Which would you rather see? Ridley Scott was supposed to cap his prequel trilogy off with a final film but rumor has it that the film has been completely cancelled and will probably never see the light of day. With this happening, Disney buying Fox and just the mixed reception to Scott's 'Prometheus' and 'Alien Covenant' in general, I think Blomkamp is taking advantage of this in hopes to get his film made. While his Alien project was cancelled quite some time ago, I personally think Disney would be dumb not to consider the project at the very least. Yesterday Blomkamp shared this killer concept art to his instagram:
"Cinema should make you forget you are sitting in a theater" - Roman Polanski
I'd rather just have a proper Alien 5. I was intrigued at first by the Alien prequels, but aside from Michael Fassbinder's performance, they've been lacking.
They should wait a while before making another film. Considering we've had the AVP films and the two prequels in the past thirteen years, let the franchise breathe a bit, come up with a good story and then go ahead with a sequel.
I'm not interested in anything that Blomkamp does. I liked Covenant and I enjoy Alien three, but I wouldn't mind seeing a different interpretation of a third movie in the Alien series if Blomkamp wasn't involved.
