Despite how his earlier comments may have been interpreted, "Chappie" director Neill Blomkamp has now clarified that his "Alien" sequel won't undo the events "Alien 3" and "Alien: Resurrection." Instead, it seems, the new film simply won't have much to do with them.
"My favorites are the first two movies, so I want to make a film that’s connected to 'Alien' and 'Aliens,'" he told AlloCine, in the video below. "That’s my goal. I’m not trying to undo 'Alien 3' or 'Alien: Resurrection,' I just want it to be connected to Alien '1' and '2.'"
