Neill Blomkamp and Sigourney Weaver Have A 20-Minute Movie Pitch For You Called Rakka

Neill Blomkamp never got to make his Alien movie with Sigourney Weaver, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t try their darnedest to get the closest possible thing. Here is a twenty-minute short film called Rakka, written and directed by Blomkamp and starring Weaver.

Rakka reads more as a pitch for a longer work, even ending on a cliffhanger. There’s a frightful amount of exposition in here, which certainly makes the story clear, but would be better if it wasn’t woven throughout the entire thing.

What do you think? Would you watch a full film version of Rakka?
