Neill Blomkamp teases a new project while he waits on Alien 5

Neill Blomkamp Alien 5

Neill Blomkamp instantly grabbed the attention of ALIEN fans early last year when he posted some concept art for an unofficial ALIEN sequel he was working on. 20th Century Fox took notice as well and wound up giving the project the official go-ahead and hiring Blomkamp to direct. It seemed like a dream come true to the CHAPPIE director but unfortunately Ridley Scott's ALIEN: COVENANT took precedence and Blomkamp's project was soon put on hold.

Although the ALIEN sequel is still alive, Sigourney Weaver in particular seems quite excited by it, Neill Blomkamp is moving forward with a new project, which he teased in a photo posted on Instagram.

 

Working on new things. Currently not alien

It's hard to make any conclusions based on this photo but I always show an interest in whatever Blomkamp is working on, I may not have loved every film he's made but the man does know how to design the hell out of a movie. Are we looking at a mutant of some sort? A monster? What type of film do you hope Neill Blomkamp is working on?

District 9 was fantastic. Elysium was actually fairly enjoyable, with some cool visuals. I actually kinda like Chappie because of the incredibly unusual casting of Die Antwoord - it had the feeling of the sort of sci-fi street punks you'd get in movies from the late 80s and early 90s - regardless I've not hated any of his movies so far and am happy to see whatever he's doing next. I've honestly no idea what his version of Alien will be like with the aging cast, but yeah I'm interested in that

I wouldn't say he's a favourite director of mine, but I'm still interested in the concepts he chooses to realise.

I still say he's the one who can ressurect/reboot the Terminator franchise.

They need to wait....

I loved District 9 as much as anyone, but the next two films were just brutally awful. He's hopelessly devoted to pushing his political philosophies in films (and does it with the subtlety of Zach Snyder), and he happily pushes the quality of the film to the back burner in order to do it. He needs to prove he can tell a story where the story is what counts, not his personal ideology. If that's what's most important to him, then that's fine but please don't give him an important apolitical

As much as I love District 9, he's beginning to look like a one trick pony. Elysium was OK at best and Chappie was garbage. He's got a great eye for production value but that's seemingly it.

Maybe they're just waiting to see how the new Prometheus film does and/or how Blomkamp's next film is received??

I do hope he gets started on it sooner than later since I think he would make for one hell of an 'Alien' flick.
