Sad news today, with Director Neil Blomkamp taking to Twitter to reveal that his eagerly awaited 'Alien 5' is on indefinite hold at 20th Century Fox.

With Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus' sequel unexpectedly inching closer to the 'Alien' franchise, the studio has decided to put a halt to the competing project, with Blomkamp moving onto a yet-unannounced project.
Whilst it might not be game over for 'Alien 5', it's now most definitely in stasis.
