Alien Covenant title card

Ridley Scott has changed the Prometheus sequel in the past few months since he’s gone on the press tour for The Martian. The film has gone through a couple of title changes and has even bumped Neill Blomkamp’s Alien 5 film into an indefinite hold – though some close to the film believe that it will still be made. But while at a press conference in Australia, Scott talked a little bit about his upcoming Alien film, which he says is the start of a brand new trilogy, which pretty much confirms that Blomkamp’s Alien 5 will not be happening any time soon, if at all.

Check out what he had to say below.

So we all know that Ridley Scott‘s Alien: Covenant pretty much forced Neill Blomkamp‘s Alien to be put on hold indefinitely. That rumor was going on for a while even before it got confirmed. Though it was still early at the time, Sigourney Weaver said that Blomkamp’s Alien would be a genetic sibling to the first two Alien films, and the District 9 director confirmed that it would be connected to the first two, then try to establish that bridge between Aliens and Alien 3.

Weaver said she wanted to “take Ripley out of sort of orbiting around in space and give a proper finish to what was such an excellent story.” Now, new details are emerging on how that would have happened. In an interview, Michael Biehn, who played Corporal Dwayne Hicks in James Cameron’s Aliens, talked about Blomkamp’s vision, which would have reunited him with Ripley and an older Newt. Check out his full quote below.

When Ridley Scott announced that Prometheus 2 would actually be Alien: Paradise Lost, there were a few wondering what would be happening to Neill Blomkamp’s Alien 5. After all Sigourney Weaver did sign on for at least two Alien films, and the actress did speak about the film that would have been a genetic sibling to the first two Alien films. Not to mention Blomkamp recently confirmed that the pulse rifle would be making a return.

But there were rumors that Scott insisted that Prometheus 2 (which is what it was called at the time) be made first. This essentially would have delayed Blomkamp’s Alien 5, giving more time to the director to work on his script. Now that rumor is starting to look more like a reality as Blomkamp has confirmed that his Alien 5 has been delayed indefinitely. More on the story here below.

Ridley Scott Says Next Film Will Be ‘Alien: Paradise Lost’; Plans For Multiple ‘Prometheus’ Sequels

Prometheus Alien

While on the promotional tour for The Martian, director Ridley Scott didn’t exactly confirm that Prometheus 2 wold be his next film, but said that his next film would be a part of the Alien franchise.

During a recent interview, the director slipped that his next film will actually be titled Alien: Paradise Lost. This would certainly conflict with the reports that Prometheus 2 would be his next film. This comes off of months of rumors and speculation as to what his next project would be. While much of the news has been focused on Prometheus 2, Scott says the sequel isn’t his next film, but he is still planning for at least three more Prometheus sequels. Instead the director will go back to the film franchise that started it all, Alien.

Ridley Scott

As Ridley Scott completes his work on the upcoming The Martian, reports are suggesting that Prometheus 2 could be his next project. The sequel would be the follow-up to his Alien prequel which saw Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender flying towards the Engineer’s homeworld in an attempt to find out why they want to destroy humanity. Earlier this month, it was being reported that Scott would actual begin filming the movie next January, although it wasn’t clear how this might affect production for Neill Blomkamp‘s Alien 5.

Now we are learning that Prometheus 2 could have a huge affect on the production of the next Alien movie. More on this story below.

Prometheus Ridley Scott with Noomi Rapace

The ending for Prometheus left the door open for sequels and a possible direct bridge to the Alien franchise. But because of its lackluster performance at the box office, development on the sequel has been slow going. Then came word that Neill Blomkamp would direct Alien 5, stirring up rumors that Prometheus 2 could also be on its way to actually going into production.

While it is far from a confirmation, a new interview reveals that Ridley Scott may actually start shooting Prometheus 2 in January. More on this story below.

Alien 3

Neill Blomkamp talked a little bit about his planned Alien film during the Chappie press tour, saying that he wants to make it a “genetic sibling.” Confirming that his film is indeed part of the Alien canon, the District 9 director said that it goes “Alien, Aliens, and then this film.” According to him and star Sigourney Weaver, the new chapter in the Alien franchise would give Ripley’s story a proper ending. These comments led to the speculation that his film would ignore Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection.

While that “proper ending” would lead some to believe that it would undo the last two films of the Alien franchise, Blomkamp clarified his previous comments, saying that he’s “not trying to undo Alien 3 or Alien: Resurrection” and said that his goals are to “make a film that’s connected to Alien and Aliens.” Hit the jump for more.

Neill Blomkamp Alien Concept Art

When looking at the entire film catalog of the Alien franchise, Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection are the weakest of the four. So Neill Blomkamp hopes that his new Alien film will be something that can disregard those final two films, and be a proper installment by acting as a “genetic sibling” to the first two movies.

Blomkamp amazed us all with the concept art that he released via Instagram, and the District 9 director then revealed that he could make the movie if he wanted to before it was eventually confirmed that he would indeed helm a brand new Alien film next. But it wasn’t clear whether Sigourney Weaver‘s Ripley character would be involved or not.

While making the press rounds for Chappie, Blomkamp and film star Weaver talked about the new Alien and confirmed that the movie would feature Ripley after all, acting as closure to her story. Hit the jump for more and to see a video of the two talking about the movie.
