Neill Blomkamp is best known for his work directing films like District 9, Elysium and this year's Chappie. But what fans of the accomplished director may not know is that he was at one point involved in a film set in Ridley Scott's Alien universe! Just moments ago the director shared concept art from a project he admits to working on via his Instagram, and they feature various designs of a mature Ellen Ripley, the Weyland Corp, an excavated Derelict spacecraft and the Xenomorph itself! Blomkamp posted this in addition to the photos: "Was working on this. Don't think I am anymore. Love it though."
It's possible Neill was involved in an Alien film prior to the Studio's choice to go the Prometheus route, getting further away from the Xenomorph and the original quadrilogy's storyline. Without a doubt Neill possesses the right style to direct an Alien film, but it's unlikely we'll be seeing an Alien 5 from him anytime soon with 20th Century Fox already developing the Prometheus sequel as well as a new sequel to Predator.
