Ridley Scott Sees ALIENS In The Future
It is no surprise that the director of the upcoming Alien: Covenant film, Ridley Scott, has already made plans to steer the ship of the Aliens franchise and produce more films, but he shocked fans with a sense of foresight avoided by most directors.
Rudely Scott already knows when he wants to start on the first of these sequels, 14 months from now. In an interview with IGN, Scott stated:
“we’re writing [a sequel] now, as we speak. I’ll be filming that in 14 months.”
Ridley Scott has also made it clear he wants to keep making Alien movies as long as the sequels are quality films that hold up to standard. There was rumored a fifth Alien film that was canned by Fox, and though Ridley Scott tried to resuscitate Neill Blomkamp’s aptly titled Alien: Awakening idea, it remains dead in the water as of now.
With Scott’s enthusiasm and with the first sequel already in production, there could be a chance that the Aliens franchise could be seeing a strong return to the saga.
