Neil Blomkamp Is Gonna Make An Aliens Movie

Well here is some good god damn news for Sci-Fi fans!

"Um... So I think it's officially my next film. #alien"

Just like that, with one Instagram posting, the man responsible for perhaps the most incredible Science-Fiction movie of the past decade has announced that he is gonna make the next installment in the Aliens franchise.  And no, he doesn't mean Prometheus 2.

That's right everyone.  The man who made District 9 is gonna do something with Xenomorphs, and most likely the most badass heroine of the silver screen, Tha Goddess Ripley.

TheWrap reports that Blomkamp has "signed on to direct a movie set in the Alien universe that will not be Prometheus 2 for 20th Century Fox." The events of the movie, the site claims, take place after Prometheus 2 and that Ridley Scott is producing both films.

Things just keep getting better and better.

Blomkamp -- whose next sci-fi movie, Chappie, opens in March -- has previously said in interviews that his take on any potential Alien 5 would involve Sigourney Weaver's Ripley.  He even went as far in the past to create his own secret concept art just in case he ever got the chance. 

Did I mention it looks awesome?

Blomkamp had before pitched his idea to the production company, 20th Century Fox, and only ever replied that, "they never said no."

Now apparently they have said yes, and things are getting exciting.  The man who singlehandedly created his own iconic film is taking hold of one of the most iconic movie monsters, and heroines to have ever graced the picture shows.

Now it must lean towards District 9, and not Elysium.  Hopefully in two or three summers, we will have acid spitting Xenomorphs in our local movie theaters nationwide, helmed by a Sci-Fi visionary.

What do you think about it all Ellen?

Just be patient.
