Neil Blomkamp's Alien 5 has finally revealed a much rumoured casting choice in announcing that Carrie Henn will be reprising her role as Newt from Aliens (1986). She will be joining Michael Biehn as Corporal Hicks despite both characters having died between the events of Aliens and Alien 3 (1992). Many seem happy to ignore the main canon in favour of reviving these characters but we'll have to wait for Ridley Scott to release his own "Alien: Covenant" before getting a chance to see the grown up Newt and Hicks in action.
What do you think of the decision? Is the Alien universe becoming too complicated?
