According to actor Michael Biehn, he will reprise his role of battle-scarred 'Corporal Dwayne Hicks' for director Neill Blomkamp's new "Alien" movie, prepping for a July 2015 start, picking up after the events of James Cameron's "Aliens":
"It's official, " said Biehn. "I will be reprising my role as 'Cpl Dwayne Hicks'. With the go-ahead, Hicks will return with 'Ripley' in mid 2017. Perhaps Hicks and Ripley will eventually get to second base in this one..."
Corporal Dwayne Hicks was a member of the military branch 'USCM' ('United States Colonial Marines') that was deployed aboard the 'Sulaco' to investigate the sudden loss of contact with the colonists.
Hicks and the rest of his squad were under the command of 'Lieutenant Gorman', with two civilian advisors including 'Weyland-Yutani' rep 'Carter J. Burke' and 'Lt. Ellen Ripley'.
Dwayne Hicks was one of only four survivors who made it off 'Acheron' alive. 'Newt', Ripley and Hicks all went into 'hypersleep' for the journey back to Earth.
