Ridley Scott Opens Up About The Future of the 'Alien' Franchise

Ridley Scott is opening up about the future of the Alien franchise in a new interview.

The famed director revealed that another movie is in the works, but it likely won’t revisit the Prometheus world.

“That’s in process,” Ridley shared with Forbes. “We went down a route to try and reinvent the wheel with Prometheus and Covenant. Whether or not we go directly back to that is doubtful because Prometheus woke it up very well.”

He added, “But you know, you’re asking fundamental questions like, ‘Has the Alien himself, the facehugger, the chestburster, have they all run out of steam? Do you have to rethink the whole bloody thing and simply use the word to franchise?’ That’s always the fundamental question.”

The most recent Alien movie, called Alien: Resurrection, premiered in 1997.

Just recently, it was reported that this comedy movie will be getting a remake.
