UPDATE (2/18/15): It’s official — Neill Blomkamp confirmed via Instagram that Alien will be his next film.
Considering that Sigourney Weave also said she is open to making Blomkamp’s Alien feature, it feels like everything is falling into place.
According to Deadline, Ridley Scott will produce the film and Blomkamp will direct. Sources indicate that there is not yet a script for Prometheus 2 or the new Aliens film.
