Blomkamp shows new Alien film concept art, says movie is going 'very well'

New, comments

Neill Blomkamp took to Instagram yesterday to show off a piece of concept art for his new Aliens film and let people know that things are coming along nicely.

"Alien going very well," he wrote. "Love this project."

#alien going very well. Love this project

In the concept art we can see Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) and Corporal Dwayne Hicks (Michael Biehn). The new film is going to be a direct sequel to 1986's Aliens, Blomkamp said in an interview earlier this year. That will make this movie the chronological third in the franchise, after Alien and Aliens.

Blomkamp has used his Instagram feed to share concept art from the project before; however, strangely, it appears he's removed everything causing older Instagram embeds to appear blank (as seen here). In the eventuality that Blomkamp removes the image, we've saved a backup of it here, for future historians to consider.
