Sigourney Weaver says fifth ‘Alien’ movie will ignore what happened in the third and fourth films

Weaver will also be part of a 30th anniversary reunion of the cast of 1986's 'Aliens'

Sigourney Weaver has said the fifth Alien movie will ignore what happened in the third and fourth films.

The actress admitted earlier this year that she would be “really surprised” if Neill Blomkamp’s sequel never came to fruition and now she has shared more details about the project.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Weaver said: “It’s just as if, you know, the path forks and one direction goes off to three and four and another direction goes off to Neill’s movie.

“I always wanted to complete this story and it wasn’t really until Neill and I started talking that I said, ‘This is why we waited however many years it’s been.'”

Weaver will also take part in a 30th anniversary reunion of the cast of 1986’s Aliens at San Diego’s Comic-Con event on July 23.

As Consequence Of Sound reports, she will be joined by director James Cameron, producer Gale Anne Hurd, Bill Paxton, Lance Henriksen, Paul Reiser, Michael Biehn and Carrie Henn.
