Neill Blomkamp Discusses Direction of Alien Film
Upcoming Alien director, Neill Blomkamp, will be continuing Ellen Ripley's storyline from Aliens and will be ignoring all the sequels.
Blomkamp said, "I want this film to feel like it's literally the genetic sibling of Aliens. So it's Alien, Aliens, and then this movie". Sigourney Weaver also commented on the film, saying, "I would love to take Ripley out of orbiting around in space, and give a proper finish to her story". The pair recently gave an interview during a press tour for Blomkamp's Chappie.
Commenting on the tone of the film, Blomkamp said, "It's a Freudian nightmare. That element to me is what is so appealing. To try to put the audience on the edge of their seat, in a traditional 'monster stalking you in a dark corridor way".
