    Here’s some news that’s bound to please fans of 80s sci-fi action! Michael Biehn has confirmed that he’s set to reprise the role of Corporal Duane Hicks from 1986’s Aliens in Neill Blomkamp’s as-yet-untitled Alien sequel.

    Posting on Instagram in response to a comment about his scheduled appearance at Sheffield Film and Comic-Con in the UK, Biehn stated that, “I’m not looking at scheduling conflicts with the Sheffield Comic Con, due to my contract for Aliens to begin filming during then.”


    Fan favourite Hicks was featured in the original concept art that Blomkamp posted for his then-unofficial Alien sequel, which has since been given the greenlight from Fox and will also see Sigourney Weaver back as Ripley.

    Neill Blomkamp? Isn't he the guy that made that mess District 9 with the crawdads from outerspace?
    This'll be a real winner. :facepalm:

    Hicks was just a secondary character in Aliens.

    I hate how movies try to throw in shit just for nostalgia factor.

    I thought Hicks died in Aliens? The only ones who made it out were Ripley and Newt?

    I read somewhere that he made the studio pay up the nose just to use his picture for a few seconds in that film because he hated their script.
