In early 2015 South African film director Neil Blomkamp released some concept art for a film idea which was meant to be the next in the Alien film series. The pictures showed a half alien half Ripley image as well as a picture of a still living Hicks. Blomkamp is known for his modern sci-fi films such as District 9, Elysium and Chappie.
There was no mention of a production or any plans for the film to be made they were simply some ‘ideas’ that the director decided to throw on to Instagram and it started a media and fan frenzy.
But at what cost?
