New Alien Movie Officially A Go From Neill Blomkamp!

February 19, 2015 by brennon

We heard rumblings on the internet about the coming of a new Alien movie a few months ago now but it seems like those rumours were well founded. Fox have teamed up with Neill Blomkamp who will be bringing Alien back to the screen after Prometheus 2 which will still be helmed by Ridley Scott…

Ripley & Hicks

The new film is looking to be a return to form for the likes of Sigourney Weaver as she takes up the mantle of an older Ripley hopefully. It looks like Hicks is back too, utterly battered and bruised but still looking like a proper bad ass. It’s unknown if any of this concept art (see more below) is going to be making it into the final film but it does look promising.

Decayed Ship

Alien Mask-Ripley

Alien (Concept)

Time will tell if this translates well onto screen but I think that people are always ready for a new Alien film and Prometheus 2 should also be an interesting shout taking the tale in another direction. What we’re interested in however is how this changes the look of the tabletop world and you could see a lot more board games and indeed miniature games coming out following this film.

Prodos Games currently hold the license to do a lot with the Alien and Predator worlds and since their game is tied into the old movies it would be good to see them allowed expansion content later down the line to continue support through these films.

I could really see Modiphius doing something awesome with a role-playing game based on Alien too.

What do you think?
