Neill Blomkamp, director of District 9 and the upcoming Chappie, revealed on his Instagram what appears to be him hinting at him potentially directing the next Alien movie. We were teased with this before, back in January, where he revealed teasing concept art for the return of Ripley. Would this be the same project, or something new?
As well as this taunting little Instagram picture, Variety seem to have gotten the low down on what Blomkamp is up to. It ought to be known that this movie will not be Prometheus 2 and is an entirely different project.
Allegedly, the movie will take place many years after the events of Prometheus (and presumably Prometheus 2) and both films, the new Alien and Prometheus, will be made by Scott Free, Ridley Scott’s production studio. Scott will also produce both films.
Are you excited for the chance to see a new Alien movie? Do you think it might be anything like the movie Blomkamp teased at the beginning of the year, or something new?
