And some of you want this guy to direct a Alien film??? The quality of his movies and also his Box Office got exponentially worse every time, why no just call it a day, and search for a GOOD DIRECTOR? Someone who move the story forward instead backwards, someone who gives us something new and fresh and no just a rehash of their fanboy wet dreams about AlienS, while destroying 2 cannon movies in the process.
I guess it's time to took off those nostalgia tinted glasses, Ripley died in Alien 3, end of the story,
Yeah, but I don't think anyone expects him to do a District 9 level movie each and every time. We really need to see a lot more from him before writing him off as a mediocre or a one-hit-wonder director.
Even if people don't want more Ridley Scott I think many other directors would be a far better choice than Blomkamp.
I want to see fresh ideas and new characters not digging up the past to see an inevitably lesser version of what we've already seen.
That doesn't mean no marines or drop ships, you can do all that without raising the dead, again.
