Ridley Scott Reveals the Title of His Next Alien Film and Starts to Spill Too Much Information

During a recent interview with Fandango, Alien: Covenant director Ridley Scott started letting all kinds of details fly about his plans for the Alien franchise. He started spilling so many details that the star of Covenant, Katherine Waterston, kept trying to cut him off to prevent him from saying anything more!

He reveals the title of the next Alien film he has planned; how there will be another film that will lead directly into his original Alien film; and says that if the movies do well, there will be five new Alien films total. Here’s how that conversation goes down:

“There will be another one before we kind of literally and logically, clockwise, back into the rear back head of [the original] Alien,” he said.

We asked Scott what the timeline looked like — would it be PrometheusCovenant and then this next movie before we arrive at the events of the original Alien. That’s when the answer became a bit foggy as it appears he slips in the title for another movie we haven’t seen yet and positions it between Prometheus and Covenant.

“It will go PrometheusAwakeningCovenant.. fairly integral where this colonization ship is on the way….”

Waterston cut in again to stop Scott from spoiling any more information. “You’re giving away too much!” she screamed. “But yes, there will be more after this. I think that was the question.” To which Scott replied, “If this is successful, and then the next one, and then there will definitely be three more.”

Damn! Scott was ready to reveal his whole plan for the franchise! Unfortunately, Waterston wouldn’t let him. At least we got the information that we did. Alien: Awakening seems like a solid title, and I’m really curious to see how his next film leads up to the events in Alien.

It’s awesome to see Scott excited about the Alien franchise again. Unfortunately, that means we’ll probably never get to see Neill Blomkamp‘s Aliens sequel. I just wish the studio would have let both projects roll forward. We are getting at least two Star Wars and Marvel films a year, why can’t Fox release two Alien films in a year?

Anyway, I’m excited for Alien: Covenant! I hope that it’s great and that Scott gets to make all the Alien films that he wants!

Michael Biehn Says “Yes” to New ALIEN Film and It Won’t Undo Last Two Films


I was extremely happy to see that Corporal Hicks was included in the concept art for Neill Blomkamp‘s new Alien film. This is one character that I’ve always wanted to see come back in the franchise, and I was devastated when he was killed off in Alien 3.

Michael Biehn attended Pensacola Comic Con this last weekend, and while there he was asked about his potential involvement in the new film. The news comes from a Reddit user who apparently asked the actor two quick questions about his future with the franchise. Continue reading
