We, the undersigned, hereby request that Neill Blomkamp reconsider the possibility of writing/directing a potential Alien5 film. It is in you, we (the fans) put our tremendous faith and overwhelming excitement, in hopes that you revisit the idea of ALIEN fandom...for all of us.

For those of you who were interested in Blomkamp's Alien 5. I know these kind of things always seem like longshots but I honestly believe it was the massive reaction to Blomkamp's artwork that got it green lit in the first place so assuming something like this manages to get traction with the major outlets, maybe it'll make a difference.

Considering it took this long for a reply... I think the Alien sub-forum should be done away with. Alien5 is tad amount to vaporware at this point. It has no purpose but to distract us from the real prize, Alien: Covenant.

That's odd, there does seem to be some quiet on this thread. I'm surprised no one had responded apart from whiterabbit. It's like there's less enthusiasm. Maybe the supporters just went straight to sign the petition without needing to respond? That's a possibility.

Why bother?  FOX already knows people want this, but they've decided to continue their age-old tradition of screwing the pooch on this franchise.

I did throw Blomkamp a tweet, though, suggesting an animated film with Weaver and Biehn supplying voices.

Thanks. I've wondered if the opposition would find an animated film more acceptable as an alternative sequel.  It wouldn't have to be part of the "real" continuity, and the characters could be as young or old as the story needs them to be.

Yea, no one paid attention to this petition until it was in the podcast thread. Of course, this being a sub forum does make it easier to both ignore and out right miss. Still, even in the podcast thread there was little positive desire. Then again people are talking about it now.  ;D

Then again, they probably just signed the petition since there wasn't really anything to add.

I'm all for an animated alien movie. Actually still waiting for that alien anime.

I signed the petition when there was around 100 signatures... figure there wasn't much point in talking about it aside from sharing the link on my Facebook wall.  Most people probably did the same thing.

Blomkamp should make this instead:



"Having studied the enigmatic Yautja for decades, an interstellar recon mission goes wrong when the crew is stranded in orbit around a planet inhabited by an entirely new terror altogether."

"Alien Predators"

The last thing we need is another crossover film least of all one directed by Blomkamp.

What? I think Blomkamp could make an amazing AvP, or rather Alien Predators. And it wouldn't be a crossover, more like an Alien spinoff set in its own canon and structured like a reboot of the AVP series, one that is actually SCARY, like a Dark Sci-Fi Action/Adventure (thematically/conceptually dark, not physically).

Sorry, but I just hate the idea.
