However, the Chappie and District 9 helmer has now revealed that his plans for another Alien movie won’t affect what Scott might have in the works for his long delayed prequel. “I changed the one thing [Scott] felt was bumping ‘Prometheus’ a little bit,” Blomkamp revealed in a recent interview with Empire. “One thing that makes me feel good about it is that Ridley is producing it. He likes the idea of what I want to make.”
There has of course been talk of Alien 5 being more like Alien 3 as both the original version of that and Alien: Resurrection won’t be taken into account. So, what could the title of Blomkamp’s movie be?
“I sent what I wanted as the title to Ridley. It’s kinda quite bold, and he was like, ‘I really like that.’ So I’m gonna test it, I don’t think it’s gonna work, though. I have my own idea but it gives away too much if I say the title. But in the event that it doesn’t work, I’m dead in the water…” That definitely sounds intriguing!
As of right now, the plan is apparently for Scott to direct Prometheus 2 which was written by Michael Green and Jack Paglen. Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender are expected to return. Blomkamp meanwhile is writing and directing Alien 5. Both movie are expected to reach us at some point between 2016 – 2018.
