Neill Blomkamp talks Alien 5 and Prometheus

March 23rd, 2015 by Marc Comments


With  Neill Blomkamp’s Alien 5 now a real thing, we’re wondering when we can get something solid about the story and it looks like this may be the first bit of solid news…

Talking to Empire Magazine, Blomkamp talked about the movie and its relationship with the ongoing Prometheus movie and how he had to change something in the script because Ridley Scott, while he loves the script, had a few little issues with things that step slightly on the toes of his Prometheus 2: “I changed the one thing [Ridley Scott] felt was bumping Prometheus a little bit.”

He also states that he has a title in mind but can’t reveal it: “It’s kinda quite bold, but it gives away too much if I say the title”.

Curiously, he also drops a hint about where it fits in the timeline of the original movies: “Where it went after Aliens to me, as a fan, was wrong”. The new film will be “the triplet of the first two. There’s a shitload missing as a fan that I would want to see”.

He have no idea where this can come in the original timeline but we’re certainly keen to find out.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
