Hopefully maybe Carpenter can set up a directing gig with Blumhouse now that he's on better terms with them. Back in 2014 he said: "We pitched a project to Blumhouse, and they turned us down. So I guess I won't be working with them".
Very cool teaser (even if it's just a teaser for the teaser).
I must say, though, I don't like this current trend of reboots/sequels that retcon but pick and choose what they want to keep and do away with (and I do realize my own hypocrisy here being that I've been a staunch supporter of Alien 5 with Ripley and Hicks).
