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.

Alien Covenant title card

A few months back, Ridley Scott announced that he would follow up his hit sci-fi film The Martian with Prometheus 2. Many had speculated that the sequel would have been the director’s next project, but he then confirmed that the film wouldn’t be called Prometheus 2; instead it would be titled Alien: Paradise Lost. The film put Neill Blomkamp’s planned Alien 5 in a very tough position, forcing the District 9 director to put his Alien film on hold.

Spectre scribe John Logan was recently brought in to do some of the rewrites for the Scott’s sequel, and at the same time a rumor popped up that Alien: Paradise Lost would be getting a new title. Now, Fox has announced that the film won’t be titled Prometheus 2 or Alien: Paradise Lost, but rather Alien: Covenant. More on the story below, including the official synopsis.

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.

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.

The internet caught fire when District 9 and Elysium, and director Neill Blomkamp shared some concept art for a movie set in Ridley Scott‘s 1979 classic Alien universe, leading many to think he was, or at one point had been, working on a new movie in the franchise.

More recently he confirmed that he’s always wanted to make an Alien movie, and when there was some down time during post production on his latest movie, Chappie, he began working on the concept art, inspired in part by one of his Chappie stars and original Alien bad-ass Sigourney Weaver. Even more surprising, he revealed that if he wanted to make the movie, he could.

Now it appears, believe it or not, that that’s exactly what Blomkamp is planning to do for his next project.
