Neill Blomkamp Alien Movie On Hold
The Neill Blomkamp Alien movie is now on hold as the director let the news be known via Twitter.
Fox has apparently decided to put the project on the (temporay?) back-burner because of Ridley Scott's Prometheus sequel, which is due out May 30, 2017, and is now titled Alien: Paradise Lost.
The Blomkamp Alien movie has generated a lot of excitement as both Sigourney Weaver and Michael Biehn were set to be on board. In addition, Blomkamp released concept art of his designs with the most recent being a version of the Alien Pulse Rifle. The movie was looking to come out around 2017.
Disappointing news to saw the least.
