Neil Blomkamp’s Alien 5 will be incredibly awesome and epic if the studio gave him the opportunity to make the movie. But, they opted to concentrate on Ridley Scott’s Alien movies, which a lot of fans felt were inadequate.
Well, today we’ve got some new concept art for the unproduced movie that would have seen the return of Sigourney Weaver and Michael Bean. The events of the movie would have picked up after the events of James Cameron’s Aliens and disregarded the events of Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection. The art you will see here comes from artist Geoffroy Thoorens.
“We almost started to do it when I was working with James Cameron. But by the time we were put off by Fox, Neill had gotten so many jobs that we’d have to wait probably. I’m busy doing Avatar 4and 5. I love working with Neill and I think he’d do a terrific job, and James Cameron really thinks it’s a great idea, so you never know. Right now, I think Neill’s got like three projects going at once.”
There is another Alien 5 movie that is in the works right now and it’s being produced by Walter Hill. Blomkamp is not associated with this project. It’s revealed that the “destiny” of Ellen Ripley is core to the new movie.
