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.

“Particularly with this orange-headed fellow that’s running us, he’s a nutcase, isn’t he?” he said of Trump.

“[New York Gov. Andrew] Cuomo made a name for himself, he’s put himself on the map certainly. Looking at the globalization of the politicians that are running the world, half the time being run by idiots and the other time by despots, there are very few worthwhile ones, if you know what I mean. No one wants to go into politics. If anyone has half a brain they wouldn’t want to go into politics anyway, right?”

He also spoke about how he’d handle the crisis.

“I’m a war baby, so, in the war years, we had rationing. People could not binge on food, we had ration books with coupons where you were at a limited amount that you could buy. They should do that now because people are buying so much food and then the food is rotting…you must have order and calm.”

Many celebrities have called out Trump for the rhetoric coming out of the White House.
