Variety reports that Neill Blomkamp's Untitled Alien Sequel project is being developed separately from the 20th Century Fox sequel Prometheus 2, which Ridley Scott is directing. That report also reveals Neill Blomkamp has closed a deal with the studio for this project. A separate report from Deadline reveals that Ridley Scott will also be producing this new Alien movie through his Scott Free Productions company, with this untitled Alien movie set after the events of Prometheus 2.
In a separate interview last week, Sigourney Weaver, who worked with Neill Blomkamp on Chappie, said she would be interested in reprising her role as Ripley. The director said that part of what made him want to make this movie was because Sigourney Weaver herself told him that she thought Ripley's story was incomplete. Unfortunately, neither the director nor Sigourney Weaver would reveal any specific plot details, but perhaps we'll learn more in the near future.Read More
