Neill Blomkamp will officially direct new Alien film

0

In space, no one can hear you scream about how cool this is.

When you write your list of perfect directors for the Alien franchise, where does Neill Blomkamp (director of District 9, Elysium and the upcoming Chappie) fall in? Hope it's close to the top because after what seems like months, Fox and Blomkamp have finally closed the deal. 

After Blomkamp posted some concept art to Instagram a few weeks back, he posited that he'd like to make an Alien film after his work on Chappie as a sort of reboot to the series. But he was the problem. It was just a matter of wanting to do it rather than being told not to. But I guess it's all straightened out now! According to Variety, Blomkamp's Alien is separated from the Prometheus films (so we're still getting Prometheus 2 for some reason) and will apparently take place years after the first Prometheus. 

If this can be anywhere as near as cool as that artwork he drew for the series, I'm game. I'm dropping the best one in the gallery below.
