Today on Instagram Neill Blomkamp posted a photo of an Alien and says "Um... So I think it's officially my next film. #alien". Earlier in the year he had posted concept are he had for an Alien movie but it didn't seem like it was going to happen. It sounds like the wheels started turning when he was working with Sigourny Weaver on his current movie Chappie. He pitched the idea to Fox who loved it but Bloomkamp was reluctant to do it. But it looks like he finally decided he would go ahead and do it.
