“I’m Working On That” – James Cameron on Making Blomkamp’s Alien 5 Happen

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 Neil 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.

    Denis Villeneuve it is!  ;D

    Or...

    That's a pretty comprehensive list.


    It is.

    Excellent Directors, all appropriate.

    I’m still holding out for a Woody Allen Alien film.

    With the Xenomorph inexplicably falling in love with the obligatroy self-insert character?  :D

    It would take the series in exciting new directions... :)

    It would for sure...

    The only two people from that list who might be a good choice are Mangold and Boyle.

    I want David Twohy (Pitch Black, Riddick) or Peter Hyams (Outland, 2010, The Relic).

    Neil Marshall would be good for Aliens 2 I think. (If not NB who I agree the jury is out on... but if not for his concept, this conversation wouldn't be happening).

    The future is Villeneuve

    Agreed. He's a director I'd love to see make an Alien film.

    I hope he directs an entry someday. Would love for James Cameron to get behind the camera one more time too.

    I like both of these options but I'm very willing to give Neill Blomkamp a chance just for that concept art and Aliens 2 idea.

    Yah, mostly I agree.  Mostly.

    I am not digging Ripley on the Alien costume.

    Disregarding Sicario and arrival , BR 2049 was more than enough proof for me that he has what it takes . He is as close as we are going to get to old school Ridley Scott ever again . And the industry is fortunate to have a director of his style and abilities.

    If we ever get to see another alien film in the spirit and quality of the original , it will be because he was involved.

    Das it.

    Enemy has Gyllenhaal as well.

    I actually enjoyed Enemy more than his other movies. Maybe I'm weird, but I thought Enemy was almost a perfect movie. Almost. Arrival kind of lost the logic at the end but was otherwise pretty good too. The direction was phenomenal either way.

    Enemy was brilliant.
    That's the one with Jake Gyllenhaal, yeah? Fantastic film.

    It's a word! "To consternate" is the infinitive, "consternating" is valid, and so is "consternated", which is just fun to say but might give the listener the impression you've got bowel problems.

    "Consternation" is the most common form of the word in English, but all of its other variants are totally real.

    It sounds like having a great deal of dismay at not being able to do a poo.

    It is common in French. "Consternant". I hesitated to use it in English, but checking with Google it seems to be understandable, albeit not an usual part of English syntax (if I get things right).
