Newt Returns In New “Alien 5” Concept Art

It’s April 26th, a day that 20th Century Fox is trying to push as a regular day to celebrate the “Alien” franchise as it fits in with the planetary designation LV-426.

To mark the occasion, filmmaker Neill Blomkamp has taken to Instagram to reveal some new concept art from his in the works direct sequel to “Aliens” which will ignore “Alien 3” and “Alien Resurrection” and sees the return of not just Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) but also Hicks (Michael Biehn) and 27-year old version of Newt – the woman that the new art illustrates below.

The project was put on hold so Ridley Scott could do “Alien: Covenant” which is currently shooting in Sydney, Australia. Scott will produce Blomkamp’s take which already has a completed script.
