I don't see him ever circling around to it, honestly. Even if they do cycle back around to a new alt-Alien 3 project, he really seems to have moved on. The recent Walter Hill treatment seems to have had a similar premise but from the sounds if it, nothing is going on there either.

I hope you're wrong.  I really do.  :laugh:

If Blomkamp actually makes a movie at some point and it's big hit, studios and producers will start beating a path to his door.

Perfect-Organism

Yah, that's about right.  I think he needs to show some dimension beyond Johannesburg ghetto settings and things could get interesting..

SM

I don't even mind if he did it in Jo'burg.  It's telling though that he's had a string of projects since 2015 that haven't progressed.

I'd much rather he got the Robocop sequel than an Alien one.

Same. Though Ed Nuemeier has since been replaced as writer on that one, so I don't think there's any going back to that, either.

Any news about the script?

Not that I ever want this movie ever to be made, but I am curious about the intended synopsis/story of this glorified fanboi project. The four-armed Alien Drone intrigued me.
