Director Ridley Scott wants to expand the Alien saga with a film that will move away from what Prometheus (2012) and Covenant (2017) offered us.
While talking about the popular sci-fi franchise in an interview, Ridley scott asked when fans of Alien they could wait for another movie. “That is in process,” he said, and went on to say that Prometheus and Alien: Covenant They tried to 'reinvent the wheel', but 'whether or not we return directly to them is doubtful because Prometheus woke him up so well. But you know, you're asking fundamental questions like … Has the Alien himself, the face hugger, the chest buster, run out of strength? “He added,” Do you have to rethink the whole damn thing and just use the word franchise? “
This isn't the first time Ridley Scott has talked about reworking the franchise. As he said last May: “I still think there is a lot of mileage in Alien, but I think now it will have to evolve again. What I always thought when I was doing it … Why a creature like this and why was he traveling in what I always thought was some kind of warship, carrying a load of these eggs? What was the purpose of the vehicle and what was the purpose of the eggs? What needs to be questioned: who, why and for what purpose is the following idea, I think ”. While Scott doesn't confirm how he's reimagining the role of Xenomorphs in the world or the galaxy, it appears he's rethinking his purpose on a stellar scale.
Prometheus marked the director's return to the franchise after a 33-year absence.
The film received mixed reviews from fans and the trade press, but it made a huge box office result with more than $ 403 million. But instead Alien: Covenant it only got 240 million. So it stopped any kind of expansion of the story. So Ridley Scott will return to the franchise but we will probably see different elements and other protagonists.
Currently, Ridley Scott is primarily focused on his new sci-fi drama television series of HBO Max, titled Raised by Wolves. He directed the first two episodes of the show, showing how androids would study humans and humanity's bleak landscape. Hopefully they will soon confirm when we can see the new Alien movie, although it has also been rumored that they could do a TV series.
