There were supposed to be sequels to Alien Resurrection. Sometime after the release of Alien: Resurrection, Joss Whedon had written a script for Alien 5 where the story took place on Earth.

Plot

Unknown. They would likely be taking place on Earth.

Why They Were Cancelled

  1. Alien Resurrection wasn't well-received by critics, audience or fans alike like Alien 3, although Resurrection does have a critical improvement over the third film.
  2. In addition, the sequels were cancelled after Resurrection underperformed at the box-office.
  3. Sigourney Weaver was not interested in the setting for the films, but has remained open to reprising her role as Ellen Ripley for a fifth installment on the condition that she likes the story.
