18 February 2015 4:41 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A new Alien movie is on the way.

District 9's Neill Blomkamp is to direct the film from 20th Century Fox, with Ridley Scott on board as producer.

"So I think this is officially my next film," Blomkamp wrote on Instagram on Wednesday night (February 18).

Blomkamp revealed last month that he has been working on his own take on the sci-fi series, which is reportedly set after the events of Fox's Prometheus sequel with Scott.

There were suggestions that the new Alien movie was to be abandoned, until Blomkamp's latest Instagram post on Wednesday.

Sigourney Weaver also recently admitted that she would be interested in reprising her Alien role if Blomkamp's project went ahead, but it is as yet unclear whether Weaver is officially involved.

New ‘Alien’ Movie Confirmed with Director Neill Blomkamp

18 February 2015 4:32 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

20th Century Fox has closed a deal with director Neill Blomkamp to develop a new “Alien” movie, sources confirm.

The untitled sci-fi project is separate from “Prometheus 2,” which Fox is still making with Ridley Scott.

Blomkamp, who directed “District 9″ and the upcoming Sony feature “Chappie,” had been teasing the project in recent months but said the extra-terrestrial reboot was likely abandoned. It was supposed to star “Alien” veteran Sigourney Weaver.

But on Wednesday Blomkamp confirmed the tentpole was back on track at Fox.

“So I think this is officially my next film,” he confirmed on Instagram.

It’s unclear whether Weaver is still attached to the movie.

According to insiders, the new “Alien” takes place years after the “Prometheus” sequel. Scott is producing both films through his production company Scott Free.

Prometheus,” also distributed by Fox, was “loosely based” on the “Alien” franchise and earned over $400 million worldwide. »

Sigourney Weaver: 'I'd consider starring in Neill Blomkamp's Alien'

15 February 2015 8:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sigourney Weaver has suggested that she would be interested in reprising her Alien role if Neill Blomkamp's project goes ahead.

District 9 director Blomkamp revealed last month that he has been working on his own take on the sci-fi series separately from studio 20th Century Fox.

Weaver told Coming Soon that although the project's future is unclear, she would consider returning to the role of Ellen Ripley.

"[Blomkamp] kept sending me these brilliant designs and ideas and everything. We'll see what happens," she said.

Weaver added that while she has resisted becoming involved in any further sequels in the Alien franchise, Blomkamp's project would be "original".

"I didn't want to manufacture a sequel, and I felt like we were starting to do that," she said.

"If something happens from this, it would be very organic and very original, and because of that it would make me want to do it. »

Blomkamp Talks His "Aliens" Sequel Idea

11 February 2015 4:21 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In the movie news world, 2015 got off to a bang when "District 9" and "Elysium" surprised everyone and posted online a massive stash of concept art for a film project he was tinkering with for his own reasons - what appeared to be a direct follow-up to James Cameron's 1986 effort "Aliens" that seemingly ignored both "Alien 3" and "Alien Resurrection".

The art showed Sigourney Weaver's Ripley and Michael Biehn's Hicks along with scenes set inside what seems to be Weyland Yutani headquarters and the crashed ship wreckage from Lv-426. Blomkamp shared the artwork during post-production on next month's sci-fi drama "Chappie" and admitted it was not official in anyway and that the studio "didn't really even know I was working on it".

With the press junket for that film having just been held, Blomkamp was asked by Uproxx about the artwork and the reaction to it. It »

10 Unused Film Endings That Were Better Than The Real Thing

11 February 2015 1:38 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Endings are tricky. There are films that are totally perfect for the first two acts, only to totally mess up the landing, which spoils your overall enjoyment. After all, the ending is the lasting impression that most movies leave you with, so if that sucks… You’ll probably decide that the whole thing sucked. So they’re tricky, but they’re also really, really important.

Especially considering Hollywood is so sequel-focussed right now. If people hate the ending to your movie, they’re less likely to come see the next one. Which is probably why producers appear to be agonising over endings more than ever, with sites constantly reporting on re-writes and reshoots of major blockbusters.

World War Z famously scrapped an entire third act, drafting in Damon Lindelof and Drew Goddard to provide a new finale. The former was also parachuted into Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, although how much his version helped is debatable. »

Jennnifer Lawrence & Chris Pratt Might Star in a Movie Together

9 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt have proven that they're both bankable box office stars and likeable offscreen personalities. So what if they teamed up for a new movie?

