Early this year, a dream came true for many Alien fans. A new Alien film with actress Sigourney Weaver, directed by Neill Blomkamp and produced by Ridley Scott. 

But recently, Blomkamp posted this on Twitter: 

"alien is kinda holding/ pending prometheus 2. So I shall be working on other things... as much as I love the xeno- and Lt ripley"

 So, what happened?

 Are two Alien films in development too much for 20th Century Fox?

That does not make any sense, because Marvel have much more movies in the development and releases two new movies every year and with their franchise building system/Marvel Cinematic Universe, they have great success.

So why does 20th Century Fox not do this with the Alien franchise? Furthermore both movies are set on different timelines, Prometheus 2 a.k.a. "Alien: Paradise Lost" follows Prometheus and plays years before the first Alien movie. Alien 5 has the original protagonist, Ellen Ripley, and is set 50-200 years after Alien.

 Additionally, many fans wanted a good ending of the Alien franchise, a final good movie that gives a conclusion worthy of the character of  Ellen Ripley and outshines "Alien Resurrection".

 Keep in mind, actress Sigourney Weaver does not get any younger and she stars in James Camerons planned Avatar sequels. So holding back Alien 5, could collide with Weavers schedule of Avatar 2 & 3.

 Further, when Alien 5 is shot shortly after "Alien: Paradise Lost", 20th Century Fox has the opportunity to reuse or slightly change already built sets and props for Alien 5. Lucasfilm/Disney doing this with Star Wars The Force Awakens/Rogue One to holding costs low.

 So Alien fans please sign this petition to show 20th Century Fox/Scott Free Productions/ Brandywine Productions, that two Alien movies are not too much Alien in the theaters and that we want Alien 5.
