Neill Blomkamp's Alien Confirmed

Posted by The Daily Zombies Thursday, February 19, 2015

It is now official. The next Alien film (that is not part of Prometheus) will be directed by none other than Neill Blomkamp. 

Earlier last month, we pondered over the eventual course of the Alien film franchise when concept art images of a proposed new take on the material conjured by Neill Blomkamp were released online by the celebrated South African-Canadian film-maker. While we eventually came to the conclusion of the "could have, would have" nature of what seems to be a genuinely cool new take of the franchise, little do we truly understand how wrong we got.

Because few hours ago, Blomkamp, in his typical manner, made this stunning announcement via his Instagram.

Indeed, lo and behold, the director for the long-gestated fifth chapter of the seminal sci-fi epic film series has been announced and we can now only imagine the powers of the online community. By sheer fan enthusiasm in response to Blomkamp's release of the concept art images, the unthinkable has taken place: Backed by Ridley Scott's Scott Free Production in collaboration with 20th Century Fox, the new Alien film will also be produced by Scott with the setting taken place many years after the events of Prometheus 2. 

With the imagery of the concept art still vivid in our memory, we are pretty certain that the road to Alien 5 will be an intriguing one. Sigourney Weaver returning to the franchise as Ripley, and Michael Biehn back as Hicks? Sign us up already.
