Tell us what you think in the comments below and don’t forget to share.
Neill Blomkamp recently told Entertainment Weekly the following:
Those first two [Alien] films are probably my favorite films ever made. I didn’t know if it would ever happen. I just always wanted to participate in it if I was able to.
Over the years, I came up with a story for a film in that universe that I wanted to make. And then when I talked to her about her experience making those films and what she thought about Ripley and everything else, it informed and changed the film I wanted to make into something different.
It just sort of stuck with me. A year later, when post-production was winding down on ‘Chappie’, I started fleshing out the idea for a film that would contain Sigourney. Fox never knew. I just worked on it when I could. Before I knew it, I had this really awesome film with a lot of artwork and a lot of backstory. And then I didn’t know whether I was going to make it or not. So I just kind of sat on it for a while.
Additionally Blomkamp also revealed:
I want this film to feel like it is literally the genetic sibling of Aliens, so it’s Alien, Aliens and then this film.
