Alien: Blomkamp Will Direct

We chatted the other day about some updates to this proposed Blomkamp film.  If I am honest with myself I posted some of the concept art because I thought it was nifty and thought this was one of those ‘too good to be true’ situations, fan casting for directors.  Never in a million years would I expect Fox to make a smart decision like this.

Either Blomkamp is the luckiest (and smartest) geek alive or this was all a clever ploy to drum up support.  It doesn’t matter, we are getting a new film in the Alien universe and the man in charge is competent.

Bonus:  That amazing retro figure above is part of the ReAction series by Funko.   You can check them out here.
