Very exciting concept art from Neill Blomkamp’s scrapped project of Aliens Sequel has turned up online today. I am a huge fan of Aliens and would love to see another Aliens movie and this artwork looks superb for the next adventure into the world of Aliens.
“[T]his has nothing to do with the studio,” was posted by an unverified account. “…They didn’t really even know I was working on it.”
Appear to be for a project that was titled Alien Xeno. It is currently unknown whether or not the plan was to develop the story as a film, video game, graphic novel or something else entirely. The images feature the likeness of Sigourney Weaver’s Ellen Ripley as well as that of Michael Biehn’s Corporal Dwayne Hicks alongside an Alien Queen, a Xenomorph-style space helmet, the Weyland-Yutani Corporation and much more.
“My favorite film of all time is ‘Aliens’. Period. James Cameron’s ‘Aliens,’” Blomkamp told ComingSoon.net back in 2013, shortly before his Elysium hit theaters. “What ‘Elysium’ doesn’t have that I’d like to put into the next film is slime and eggs. It’s missing slime and eggs.”
