Appears they are making an Alien movie. ... d=rss_full
District 9 creator Neill Blomkamp gave sci-fi fans a brief glimmer of hope in January, when he teased that he had secretly been working on an Alien sequel that had (apparently) been scuttled. Well, it might be back on again -- Blomkamp is now claiming on Instagram (with support from Variety sources) that the project is "officially [his] next film." There's no word on the movie's plot or when it might hit theaters, but his sneak peek showed concept art that included Ripley in an alien-like suit, Weyland-Yutani's headquaters and the return of Aliens' Corporal Hicks.

Fox hasn't chimed in yet, but it's likely just a matter of time if this pans out. The real question is whether Blomkamp can return the franchise to its former glory. While he hit it big with District 9 and shows promise with his upcoming flick Chappie, the mixed reviews of Elysium suggest that Blomkamp doesn't automatically produce box office gold. And Variety notes that Alien director Ridley Scott won't be involved -- he's too busy with his follow-up to Prometheus, so it's all on the (relatively) new guy to make this work.

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

After seeing Prometheus, I'm glad Ridley Scot is not working on Alien.

And after seeing District 9 and Elysium, I am OK with Neil directing it. I seem to be in the minority with actually liking Elysium. hes such a good director and I trust him with this.

Please dont let this comment come back to bite me...
