Now that Neill Blomkamp’s Alien movie is officially happening, we can start the rampant speculation about casting and plot and all the fun little details that go along with a project like this. As this is going to be a pretty big deal, you have to imagine that all kinds of people in Hollywood are going to be interested in joining the party, and one star has already thrown his hat into the ring. Comedian Louis C.K. says he wants to be cast and then killed off in the next Xenomorph adventure. We can totally get behind that.
It wouldn’t be a true Alien movie without franchise stalwart Sigourney Weaver (we don’t really count the Alien Vs. Predator movies), and we certainly hope that she’ll return. She worked with Blomkamp on his latest, Chappie, and reportedly was part of the inspiration for his idea for the film. We don’t know yet if she’ll be back (on potential report says this could be a prequel, so it’s hard to imagine how she fits in), but she talked about the possibility on The Tonight Show and dropped the bit about Louis C.K.
