'District 9' Director Neill Blomkamp Reveals Concept Art From Secret 'Alien' Project

"District 9" and "Elysium" director Neill Blomkamp took to Instagram on Thursday to release concept art from a secret "Alien" project which would have reunited Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley and Michael Biehn’s Hicks. Unfortunately, the caption on his first post in the series seems to indicate Blomkamp is no longer pursuing the film. "Was working on this. Don't think I am anymore. Love it though," he wrote.

According to an unverified Twitter account under Blomkamp's name, the film was never connected to a studio (what would most likely be Fox). "They didn't really even know I was working on it," he wrote. Based on the fantastic art, we hope Blomkamp's addition to the "Alien" franchise will get reevaluated.

Was working on this. Don't think I am anymore. Love it though. #alien #xenomorph
