Sigourney Weaver in Aliens

Neill Blomkamp Officially Directing Next Alien Movie

After some captivating concept art from the critically acclaimed new sci-fi director, Neill Blomkamp has officially told The Wrap that he will be directing an as yet untitled installment in the Alien franchise for 20th Century Fox.

Prometheus 2 is still coming out with Ridley Scott directing. Scott is also going to produce Blomkamp’s film, which will reportedly be set after the events of Prometheus 2.

Since apparently the project has only just been agreed upon, no script has been written yet. Also no word yet on whether franchise veterans like Sigourney Weaver will be on board, though Blomkamp has expressed a desire to work with her on an Alien film.

Check out Blomkamp’s personal announcement along with some of his concept work below. Blomkamp also has his third feature film Chappie coming out in March.


Um… So I think it’s officially my next film. #alien
