Neill Blomkamp hade planer på praktiska effekter i Alien 5

Ett tag så var ju ingen mindre än District 9-regissören Neill Blomkamp påtänkt att regissera en Alien-film. Det var Sigourney Weaver, som han arbetade med i Chappie, som peppade honom att pitcha en idé för Fox. Han började skissa på konceptbilder, och ett manus - men det gick inte hela vägen. Vi vet inte exakt vad filmen skulle handla om mer än att Ripley skulle komma tillbaka och händelserna efter Alien 2 skulle ignoreras. Alec Gillis, som var anställd som en typ av specialeffekts-sminkör på projektet, uttalade sig nyligen om effektarbetet i Alien 5:

"That's why I was looking forward to Neill Blomkamp's Alien 5 because that would have given us the opportunity to do more in the spirit of Giger's alien. We were looking at the 1979 alien all the way but Neill did want changes to make on it. As great as Neill's CGI looks, I don't know if you've seen the latest thing he did, Anthem? His CGI just looks so there and present, Chris Harvey his VFX supervisor they just have a great team. And I said to Neill like 'Why aren't you doing this all digitally?' cause if it's biomechanical and harder-edged it lends itself to digital and I'm just surprised that [isn't] digital. He said 'I want a real man in a suit on set because it forces you into a certain way of shooting that would be more like what Ridley Scott did in the first film. If it's all digital I won't have those parameters [to] work within and it's gonna end up looking like something different and I don't want that, I want it to look like Ridley Scott did it."
