Neill Blomkamp teases new, non-Alien movie

The director just took to Instagram to tease his newest project with an image of an in-development effect,...

Sigourney Weaver discusses Neill Blomkamp's Alien 5 plans

Last night, ALIEN franchise heroine Sigourney Weaver was in attendance for a big screen showing of ALIENS at New York City's Town Hall, and after the film she did a Q&A that our own Eric Walkuski was there to witness. The subject of Neill Blomkamp's ALIEN 5 , which is currently on hold while Ridley Scott makes his PROMETHEUS sequel ALIEN: COVENANT, inevitably came up, and while...

Neill Blomkamp shares Alien 5 concept art of Newt

The saga of Neill Blomkamp's ALIEN 5 began when the filmmaker shared concept art for the project on his social media accounts. It wasn't an official project at the time, the art was just something Blomkamp had commissioned as he daydreamed about making an ALIEN sequel. As soon as Fox heard that the maker of DISTRICT 9 wanted to work on their franchise, it became something...

Neill Blomkamp's ALIEN 5 started off as a fanboy dream project being developed by the filmmaker in his free time, without the knowledge of ALIEN franchise owners Twentieth Century Fox. Once Fox found out about it, however, the sequel seemed to be on the fast track to reality, with Sigourney Weaver set to reprise the role of series heroine Ripley and Michael Biehn expected to...

Neill Blomkamp's ALIEN sequel has been sentenced to the seventh circle of Production Hell, but that doesn't mean we can't talk about it! If we believe hard enough, it might just come back.

Neill Blomkamp in talks to direct sci-fi thriller The Gone World

While he's waiting to find out if he'll ever get his ALIEN sequel off the ground, director Neill Blomkamp is likely looking to fill his plate with other high-concept projects. One such project could be THE GONE WORLD , a sci-fi novel by Thomas Sweterlitsch.

Neill Blomkamp's Alien sequel delayed indefinitely

I saw this coming; I think we all probably did. While we all want as much ALIEN action as possible (at least, I think that's what we want?), there isn't room in 20th Century Fox's universe for two concurrent films dealing with the dastardly xenomorphs. So it goes, then, that Ridley Scott's PROMETHEUS sequel - ALIEN: PARADISE LOST - has taken precedence over Neill Blomkamp's...

Michael Biehn confirms talks with Neill Blomkamp about Alien 5

The Sheffield Film and Comic Con was held this past weekend, and one of the guests in attendance was Michael Biehn, who played the role of Corporal Dwayne Hicks in the 1986 classic ALIENS . Given that Hicks was featured, older and scarred, in the concept art that landed Neill Blomkamp the job of directing a new installment in the ALIEN franchise (despite the fact that the...

Neill Blomkamp's Alien movie may cure Sigourney Weaver's AVP depression

The story of how Neill Blomkamp's upcoming ALIEN sequel came into being is pretty awesome. In his downtime, a filmmaking fanboy commissions concept art for a dream project sequel to a series he grew up a fan of, shares some of it online, and suddenly he has made a deal with the studio to turn his ideas into an actual movie. I haven't been a big fan of Blomkamp's work to...
