Update: Variety has confirmed that Fox has closed the deal, and that Neill Blomkamp is officially directing the next ALIEN!
It’s hard to know when a filmmaker is teasing his fans, or if he has ulterior motives, but Neill Blomkamp just told his Instagram followers that his next movie will in fact be a new Alien!
As shown below he posted an image with the caption, “Um… So I think it’s officially my next film. #alien”
The Alien hype began in January when Blomkamp posted Alien concept art he had been developing for an unsolicited pitch.
If there were one person who should be directing a new Alien movie it’s Blomkamp, a filmmaker who has emulated both Ridley Scott and James Cameron’s work in District 9, Elysium and Chappie, in theaters March 6, which reteams him once again with Alien franchise star Sigourney Weaver.
