It’s been a bit quiet on the “Neill Blomkamp’s Alien” front recently, so it’s good to hear that the film is still very much in development with a new piece of concept art from the man himself.

The Chappie and District 9 director took to Instagram to tease the above image, which shows that Hicks is still very much involved. Will a decades-old fan grievance finally be settled? It’s hard to look at this and not feel a rising tide of excitement. Ripley! And Hicks! But more importantly, Ripley!
