Sigourney Weaver says Neill Blomkamp’s Alien movie still lives


There had been some talk that since Ridley Scott was making his Prometheus sequel, Alien: Covenant, Neill Blomkamp’s Alien movie had been quietly put to sleep. That is despite both Scott and Blomkamp saying it was just on hold.

Blomkamp’s sequel will see Sigourney Weaver back as Ripley and the film will be set after Aliens. Blomkamp has said that his film is not trying to undo Alien 3 or Alien: Resurrection, he just wants his film to be connected to Alien and Aliens.

For those of you out there worrying that the project won’t be happening, despite what I have said above, Weaver was recently asked about the project and this is what she had to say about it:

Well, I *think* it is. Ridley asked Neill NOT to make our Alien until after Prometheus 2. He (Ridley) wanted his movie to shoot and be released first. But it’s an AMAZING script, and Neill and I are REALLY excited about doing it. We’re doing other things until we can get going on that. I’d be really surprised if we DIDN’T do it, because it’s such a great script, and we love working together. So, it’s just going to take a little bit longer to get out to you, but it’ll be worth the wait.

There you have it. Ridley Scott hasn’t cancelled Blomkamp’s film. He just wants to shoot his first. Wish they could shoot them together, but looks like we will have to wait a little longer.

In the meantime let’s check out the glorious concept art once more.
