Neill Blomkamp to direct new Alien movie

Neill Blomkamp, the director behind such sci-fi features as District 9 and the up coming Chappie has just been signed by 20th Century Fox to direct the newest installment in the flagging Alien franchise. The title will reportedly have little to do with the Ridley Scott produced second Prometheus movie due out in 2016, and will hopefully breath new life into a stagnating franchise.
