District 9 Director Reveals Secret Art from Ditched Alien Sequel

Posted by Caroline Oliveira Monday, January 5, 2015
Aliens Xenomorph Ripley Horror Sequel Sigourney Weaver2015 began on a rather interesting note when Neill Blomkamp, District 9 and Elysium director, added more than a handful of gorgeous pictures to his Instagram and Twitter accounts. The pictures seemed to be concept art for a secret Alien sequel, which Blomkamp was allegedly working on without any studio's knowledge or approval.

The images depict Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) and Corporal Dwayne Hicks (Michael Biehn) working together again, a look at the mysterious Weyland Corporation, innovative takes on the infamous Xenomorph, the Alien Queen, and more.

Though it is not completely clear if the project, referred to as Alien Xeno, was indeed intended to be developed as a film, Blomkamp is a confirmed fan of the Alien franchise. Back in 2013, he told Comingsoon.net: 

"My favorite film of all time is Aliens. Period. James Cameron’s Aliens. What Elysium doesn’t have that I’d like to put into the next film is slime and eggs. It’s missing slime and eggs."

Blomkamp isn't clear if he ever pitched the project to Fox, but he did tell one of his Instagram followers: "Fox never said no."

Blomkamp's next film Chappie, about a robot that gains its own intelligence and emotions, will be released on March 6th.

Can we hope this will eventually become a real movie? We need something to make up for Prometheus. Right now. Desperately.
