Neill Blomkamp Offers Alien 5 Update

Even before it was confirmed that Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium, Chappie) was directing the new Alien movie, he posted all kinds of concept art connected to the project on Instagram. Yesterday afternoon, he posted yet another piece of art featuring Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) and a one-eyed Cpl. Hicks (Michael Biehn). Blomkamp also confirmed his love for the project, and reported that the development process is “going very well.”

#alien going very well. Love this project

By all accounts, Blomkamp’s film will ignore the divisive sequels (Alien 3, Alien: Resurrection) that followed the celebrated first two entries in the series (Alien, Aliens). Currently scheduled for a 2017 release, the new film isn’t far enough along for any substantial news updates, but IGN did manage to get the director to speak at length about his take on the material and the process of landing the gig. You can watch that interview below.
