Neil Blomkamp Teases Alien 5 With Some More Concept Art

Neill Blomkamp has specialized in original science fiction genre films thus far, but for his next project he’s working within the confines of a well-established sandbox: the Alien franchise. And for anybody who loves a series like that, it is gonna be interesting to see what the sci-fi visionary comes up with.

At least it cannot be as bad as some of the other movies/video games....can it?

It’s not clear yet what Blomkamp’s Alien 5 will be about, nor when it will take place in the Alien cinematic timeline. However, similar to 2015 series revivals Jurassic World and Terminator Genisys, Blomkamp’s movie will come the closest to being a direct continuation of the last widely-acclaimed installment in its respective franchise (James Cameron’s Aliens, in this case).

As such, Blomkamp’s Alien 5 will bring back Sigourney Weaver as series’ lead Ellen Ripley, and her Aliens costar Tha God of the 80's Michael Biehn may well return as Dwayne Hicks too. The latest piece of concept art for the project unveiled by Blomkamp confirms that so much remains the plan now.

Blomkamp posted the newest piece of Alien 5 concept art to his Instagram account, with a note that the project is “going very well.”

The picture features both Ripley and Hicks (alongside some as yet identified people), facing a soldier(?) wearing futuristic armor, who appears to have the South Korean flag as a logo on their left shoulder.

Check out the image for yourself and see what you make of it:

OG Sigourney Weaver AKA Ripley AND Tha God Michael Biehn?! This could be good.
