Neill Blomkamp is Officially Directing the Next ‘Alien’ Sequel!

alien-iso-main Neill Blomkamp sparked a nerdgasm last month when he posted some unofficial concept art for his vision of a new chapter in 20th Century Fox’s Alien franchise, but nothing as to the excitement that comes today as the District 9 director posted to his Instagram page that he would indeed be directing the next installment of the Alien saga.

20th Century Fox has since confirmed the news, and announced that it is, indeed, a sequel to the original Alien franchise and not the Prometheus sequel which is slated for a March 4, 2016 release.

As of press, no word on if Signourney Weaver will be returning to the franchise…but we can hope.

More as it becomes available

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