Plenty of films have documented the salacious nature of infidelity in the past, whether it be a breezy subplot for a romantic comedy or the center of attention in a more drama-oriented project. For The Loft, Erik Van Looy’s thriller very much falls into the latter category, telling the story of five well-to-do men who think they’ve concocted the ultimate plan of deceit when they pitch in to purchase a sleek penthouse in the middle of the city, providing them with a concrete outlet for extra-martial affairs and the like.
But when the dead body of an unknown woman appears in the twisted apartment, their seemingly bulletproof plan begins to fall away at the seems, and their relationship between one and other is also put to the test.

Really, though, the life cycle of the Alien films has much more in common with that of the titular monster. It’s violent, messy, and almost resulted in the death of John Hurt. Ever since screenwriter Dan O’Bannon had twenty-some pages of a project called Memory – where some space-farers wake up from cyro-sleep due to a distress call on a nearby planet – but couldn’t figure out where to go next, the franchise has been in a state of flux.
From the haunted house horror of Alien to the hoo-rah action of the sequel, »

Neill Blomkamp, the director behind District 9, Elysium and the upcoming Chappie, has taken to (an unverified) Twitter to share some concept art from an Alien project he was unofficially working on, which includes some shots of Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) and Hicks (Michael Biehn), along with the iconic creature, Weyland Corporation and the crashed alien ship from Ridley Scott’s original movie…

But, as he states he’s no longer working on the project, I guess we may never know…
