With two Alien movies currently in development, it was always assumed that one of them would get pushed back and with Ridley Scott working hard on Alien: Paradise Lost, the sequel to the Alien prequel Prometheus, it appears that District 9 director Neill Blomkamp’s film will be delayed. Blomkamp took to his twitter to announce the following:
Blomkamp’s film is set to bring back Sigourney Weaver to her famous role of Ripley and continue from where James Cameron’s Aliens left off. While Alien: Paradise Lost has a release date of May 30, 2017, it is unknown when Blomkamp’s movie will release. Stay tuned for more Alien news in the days to come.
