Probably, the film will not return the viewer to the worlds of “Prometheus” and “Testament”.
Director Ridley Scott announced that he is working on another film in the Alien series, Forbes reports. At the same time, the director did not directly answer the question of what the new film will be about and whether it will be a continuation of Prometheus and Covenant.
According to Scott, the film is under development. “We have already tried to reinvent the wheel with ‘Prometheus’ and ‘Testament’. It is doubtful that we will return to this again, because “Prometheus” coped with it perfectly. You ask, is it really the Alien himself, the face-hugger and the chest-thump exhausted? Do you really need to rethink everything and just use a famous word for the sake of a franchise? This is always a fundamental question, ”said the director.
The first film in the Alien series, starring Sigourney Weaver, was released in 1979. It had several sequels directed by James Cameron, David Fincher, and Jean-Pierre Jeunet. The director of “Prometheus” was Scott himself. In total, the films in the franchise grossed $ 1.3 billion.
