‘District 9’ and ‘Elysium’ director Neill Blomkamp took to his Instagram on New Year’s Day, Jan. 1, to unveil some unofficial concept artwork for an ‘Alien’ sequel he was working on — and it’s totally awesome! See the pics right here!
Alien star Sigourney Weaver, 65, looks just as badass as ever in the just-released early artwork for Neill Blomkamp‘s sequel project. And now for the bad news…
‘Alien’ Sequel: Neill Blomkamp Reveals Unofficial Art — See Pics
Neill shared several spectacular photos on his Instagram account, including one of a pretty intimidating xenomorph, which the South African director captioned: “Was working on this. Don’t think I am anymore. Love it though. #alien #xenomorph”.
Yes, that’s the bad news. Neill has apparently abandoned the project! We’re not exactly sure why but it sounds like it may not have been his choice. He captioned one pic: “Woulda rocked. Was a mental stroll into the world Ridley Scott created.”
Given how crazy fans are going over these new pics right now, we’re hoping the powers that be will give this sequel another chance. And if Neill’s not interested, we’re sure another director will bite!
Other photos the director shared depicted an enormous spacecraft, Sigourney sporting a xenomorph-type mask, and a few other things that left even Neill saying, “Oh shit” and “Wtf?”
