Neill Blomkamp, director of District 9 and Elysium, has recently posted up a series of Alien 5 inspired concept art pieces that showcase his ideas for a potential Alien 5 movie starring Sigourney Weaver as Ripley and Michael Biehn as Corporal Dwayne Hicks. In 2013, the director first revealed his strong desire to direct Alien 5. Some of these new images would seem to date from spring 2014 and Blomkamp has now stated on his Instagram account that he’s no longer working on these ideas.
“This has nothing to do with the studio. I just feel like I might do something else instead. In which case why not show some work.” The director stated.
Thanks to Jenga for the news.
