Neill Blomkamp's sci-fi film "Alien 2" will push through, after Ridley Scott's "Prometheus 2."

"The Terminator" actor Michael Biehn is rumored to play the role of Dwayne Hicks in Blomkamp's upcoming project. In his interview with Empire Online, Biehn and another source said that the film's postponement is due to Scott's request of running it after his film "Prometheus 2," along with the film being "handled with care."
