Ridley Scott Teases Two More ‘ALIEN: COVENANT’ Sequels

Ridley Scott is now confirming that two more ALIEN: COVENANT sequels will happen instead of four. Recently, he spoke with Yahoo Movies about whether the next film, possibly called Awakening would be the end of the prequels.

“I don’t know. [I’ll make] maybe two more [films], or maybe one more, I don’t know.”

Back in March he told Fandango:

“There will be another one before we kind of literally and logically, clockwise, back into the rear back head of [the original] ALIEN… If this is successful, and then the next one, and then there will definitely be three more.

In addition to the Alien: Covenant sequels, Scott also spoke about the mixed reactions that Prometheus got.

“The fans, in a funny kind of way– they’re not the final word– but they are the reflection of your doubts about something, and then you realize ‘I was wrong’ or ‘I was right’. I think that’s where it comes in. I think you’re not sensible if you don’t actually take [the fans’ reaction] into account.”

Starring Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Demian Bachir, Jussie Smolett, Amy Seitmetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez, and Billy Crudup. Noomi Rapace is expected to reprise her role as Dr. Elizabeth Shaw, and James Franco as the Captain of the title ship.

Set as the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus, Alien: Covenant connects directly to Ridley Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. It begins with the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy. There, the crew discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world– whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

Ridley Scott directs once again from a screenplay by Jack Pagan and Michael Green.

Alien: Covenant hits theaters on May 19.
