Sci-fi fans rejoiced this week when Sigourney Weaver spoke about the direction of Alien 5.
The Alien series is one of the most popular film franchises with four main Alien movies, a prequel, and multiple spin-offs on and off screen.
Weaver, 66, told Entertainment Weekly that the path forks after Aliens, which turns 30 next week, and leads to the 5th film in the series.
Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection received significantly less praise from fans and critics than the first two films: Alien and Aliens.
District 9 director Neill Blomkamp is set to direct Alien 5.
