An ‘Alien’ film is coming from the creator of ‘District 9′
District 9 creator Neill Blomkamp gave sci-fi followers a quick glimmer of hope in January, when he teased that he had secretly been engaged on an Alien sequel that had (apparently) been scuttled. Properly, it could be again on once more — Blomkamp is now claiming on Instagram (with help from Selection sources) that the challenge is “formally [his] subsequent movie.” There isn’t any phrase on the film’s plot or when it’d hit theaters, however his sneak peek confirmed idea artwork that included Ripley in an alien-like go well with, Weyland-Yutani’s headquaters and the return of Aliens‘ Corporal Hicks.
Fox hasn’t chimed in but, nevertheless it’s probably only a matter of time if this pans out. The actual query is whether or not Blomkamp can return the franchise to its former glory. Whereas he hit it huge with District 9 and exhibits promise together with his upcoming flick Chappie, the combined critiques of Elysium recommend that Blomkamp does not mechanically produce field workplace gold. And Selection notes that Alien director Ridley Scott will not be concerned — he is too busy together with his comply with-as much as Prometheus, so it is all on the (comparatively) new man to make this work.
