Here Is Neill Blomkamp’s Newest Short Film Zygote

While the first release from Neill Blomkamp’s Oats Studios, Rakka, was a set of scenes telling bits of a story, Zygote tells a story in its 22 minute run time. Starring Dakota Fanning, Zygote borrows heavily from Alien and The Thing among other sources.

If it was part of a feature length film Zygote would be somewhere in the last third. Much of the dialogue is exposition covering the backstory of the situation. I would like to see someone (but not Blomkamp) flesh out that backstory if this is made into a feature length movie.

Neill Blomkamp discusses Zygote over on The Verge.
