad shape after being being cut in half by the Xenomorph queen, but I'm sure he'll be fixed in no time...

Most Importantly...There MUST be Pulse Rifles:
This is one of the best guns in all of science fiction, I better see Ripley and Hicks running around with those...and flamethrowers...

           Now that Sigourney is back, the rest of the cast should follow. Anyhow...we can all breathe a sigh of relief...no one has to defend the whole second half of the Alien series anymore...
