Blomkamp had been teasing a new Alien film in 2014, but it recently thought to have been abandoned. Then Blomkamp posted an extraterrestrial sketch to his Instagram with the caption, “Um… So I think it's officially my next film,” along with an alien hashtag (see below).



What are your thoughts? Are you excited to see the film coming to fruition?
