Ridley Scott Teases Two Alien: Covenant Sequels, Not Four

Ridley Scott teases two more Alien: Covenant sequels, not four

Ridley Scott is now speaking about two more Alien: Covenant sequels instead of the four he mentioned earlier this year. In an interview with Yahoo Movies, Scott spoke 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.”

This differs from what he said to Fandango back in March of this year. Then, he stated, “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 speaking about the Alien: Covenant sequels, Scott spoke about the mixed reaction to Prometheus. He said, “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.”

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created with Alien: Covenant, a new chapter in his groundbreaking Alien franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.

Alien: Covenant stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, Benjamin Rigby, and James Franco.

John Logan (Spectre) and Dante Harper provided the Alien: Covenant screenplay. Alien: Covenant will open in theaters on May 19.
