Though Neill Blomkamp has moved on from his Alien 5 project, it would seem James Cameron is not quite ready to let it go! While on the red carpet of Alita: Battle Angel, IGN (via The Terminator Fans) had the chance to ask James Cameron (who produced Alita along with Predators’ Robert Rodriguez) about the upcoming Terminator 6 and Blomkamp’s Alien 5.
IGN: “After Tim takes care of that can you give Neill Blomkamp a call about Aliens please?”
James Cameron: “I’m working on that, yeah.”
Sir Ridley Scott was actually attached to produce Alien 5 with Blomkamp, but Cameron had seen Blomkamp’s script and described it as “gangbusters.” Though far from any form of confirmation, it sounds like Cameron may be stepping up to bat for Blomkamp’s Alien 5 after the project fell apart in 2017.
