In the immortal words of Darth Vader, “Nooooooooooo!” (Sorry. Couldn’t resist.) Yesterday, District 9director Neill Blomkamp released concept art on Instagram from an abandoned Alien project he was working on. He said, “Was working on this. Don’t think I am anymore. Love it though. #alien #xenomorph” Wait, what? “Woulda rocked. Was a mental stroll into the world Ridley Scott created.” I … can’t … “I may go back to it. I love the world.” Me, too, Neill Blomkamp! Go back!
He also told one commenter on Instagram, “Fox never said no.” The film looks like it would have been set after Aliens but would ignore the third film. We may have gotten a look inside Weyland Corporation. Sorry to break your heart this early in the year.
