District 9 Helmer to Direct Next Alien Sequel
In space, no one can hear you scream… for excitement!
Neill Blomkamp has officially signed on to direct and develop a sequel to the original Alien franchise.
The imaginative filmmaker is a big fan of the original ‘Alien’ (1979) and even cast Sigourney Weaver in his upcoming sci-fi action drama Chappie.
Ridley Scott’s Scott Free Productions will produce the project for 20th Century Fox.
Neill Blomkamp broke the news on his official Instagram account and posted a new Xenomorph image inspired by H. R. Giger’s ‘Alien’ concept art.
“Um… So I think it’s officially my next film #alien,” he wrote.
