Director Neill Blomkamp was secretly working on an “Alien” movie before his directorial debut with “District 9.”
Now it looks like a pipe dream.
The director revealed several concept images of the film, including the xenomorph, a scarred Corporal Dwayne Hicks, Weyland Corp., and alien-hybrid Ellen Ripley.
“Was working on this. Don’t think I am anymore. Love it though,” he wrote. “Woulda rocked. Was a mental stroll into the world Ridley Scott created.”
The concept art is by Geoffroy Thoorens.
Blomkamp did hint that the door is open for him to return to the project.
Check out the artwork and photo below. Note he also has a sculpture of Master Chief from “Halo” on his desk. Hmmmm…..
