Neill Blomkamp made a big splash with his debut film District 9 in 2009. It was nominated for Best Picture in the process. I did not like it as many did, but did think his next release, Elysium, was more my style. His next film, Chappie, releases this March.
The director took to his Instagram to reveal that he was working on a new Alien film, which the studio may or may not have been aware of.
“Was working on this. Don’t think I am anymore. Love it though. #alien #xenomorph”
“They didn’t really even know I was working on it ha”
Alien is my favorite film franchise. I will even defend Alien 3 (bring it) and enjoyed Prometheus even if it wasn’t what everyone expected. After seeing Blomkamp’s concept art, I would give my first born future child to see this come to fruition. Check out the shots.
Looks like Blomkamp was going to act like the events of Alien 3 never happened with the return of Dwayne Hicks.
Weyland-Yutani seems to have got a hold of a derelict ship.
What is this obelisk-type monument in the warehouse?
Ripley finds a cocooned human.
An Alien queen makes her return.
Blomkamp’s desk with xenomorph head. Notice the Master Chief helmet possibly left over from his work on the Halo film.
The most interesting shot. Looks like Ripley in a xenomorph headdress. Note suggests it is actually the helmet of the space jockeys from the original Alien.
