I'm stoked to get out this weekend and check out Neill Blomkamp's CHAPPIE as I am a huge fan of the director's work. I absolutely loved DISTRICT 9 and, much like our F*ckin Black Sheep, found Blomkamp's ELYSIUM to be quality sci-fi. But what I'm really super stoked about is Blomkamp's upcoming ALIEN film, and now Ripley herself, Sigourney Weaver, has spoken out about the awesomeness that we're in for.

Speaking with Variety at the New York City premiere of CHAPPIE, Weaver shared that she's completely confident in Blomkamp and his vision, stating...

“I can’t think of a better director. He’s a real fan. I think he’ll be true to the world and take it in unexpected directions. It’s got a lot of sinew in it. It will certainly stand up to the others and probably break a lot of new ground as well.”

Weaver also stars in CHAPPIE and shared that during filming Blomkamp expressed his admiration for the first two films in her iconic sci-fi series, Ridley Scott’s ALIEN and James Cameron’s ALIENS. His enthusiasm for those films and his own vision for another entry excited Weaver, who stated...

“Suddenly it seemed so obvious that this would happen. We’ve been in touch the last year and he’s shared wonderful artwork.”

There isn't a doubt in my mind that Blomkamp will deliver something truly great with his ALIEN film and I can't wait to hear more details as the production comes together.

Extra Tidbit: I don't know about you, but I can't wait for Blomkamp's ALIEN film to arrive.

Neil Blomkamp certainly has great eyes for great science fiction storytelling. He'll make one heck of an Aliens film.
