When it was revealed that production on Neill Blomkamp‘s Alien 5 had been delayed indefinitely due to Alien: Covenant and Sigourney Weaver’s commitments to multiple Avatar sequels. We assumed that Blomkamp would move quickly to find a replacement project in the meantime.
Fox then tasked Blomkamp to instead adapt and direct a feature film version of the unreleased time travel novel The Gone World by Thomas Sweterlitsch. Weaver had recently confirmed over the summer that The Gone World was next for Neill, which might be shooting again in South Africa.
Blomkamp just shared this character head sculpt on Instagram that he insists isn’t Alien 5 related, it’s very possible it could be from The Gone World.
