Neill Blomkamp shares Alien and Ripley art

Neill Blomkamp is a fan of sci-fi. He’s worked on projects like Elysium and District 9. He’s also working on the upcoming robot movie called Chappie. Before all of this, he was supposed to direct a Halo movie. Now the director has shared with his fans concept art for an Alien movie that never was.

The art featured Sigourney Weaver, Michael Biehn and the Xenomorph Queen. Throughout the day, the director released many different concept art. Was the art from a failed project, or was it Blomkamp’s pitch to studios? Or maybe it’s just fan art?

A Blomkamp Twitter account that isn’t verified reveals more of the backstsory, saying that “they [presumably Fox] didn’t really even know I was working on it ha.”

Check out the art below.

Here’s what he said of the Alien project: “Was working on this. Don’t think I am anymore. Love it though. #alien #xenomorph”
