From the moment that District 9 and Chappie director Neill Blomkamp released his concept art for a possible Alien movie, we've been salivating over the possibility of a Blomkamp-directed Alien film. But after saying that he wasn't "ready" to make it, Blomkamp has apparently confirmed it's his next project.

Well, Blomkamp says it all over at Instagram:

"Um... So I think it's officially my next film. #alien"

Here we go. We're excited by what we've seen so far, and we're excited to see more.

So is he making a direct sequel to Aliens? If so, does it mean Aliens: Colonial Marines will be written out of canon? If he could write it out of the space-time continuum as well that would be peachy.

Even so, I am indifferent to this news. Everything since Aliens has been one colossal disappointment after the other, and I don't know enough about Neill Blomkamp to really have any faith in his vision. I mean, Joss motherbleeping Whedon wrote Alien Resurrection and look how that turned out! It would take a miracle to drag the Alien franchise out of the filthy pit it has become stuck in.
