Ridley Scott

As Ridley Scott completes his work on the upcoming The Martian, reports are suggesting that Prometheus 2 could be his next project. The sequel would be the follow-up to his Alien prequel which saw Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender flying towards the Engineer’s homeworld in an attempt to find out why they want to destroy humanity. Earlier this month, it was being reported that Scott would actual begin filming the movie next January, although it wasn’t clear how this might affect production for Neill Blomkamp‘s Alien 5.

Now we are learning that Prometheus 2 could have a huge affect on the production of the next Alien movie. More on this story below.

Chappie movie review
Chappie

Cast: Sharlto Copley, Dev Patel, Watkin Tudor Jones, Yolandi Visser, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Sigourney Weaver, Hugh Jackman
Columbia Pictures
Rated R | 120 Minutes

In the near future, Johannesburg is patrolled by a mechanized police force. The creator, Deon Wilson (Dev Patel), wants to take robotics to the next level by creating a sentient droid that can think and feel for itself.

Enter Scout Unit 22 (Sharlto Copley), a banged-up police droid scheduled for disposal. Against orders from his boss, Michelle Bradley (Sigourney Weaver), Deon creates a firmware update that gives the damaged unit consciousness, turning the hardened police droid into a newborn child.

Before Deon can nurture and enlighten his creation, a gang of criminals (Watkin Tudor Jones, Yolandi Visser, Jose Pablo Cantillo) steals the robot. In the hands of these wannabe gangsters, the droid – nicknamed Chappie – is molded and manipulated into becoming an “Indestructible Robot Gangster #1.”

ELYSIUM

Given how exciting Neill Blomkamp‘s District 9 was, the anticipation for Elysium was pretty high. While his second directorial effort explored social themes with a sci-fi twist and had those same striking visuals, it wasn’t nearly as strong has his first. The 2013 film was met with mixed reviews, had a weak script, and underperformed at the box office, but wasn’t a total box office bomb.

While on the Chappie press tour, Blomkamp opened up about some of the faults in Elysium, and admits that he “f*cked up.” Hit the jump for more.

Alien 3

Neill Blomkamp talked a little bit about his planned Alien film during the Chappie press tour, saying that he wants to make it a “genetic sibling.” Confirming that his film is indeed part of the Alien canon, the District 9 director said that it goes “Alien, Aliens, and then this film.” According to him and star Sigourney Weaver, the new chapter in the Alien franchise would give Ripley’s story a proper ending. These comments led to the speculation that his film would ignore Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection.

While that “proper ending” would lead some to believe that it would undo the last two films of the Alien franchise, Blomkamp clarified his previous comments, saying that he’s “not trying to undo Alien 3 or Alien: Resurrection” and said that his goals are to “make a film that’s connected to Alien and Aliens.” Hit the jump for more.

Neill Blomkamp Alien Concept Art

When looking at the entire film catalog of the Alien franchise, Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection are the weakest of the four. So Neill Blomkamp hopes that his new Alien film will be something that can disregard those final two films, and be a proper installment by acting as a “genetic sibling” to the first two movies.

Blomkamp amazed us all with the concept art that he released via Instagram, and the District 9 director then revealed that he could make the movie if he wanted to before it was eventually confirmed that he would indeed helm a brand new Alien film next. But it wasn’t clear whether Sigourney Weaver‘s Ripley character would be involved or not.

While making the press rounds for Chappie, Blomkamp and film star Weaver talked about the new Alien and confirmed that the movie would feature Ripley after all, acting as closure to her story. Hit the jump for more and to see a video of the two talking about the movie.

Sigourney Weaver The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon

News broke on Wednesday that Neill Blomkamp will be directing a new Alien movie, a project he teased last month with concept art. After fans of the Alien film franchise responded very favorably to the director’s vision, Blomkamp revealed that Fox would make the film with him, but that he was the actual hold-out for it.

Later that night after the news broke that the District 9 director was officially on board for a new Alien movie, Sigourney Weaver appeared on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon in an episode that was recorded earlier that day. But, knowing the history of the project, host Jimmy Fallon did bring up the subject of a new Alien movie during the interview with the star, who was promoting her new film, Chappie, which was directed by Blomkamp.

Check out the video here below, where Weaver talks about Chappie, as well as a new Alien movie. Also included is another part of the interview where the actress recounts seeing the Beatles when she was 12 years old.

Neill Blomkamp Alien Concept Art Header

The internet caught fire when District 9 and Elysium, and director Neill Blomkamp shared some concept art for a movie set in Ridley Scott‘s 1979 classic Alien universe, leading many to think he was, or at one point had been, working on a new movie in the franchise.

More recently he confirmed that he’s always wanted to make an Alien movie, and when there was some down time during post production on his latest movie, Chappie, he began working on the concept art, inspired in part by one of his Chappie stars and original Alien bad-ass Sigourney Weaver. Even more surprising, he revealed that if he wanted to make the movie, he could.

Now it appears, believe it or not, that that’s exactly what Blomkamp is planning to do for his next project.

Neill Blomkamp Alien Concept Art Header

Early last month some amazing concept art was released by director Neill Blomkamp, whose movies include District 9, Elysium, and the upcoming Chappie.

The concept art was for a new movie in the Alien series that Blomkamp was developing once upon a time, but was apparently not working on anymore, depressing as that was for the many fans of the movies who reacting with overwhelming positivity to the images.

While Blomkamp might not be actively developing a new Alien movie right this very moment, it turns out that the possibility of the movie becoming a reality is not as out of the question as it was once thought to be. In fact, according to the director, if he wanted to make it, he could. See what he had to say below.
