Blomkamp to Direct Alien!

Neill Blomkamp Will Direct The 'Alien' Sequel!

By: Dave Clark

Last month, when Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium, Chappie) posted concept art designs for a possible Alien film, he set the internets on fire. And today it was confirmed via his Instagram account (and later by 20th Century Fox), that he'll be directing the next Alien sequel. It will be a true sequel in the franchise and not a sequel to Prometheus which is currently set to be released on March 4th 2016. Now...will Sigourney Weaver return?

Um... So I think it's officially my next film. #alien

Are you guys as excited for this film as we here at Atomic Geekdom are? Are you looking for to the franchise continuing with both a new Alien film and a Prometheus sequel?
