District 9 creator Neill Blomkamp gave sci-fi fans a brief glimmer of hope in January, when he teased that he had secretly been working on an Alien sequel that had (apparently) been scuttled. Well, it might be back on again — Blomkamp is now claiming on Instagram (with support from Variety sources) that the project is “officially [his] next film.” There’s no word on the movie’s plot or when it might hit theaters, but his sneak peek showed concept art that included Ripley in an alien-like suit, Weyland-Yutani’s headquarters and the return of Aliens‘ Corporal Hicks.
