After posting and promoting his Alien concept art on social media in January, Neill Blomkamp finally reveals that he will “officially” direct the next movie in the franchise.
Blomkamp has previously said in interviews that his take on any potential Alien 5 would involve Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley. Original star Sigourney Weaver even told MTV three days ago that Blomkamp shared his ideas for the Alien film with her during the filming of Chappie and that she would be open to starring in the film. “If it was someone as talented as Neill, I’d certainly listen,” she said.
This sequel will ignore Aliens 3 and imagines Hicks as being alive, sounds very promising!
