Neill Blomkamp updates us on his Alien film with new concept art

07.16.2015

The start of 2015 kicked off with some brilliant concept art for an ALIEN project that Neill Blomkamp was just "messing around with." Fans and (more importantly) Twentieth Century Fox took note, one thing led to another and now that ALIEN film will become a reality! Things have been pretty quiet on the pre-production front, but Blomkamp threw fans an update via his Instagram with a new concept art picture and a few choice words to assure us things are on the right track!

Neill Blomkamp on his ALIEN project:

#alien going very well. Love this project

While it's not much, it's promising. Concept art for Blomkamp's ALIEN film have excited fans more than most films do with an entire trailer, and that says a lot for how in-demand a great ALIEN sequel is. I'd say any news is good news, as I want this project to follow through like it's nobody business. Is it too soon to to hear about an official title and some casting news?!? At the very least, confirm that Michael Biehn is back as Hicks!

The South Korean flag on the soldier is very interesting. If Blomkamp is teasing the Weyland-Yutani Corporation conglomerate, then I'm guessing were getting the Yutani campaigns in space.

At least we know in this future South Korea still exists.
Excited for this project - gotta assume Blomkamp is doing everything he can not to balls it up.

So....

O'm guessing by the art that this won't be Alien 5 as much as the Alien 3 we should have gotten years ago? I'm down with that. Also i swear i've seen that concept art floating around before.

Aside from these artworks, I really want to know what the story will be like.

When I Met Lance Henrikssen about a month and a week ago. I asked him if he had been contacted for Alien 5. He said he had not and that Michael Biehn (at the time) still had not been contacted but that they were both game to return if asked.

Hmm

District 9 was amazing, no doubt, and Elysium had its moments but Chappie was just terrible.

All I ask for this new Alien film is absolute ZERO traces of Die Antwoord anywhere.

I thought Chappie was fine for what it is. Perfectly watchable non-sense. I do agree I hope to never see those guys on screen again, but I had to admit they had a warped watch-ability, even if it was car crash-like.

I know people may not have loved his last two films as much as District 9, but the guy is talented and am excited to see his imprint on the franchise.

I really don't understand the hate he gets. He gives us awesome R rated sci fi films with a message and because the message is obvious, people say he's hitting us over the head with it. They are as obvious as the original Robocop. Doesn't need to be secretly hidden. people need to chill out.

I like Elysium a lot but not much on Chappie. Still, Blomkamp shows he has a lot of vision.
