New Alien Movie Confirmed With Director Neill Blomkamp

XenomorphGreat news for xenomorph fans! Neill Blomkamp has been (re?)-tapped to direct a new Aliens feature under Ridley Scott’s production company. Blomkamp has been teasing his involvement online and some details came out back in January from Io9 when it appeared it wasn’t going to happen.

The untitled sci-fi project is separate from Prometheus 2, which Fox is still making with Ridley Scott.

Excerpt and more details from Variety:

Blomkamp, who directed “District 9″ and the upcoming Sony feature “Chappie,” had been teasing the project in recent months but said the extra-terrestrial reboot was likely abandoned. It was supposed to star “Alien” veteran Sigourney Weaver.

But on Wednesday Blomkamp confirmed the tentpole was back on track at Fox.

“So I think this is officially my next film,” he confirmed on Instagram.

It’s unclear whether Weaver is still attached to the movie.

    I can’t wait to see it. I hope it’s good. But I’ll probably see it no matter the reviews.
