The director of District 9 and upcoming Chappie Neill Blomkamp has confirmed he will be directing a new iteration of Ridley Scott‘s sci-fi classic Alien! See more details after the break.

20th Century Fox has solidified the deal for the director to make a standalone Alien movie separate from the upcoming Prometheus 2, which will be directed by Ridley Scott.

The South African director has been teasing this for months, and had even gone so far as to say he was not working on it a couple months ago. Now it’s official though: he’ll be on board! Check out the¬†updates from his Instagram account below along with some pretty cool, Alien concept art!


Um… So I think it’s officially my next film. #alien
