A scooper sent Cinescape an inside up date on the rumored ALIEN 5. This is what he had to report:
"Went in on an casting call for CBS's NUMBERS this week, and to my surprise, Ridley Scott - exec.producer- was there.
I got to shake the man's hand after my read (he wasn't involved in casting - not these small parts anyway) and asked him about an online rumor about an Alien 5.
So here's the deal, straight from the horse's mouth. "I'd love to - and we're talking", he said. I asked him would it star the originals and he said Sigourney's on-board, and he hopes Lance Henriksen might be interested too. But bottom line "Too early to even speculate...we haven't even finished the script yet".
