Director Neill Blomkamp shares concept art for unofficial Alien project

01.02.2015

Alien Neill Blomkamp

As far as we know, Neill Blomkamp isn't attached to an ALIEN movie, but yesterday the DISTRICT 9 and ELYSIUM director posted several pieces of very interesting concept art featuring xenomorphs, Sigourney Weaver's Ripley, Michael Biehn's Corporal Hicks and more.

While one of the images is captioned "Was working on this. Don't think I am anymore. Love it though" Blomkamp later tweeted (although it isn't a verified account), "Ps this has nothing to do with the studio. I just feel like I might do something else instead. In which case why not show some work" and "they didn't really even know I was working on it ha."

Check them out:

But what does Neill Blomkamp mean when he says Fox didn't really even know he was working on it? He also says it has nothing to do with the studio, so maybe he just did it for shits and giggles, or perhaps he was going to pitch an idea for a new ALIEN movie and changed his mind. There's also a chance the concept art wasn't for a film, and instead was for a different type of project, like an ALIEN video game. What are your thoughts on this ALIEN concept art?

Neill Blomkamp's CHAPPIE starring Hugh Jackman and Sharlto Copley opens on March 6, 2015.

I question why he would just release this. More than likely there were no ulterior motives, but if Chappie tanks, I wouldn't be surprised if he's suddenly attached to an Alien film with Fox.

This would be awesome. Just make Alien 3 and Resurrection the nightmares Ripley had in hypersleep. The pods malfunctioned and everyone aged before they woke up. Ripley, Hicks, Newt and Bishop as the Alien-slaying family they should have been...

I think it's safe to say that this would have been way better than Prometheus, whatever it was.

I would totally get behind what ideas are being thrown out here.

But, fuck. Michael Biehn, what are you doing these days? This is what you should be gunning for. Not The Scorpion King 4. What the fuck are you doing..............?

game

This concept would make a brilliant game. The virtual space would also allow this idea to flourish since it wouldn't be trapped by the movie continuities. Please make this happen Blomkamp!

As an alien movie part 3 is a decent one but the worst thing about it is that it takes all of the tension and excitement away from watching Aliens, i cant look at it the same way anymore with the knowledge everything they do in part 2 doesnt matter. Maybe i would be more at peace with it had it happened in the 3 act of the (part 3)movie(hicks and/or newt dying)

Would also be cool if at the end of part 3 ripley sacrifies herself in order to save Newt and let her take over the franchise with

Well it's too late for that, they've been that since the very beginning. (rape allegory, abuse of corporate power etc)

Isn't this the same guy who said he wouldnt do Star Wars/Superhero/Star Trek movies because he would rather do his own thing?

Yeah.

First of all, I didn't say he was a loser.

And second of all if he did change his mind it's probably because Elysium under performing financially and critically .

The timing of this doesn't bode well for his confidence in Chappie if you ask me.

Make it happen

I'm already 1000000 times more excited for this then i am for prometheus 2
Do it whatever it takes and ignore part 3 and 4 of the franchise, make a true sequel to aliens.

Would definitely be excited if he were to direct his own Alien entry if he were given the chance.

If Hicks made another appearance on film, that would be awesome. Biehn was a great action star.

Wow, these artworks look pretty good though they are basically "Aliens" fan artworks. But I'm intrigued with Ripley merges with Alien. He might want to do this as a continuation of Alien: Resurrection.

Hmm my first thought was infiltration suit as opposed to hybrid, but I like your thinking. I thought the most interesting part of Resurrection was the genetic manipulation - especially the failed attempts at making a viable hybrid, the most disturbing part of the movie, imo. It would be great if they explored the morality of it all.

Thanks, man. I was thinking since Ripley in Alien Resurrection was a clone, she could well be mutated into a Xenomorph herself. Maybe her DNA was mutating or unstable or something.
