For Neil Blomkamp's new Aliens sequel.........
Will we see the people running Weyland and Yutani in board rooms?
Evil Suit and tie executives, blood sucking lawyers, and corporate fish heads?
Will Burke be mentioned?
Will they still be colonizing planets?
Lastly, will we see a statue, or an oil painting Peter Weyland portrait on the wall of the offices somewhere?

I think a lot depends on what changes are made to Blomkamps ideas...
His first idea and concept Work Ripley and Hicks did not look to much older.... the movie would have been set no more than 10 years after Aliens.... but i am sure they said it was set to run not long after the events of Aliens?
This has changed now
But there are a few interesting things shown in the Concept Work that he first did.... there is a indoor location that was vast in size.... and we had a Queen on the loose, well the location had a Oriental Look to me...
Reminded me of being set in a Japanese/Korean Garden
Then we have this Concept Work
We see Oriental looking Military Personnel with the Korean Flag.
So these Two images to me look like maybe whichever company had got its hands on the Engineer Ship (maybe Derelict) are not Weyland-Yutani.
Maybe they are Yutani or a off-shoot of that company?
But we dont know how much Weyland are involved in Alien 5 as the concept work does not tell the full story but it seemed like a Oriental Company plays a big part in his Alien 5... well his first concept and ideas for the movie.

You do bring up some good discussion points! I do believe they'll include the suit-ties business folks similar to the end scene in Alien Vs. Predator: Requiem. After all, it IS a sequel to ALIENS!
Anyway I love this post, upvoted!!!
Ah, yes that is very interesting! Perhaps its Weyland Yutani's competition, Asia probably has a big name in the space industry.
