We have been following Neil Blomkamp's new idea for another ALIEN film in the form of his concept art (See HERE
) for quite some time.
Blomkamp has been hyping and building the suspense and wonder in the minds of fans raising many questions ever since.
Fox recently confirmed that Blomkamp will in fact be directing the next ALIEN Film with Ridley Scott in line to produce. Fox also says that Scott's PROMETHEUS 2 is still in development.
CHAPPIE star Sigourney Weaver has great interest in this new ALIEN idea. Blomkamp spoke to EW about the project and how having Weaver around has helped inspire this new ALIEN idea:
“It did have to do with having Sigourney on Chappie. It’s just something that I’ve always wanted to one day be a part of. Those first two [Alien] films are probably my favorite films ever made. I didn’t know if it would ever happen. I just always wanted to participate in it if I was able to.
Over the years, I came up with a story for a film in that universe that I wanted to make. And then when I talked to her about her experience making those films and what she thought about Ripley and everything else, it informed and changed the film I wanted to make into something different.
It just sort of stuck with me. A year later, when post-production was winding down on Chappie, I started fleshing out the idea for a film that would contain Sigourney. Fox never knew. I just worked on it when I could. Before I knew it, I had this really awesome film with a lot of artwork and a lot of backstory. And then I didn’t know whether I was going to make it or not. So I just kind of sat on it for a while."
Blomkamp adds “I want this film to feel like it is literally the genetic sibling of Aliens, so it’s Alien, Aliens and then this film.”
Sigourney Weaver recently stated “I would love to take Ripley out of, sort of, orbiting around outer space and give a proper finish to what was such an excellent story." Weaver is also very pleased with the idea of Blomkamp directing the new ALIEN film as the two have been collaborating together.
We will continue to follow the new ALIEN film as it continues to unfold.
