Alien 5 – Concept Art And More Details
July 21, 2015 - Beta,
Neill Blomkamp (Chappie) has been working hard on Alien 5 but giving few details about the next Alien installment. However we did get to see some concept art from the director recently via his Instagram account (see below). We also know that Alien 5 will ignore a few of the “average quality” middle movies much like Colin Trevorrow did with Jurassic World. Instead Alien 5 will follow Aliens in the timeline. “I want this film to feel like it is literally the genetic sibling of Aliens. So it’s Alien, Aliens and then this movie,” Blomkamp told Sky Movies.
The Hollywood Reporter is saying Neill (yes that is the correct spelling) has settled on a title for the classic space horror film but it has not been released. Probably an easy guess it will contain the word “Alien”. Ridley Scott will return again to the IP as one of the producers. Sigourney Weaver who recently worked with Blomkamp on Chappie, and Aliens alum Michael Bien may also be returning.
Next year if all goes well we will see both Alien 5 and Prometheus 2. A bit of an Aliens throw down as they go both head to head and hand in hand. Elizabeth Shaw is on board for Prometheus 2, and there are rumors Sigourney Weaver may appear in both films. Tough female leads vs. Xenomorphs. “Get away from her you bitch!”
