Last Tuesday, our own Mike Ryan met with Chappie and District 9 director Neill Blomkamp to discuss his latest film, but there was no chance he was getting away without talking about that Alien concept art that everyone has been going crazy over. Blomkamp said that he has “been wanting to make an Alien film for like years and years,” and he said that there was a “high possibility, a high degree of chance” that he would get what he wants if he went back and simply tried to get his version of Alien made.
Well, if the above Instagram post is any indication, it looks like Blomkamp went back and got the damn thing done (Variety confirms that Blomkamp and Fox indeed have a deal). “Um… So I think it’s officially my next film” is the caption to his fan art, and now we can all sit back and silently freak out about the potential for this film. Or, screw it, let’s freak out as loud as we can.
