Well, we can’t say we’re surprised, but definitely sad to see that Neill Blomkamp’s production of Alien 5 (as they’ve called it, but really it’s a sequel to Alien 2), has been officially killed. Really, I think the reason is clear – Fox just doesn’t have the bold kind of vision to have two potentially competing Alien franchises going simultaneously. So once Ridley Scott’s Prometheus/Alien: Covenant prequels got rolling, Blomkamp’s project was dead man, walkin’. It’s definitely a bummer, considering all the Alien movies after 2, it’s too bad we never got that sequel to 2 that we all wanted. Read about it at SuperHeroHype.com at the below link:
