Neill Blomkamp Making New Alien Movie


Over the last few months, District 9 director Neill Blomkamp has been posting images of a supposedly dead reboot of the classic sci-fi horror franchise Alien. He released a bunch of concept art, including the image above, and it looked like it could have been really cool. Now, though, it looks like we’re going to get to see how cool it will actually be.

On Wednesday, Blomkamp posted the following image on his Instagram, with sources at Variety confirming the news that Blomkamp is making a new Alien movie…

Um… So I think it’s officially my next film. #alien

According to the sources at Variety, the new Alien movie will take place some years after the events of the Prometheus sequel, with original Alien director Ridley Scott producing both films through Scott Free, his production company.

While the concept art Blomkamp released did feature Sigourney Weaver reprising her role as Ellen Ripley, there’s no word on whether or not she’ll be reprising her role for the as-of-yet unnamed project.
