“So I think it’s officially my next film,” he wrote on his Twitter feed.

Blomkamp has Chappie coming out March 6 and now we all know what he will do next after the Sharlto Copley, Hugh Jackman and Sigourney Weaver starring fable.

Will his Chappie star return to the role? We think so. She has alluded to such in recent months, which of course fueled all those rumors that Blomkamp was making an Alien movie.

Now, we don’t know where in the Alien timeline this Blomkamp film will take place or how it will be influenced or affected by Prometheus and the recently announced Prometheus 2.

Stay tuned as more on this story develops.
