Recently it was reported that Neill Blomkamp would direct a Alien movie but there seems to be more to it. The South African filmmaker has now hinted that there will be more than one new Alien adventure from him coming in the future.
Blomkamp, who is currently doing the rounds promoting his film, Chappie, recently sat down with Empire about his vision for the future Alien films when he teased that he has enough ideas to expand into multiple stories.
“When I met Sigourney Weaver on the set of Chappie, I presumed that she would never want to play Ripley again… I also didn’t know where you could go with her, given Alien 3 and 4. When I started to speaking to her, I just wanted to know more about the process of making the first two films. The first two are the ones that I care about. Then I started to realize there was a whole film, at least a film, if not more, that still contained Ripley, which I was really surprised by.”
