Neil Blomkamp Talks Possibility of ‘Alien’

by Lynn Sorel

Neil Blomkamp, recently posted concept art for an ‘Alien’ film that he wanted to make, spoke to ‘Uproxx’ about the art and the prospect of a film. The ‘District 9’ director opened up saying,  “I’ve been wanting to make an Alien film for like years and years. Speaking to Sigourney Weaver, when we were doing Chappie, she set off a bunch of thoughts in my head — I had come up with an idea that didn’t have Sigourney, it was a different idea. But I spent all of the shooting time with her, it was like […] that could actually be really interesting.”  He went on to say,  “There’s a high possibility, a high degree of chance that it happens that I go back and try to get Alien made. Fox, they would make it. Like, tomorrow. They would make it.” However, he goes on,  “Sometimes Hollywood just sort of gets to me. I love movies, but Hollywood itself is a difficult animal to negotiate.”  He went on to say that he would “decide soon” if he would be doing the project or not. Meanwhile, hopeful fans wait for his decision.
