Do you remember last month when director Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium) released some really cool concept art for his ideas of a new Alien movie? Well now things have gotten really interesting.
In an interview with Collider, Blomkamp revealed that not only does the concept art represent a new Alien movie, bit it also represents a film he would very much like to make, and Fox almost sound like they are interested.
Blomkamp told Collider:
“There was a reason. I wanted to make that film. I still may make that film. [Laughs] It may happen. But I did it on my own time. Like when Chappie was winding down in post and I had available time, I started to work on it. It was also from talking to Sigourney [Weaver] during the making of this. I mean, I asked her about Alien all the time. Alien and Aliens are my favorite films. So I genuinely wanted to make that film, I came up with the story, I came up with way more art than I put out and I never officially spoke to Fox about it, but Fox wanted to make it. So, I kind of touched on it and I didn’t know what to do, and I didn’t know if I was just gonna go leave directing for a whole bunch of time and then I was like, ‘I might as well put some art out.’ But I may make it. I don’t know. That’s where it stands.”
Naturally I am now begging Fox to see sense, and you should do too…