That's a very real possibility, with both Variety and TheWrap reporting that the stars are both being courted to play the leads in a romantic sci-fi flick called "Passengers." Per Variety, Lawrence is in early talks for the role; TheWrap later reported that Pratt was also in preliminary negotiations.

The synopsis, per Variety:

"Passengers" is set on a spacecraft in the future, with thousands of passengers making an interstellar voyage to a distant new planet. One passenger awakens from cryogenic sleep 90 years before anyone else and decides to wake up a female passenger, sparking the beginning of a love story.

According to TheWrap, Lawrence's involvement is the most problematic at the moment, since the Oscar winner has a jam-packed schedule -- including »

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt for new sci-fi film

8 February 2015 10:33 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The director of The Imitation Game is lining up Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt for Passengers...

Passengers is a film that seems to have been swilling around the Hollywood system for a little while now. But there seems to be a real sign that it's finally going to move forward.

It's a science fiction love story, that Sony Pictures is backing, and the studio has The Imitation Game director Morten Tyldum apparently on board to direct the movie. It tells the story of spacecraft on a very, very long journey, that takes over 100 years to complete, and it's been penned by Jon Spaihts, who worked on Prometheus (and is currently scribbling Doctor Strange for Marvel).

Furthermore, there's some fairly significant casting news. Not that it'll be a surprise if you read the headline to this piece, which presumably made you click on it in the first place. But you can't »

Chris Pratt In Talks For Passengers

8 February 2015 9:46 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Now that Sony has finally given long-slumbering script Passengers a proper home, and hired The Imitation Game’s Morten Tyldum to direct, things are moving apace on the casting front. According to The Wrap, Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence are in early talks to star. The story of a spaceship transporting thousands of human colonists to a distant planet, Passengers chronicles what happens when a malfunction causes one of them to be rudely awakened 90 years before anyone else. Unable to fix the situation and seemingly doomed to spend his time dying alone, he decides to take the unusual and controversial step of waking up a fellow passenger. Can love bloom in the echoing confines of the ship? We may finally find out. Doctor Strange / Prometheus scribe Jon Spaihts wrote the script in 2010 and it’s taken this long to find a suitable home, finding and losing directors and stars along the way. »

Jennifer Lawrence And Chris Pratt May Co-Star In This Epic Space Drama, Get The Details

7 February 2015 8:46 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Every now and then a special film comes along. A film so special that it's almost too good to be made. Prometheus writer Jon Spaihts' Passengers is one of those films, with two female leads, one male lead, and a director dropping out of the picture between 2013 and now. With a new director recently secured, it's time to fast track a new cast. Lucky for all involved, two very hot commodities have landed in their lap, as Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are in talks to take up the leads. Variety first reported that Jennifer Lawrence was in talks to take over the role of a female passenger aboard an interstellar voyage. Awoken 90 years too soon, she finds that someone else has had the misfortune of waking up way before their voyage was supposed to conclude, and has woken her up on purpose. That "misfortunate" companion was tipped later »

Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Pratt In Talks For Sci-Fi Romance Passengers

7 February 2015 | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

You may have heard of Jon Spaihts' (Prometheus, Doctor Strange) script for Passengers, as it's been on the Black List for quite a while, and at one time had Keanu Reeves and Rachel McAdams lined up for the lead roles. That version of the movie never went anywhere, but now Variety are reporting that subsequent to Sony purchasing the rights late last year, the project has a new director in Morten Tyldum, and two of the biggest actors in the world right now in early talks to star. Chris Pratt would play one of thousands of passengers aboard a spacecraft heading for a new home planet in a distant galaxy who wakes from cryo-sleep 90 years before he's supposed to, and decides to wake another passenger to keep him company. That, of course, is Jennifer Lawrence's character. She obviously isn't too pissed about it though, as this is said »

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt in Talks for Sci-Fi ‘Passengers’

6 February 2015 10:55 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Sony Pictures is in negotiations with Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt to star in Morten Tyldum’s space love story “Passengers.”

The story is set in a future inside a spacecraft in which a man wakes up early from a cryogenic sleep. Due to loneliness, he decides to wake a female passenger for companionship.

The script is written by Jon Spaihts (“Prometheus,” “Doctor Strange”). Tyldum (“The Imitation Game”) jumped on board to direct late last year after Sony Pictures picked up the project after The Weinstein Co. and Focus Features failed to develop the picture.

It’s possible that Lawrence’s deal may not pan out due to her quite busy schedule.
