Neill Blomkamp‘s Alien movie may very well be coming real soon with Sigourney Weaver looking to “finish what she started.” Blomkamp has done movies like District 9 (2009) and Elysium (2013) so he is definitely a man with a proven sci-fi track record. I would love to see this movie with Weaver destroying the Xenomorph home planet, that would be awesome. Show some love if you want to speed up this process so the studios know we want it real bad.
There was a reason," he tells Collider in response to being asked about the aforementioned art. "I wanted to make that film. I still may make that film. [Laughs] It may happen. But I did it on my own time. Like when ‘Chappie’ was winding down in post and I had available time, I started to work on it. It was also from talking to Sigourney [Weaver] during the making of this. I mean, I asked her about ‘Alien’ all the time.
" ‘Alien’ and ‘Aliens’ are my favorite films," he adds. "So I genuinely wanted to make that film, I came up with the story, I came up with way more art than I put out and I never officially spoke to Fox about it, but Fox wanted to make it. So, I kind of touched on it and I didn’t know what to do, and I didn’t know if I was just gonna go leave directing for a whole bunch of time and then I was like, ‘I might as well put some art out.’ But I may make it. I don’t know. That’s where it stands.
