Neill Blomkamp's Alien Will Be a Separate Entity From Prometheus 2



Okay, so Neill Blomkamp’s Chappie didn’t do so hot at the box office, but we’re still hoping the director will deliver with the next Alien movie, which he’ll be directing soon. As we’ve reported previously on TG, Blomkamp has made some amazing sketches in his spare time, and this lead to him reviving Alien at Fox with Sigourney Weaver.

Blomkamp has told Uproxx and Empire that the two sequels won’t crossover into each other. Ridley Scott will produce the Blomkamp Alien, and as Neill said, “One thing that makes me feel good about it is that Ridley is producing it. He likes the idea of what I want to make.”

He also told Scott the title he wants to use for the movie. “It’s kinda quite bold,” Blomkamp said. “But it gives away too much if I say the title.”

So the plans to make another Prometheus movie are apparently still in the works, and Blomkamp’s Alien should be up and running in the near future. Indeed, there could be at least two Alien inspired movies coming up in the future, just one good one is all we ask.
