Neill Blomkamp Would Have Made His ‘Alien’ Sequel Look Like This
Though he already lived the universal dream of shaving Matt Damon’s head, Elysium and District 9 director Neill Blomkamp apparently still has at least one other, still unfulfilled sci-fi fantasy. On New Year’s Day, Blimkamp revealed on Instagram that he at least previously hoped to direct a follow-up in the Alien franchise. He added on Twitter that 20th Century Fox “didn’t really even know [he] was working on it,” and he doesn’t think he is anymore either, but he nonetheless did get as far as commissioning some concept art for the project, and you can have a look at some of it below. Hicks was going to come back horribly disfigured! Ripley would have worn an alien headpiece thing! The entire thing would somehow end up an obvious allegory for the modern class divide, presumably!
