Neill Blomkamp posts concept art for defunct Alien sequel

Neill Blomkamp has posted a tantalising look at some unused concept art for the now-defunct Alien 5, with the director revealing he had been working on the project in some capacity.

“Was working on this," posted Blomkamp, alongside the imagery. “Don't think I am anymore. Love it though. #alien #xenomorph.”

Designed by artist Geoffroy Thoorens, it’s pretty awesome stuff, and has us convinced that Blomkamp would have been an inspired choice to pick up the baton on the long-running franchise.

Take a look at some of the imagery, via Blomkamp’s Instagram feed, below…
