20th Century Fox has closed a deal to have director Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Chappie) develop and direct a new ‘Alien’ movie.
Reports from Variety suggest that this movie will be separate from the ‘Prometheus’ films that Ridley Scott is currently making for the studio. The film and news is in the early stages so not a whole lot other than that is known.
Blomkamp also confirmed the news on Instagram:
UPDATE – Ridley Scott has also signed on to produce the film.
