Neill Blomkamp Confirmed for New ‘Alien’ Movie

Pardon me while I change my shorts; I had a feeling this was coming and now it is; ladies and gents I think Ripley is back!

Variety is reporting that “20th Century Fox has closed a deal with director Neill Blomkamp to develop a new “Alien” movie.

Sources say the untitled sci-fi project is a separate from the “Prometheus” sequel which Fox is still making with Ridley Scott

Blomkamp, who directed “District 9″ and the upcoming Sony project “Chappie,” had been teasing the project in recent months but said the movie, which starred “Alien” veteran Sigourney Weaver, had been abandoned.

But on Wednesday Blomkamp confirmed it was “officially” back on.

“So I think this is officially my next film,” he confirmed on Instagram.

It’s unclear whether Scott or Weaver are attached to the tentpole.”
