Neill Blomkamp teases new project and no, it's not Alien 5

Neill Blomkamp teases new project and no, it's not Alien 5

It's been common knowledge for some time now that while 20th Century Fox pursue and produce Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant, that the hotly discussed Alien 5 film by Neill Blomkamp would be put on hold. This of course is not holding Blomkamp back from attempting new film endeavors as he proved yesterday evening by sharing a photo to his personal Instagram account of a new project he's currently working on. Neill made sure to acknowledge that the photo had no relation to his Alien project, which he had teased artwork for extensively throughout this past year.

The image clearly depicts a deformed humanoid face - almost like multiple faces have been merged together. Blomkamp left little else to go on for what the image is for, but we can assume more details will arise soon enough.

As for the state of Alien 5, countless interviews with the cast and those involved in its (currently halted) production insinuate that Blomkamp is still very much in board as the film's eventual director. However, with Alien: Covenant taking center stage, releasing next August, it's likely we won't see Alien 5 start moving again until late 2018 or even 2019, assuming Blomkamp's new project wraps up well before then.

Though Chappie and Elysium didn't shatter records or prove to be all that successful with critics, we're still quite intrigued to see what Neill comes up with for this new project. Could this be early work for a District 9 sequel?

As new information presents itself concerning Blomkamp's new project we'll be sure to keep you updated. Let us know what you think of this teaser image and what you think it might entail in the comments section below!

CHRIS PICARD - How very interesting! This image almost draws to mind some of the more, hmm, "memorable" monstrosities from the Hellraiser films. Most fascinating! :)

Elephant Man, anyone?

I'm intrigued.

Reminds me quite a bit of the Hellboy films.

Interesting and i think this project is what would have a great bearing on Alien 5.... if Blomkamp can make this project a hit it would bold well for his Alien 5

If it becomes a Flop then we have to be concerned over Alien 5 or any potential it may get produced..... Fox/Ridley certainly like the ideas and so at very least Blomkamp would take some credit and play some role... regardless of if at the time the movie gets made... he is not Director etc
