Development Hell: Neill Blomkamp’s Alien V What Happened?

Neill Blomkamp's ALIEN V

Revisit the fifth episode of the Development Hell podcast featuring one of the greatest cancelled films of all time: Neill Blomkamp’s ALIEN V!

Josh talks with Joe Lipsett (co-host of the Bloody-Disgusting Horror Queers podcast) all about this never-made ALIEN sequel from the creator of the Oscar-nominated DISTRICT 9.  

In 2014, filmmaker Neill Blomkamp released a series of concept illustrations for a potential ALIEN sequel commissioned by artist Geoffroy Thoorens.

Fan interest became serious. Soon 20th Century Fox announced they had hired Blomkamp to direct a new ALIEN film.

Subsequently even Sigourney Weaver had expressed her support of a Blomkamp helmed sequel during the promotional run for their joint sci-fi film CHAPPIE

First up the listen in as Josh and Joe go spelunking into the context of previous franchise installment ALIEN: RESURRECTION.

Then these two dive into the many failed iterations of ALIEN V, and all of the drama that plagued it’s path, from Joss Whedon to Ridley Scott and beyond…
