The original Alien director Ridley Scott has been asked by French film blog Allocine about Neill Blomkamp’s Alien 5 movie and he suggests it’s no longer an active project at all.
“I don’t think it will ever see the light of day. There was never a script. Just an idea that evolved from a dozen or so pages. I had to participate as producer, but it didn’t go farther because Fox decided it didn’t want to do it. As far I was concerned, I had already done Prometheus and I was working on Covenant.“
Sorry, Aliens fans, but it’s all about slim chances now. In a response to a fan question about Alien 5, director Neill Blomkamp says that the chances of him going to get this shelved sequel done have been downgraded to slim.
Well, that’s a bit shit, particularly compared to encouraging comments from both Sigourney Weaver and Michael Biehn at 30th-anniversary panel that was held for Aliens at San Diego Comic-Con.
If this report is accurate, Prometheus 2 is going into production in the first quarter of 2016 (under Scott’s direction),
A month ago, District 9 director Neill Blomkamp posted some Alien sequel concept art, but said the extra-terrestrial reboot was likely abandoned. Obviously, he was wrong about it as the images have generated the most positive response from Fox.
District 9 and Elysium director Neill Blomkamp yesterday posted several concept images of the Alien movie he was secretly working on that include depictions of Sigourney Weaver‘s ‘Ripley,’ xenomorphs, Michael Biehn‘s Corporal Hicks and more.
