Neill Blomkamp is best known for his work directing films like District 9Elysium 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.

Regardless, let us know what you think of this incredible concept art in the comments section! Thanks to CBM for the heads up! (Source: Instagram)

This makes my heart sink.


Nothing prevents Fox making a sequel to Alien: Resurrection. Afterall, Prometheus 2 will still be a prequel to the first Alien. The storylines wouldn't intersect.

Neill Blomkamp making an Alien movie would have been mindblowing. I wish he had never shared those pics.

Beautiful imagery. Looks a lot like Halo. I would have loved to see his vision of the Alien universe on film.

I would have preferred this so much to the psuedo spinoff/prequel that is Prometheus

This actually looks pretty cool! Any theories on how the story might have gone?

Wow Im just mystified at how gorgeous the art would have made a bad ass film for sure.
