Third Alien Prequel Will Have Less Alien, More Robot Says Ridley Scott

Third Alien prequel will have less alien, more robot says Ridley Scott

Although 20th Century Fox‘s Alien: Covenant underperformed at the box office, director Ridley Scott insists to Entertainment Weekly that there will still be a third Alien prequel. Not only that, he says it will move away from Xenomorphs, Engineers and Deacons to focus more on the dangers of Artificial Intelligence, as represented by Michael Fassbender’s synthetic android David.

“We are [going to make another], we are,” Scott said. “I think what we have to do is gradually drift away from the alien stuff. People say, ‘You need more alien, you need more face pulling, need more chest bursting,’ so I put a lot of that in ‘Covenant’ and it fitted nicely. But I think if you go again you need to start finding another solution that’s more interesting. I think AI is becoming much more dangerous and therefore more interesting.”

Ridley Scott returned to the universe he created with Alien: Covenant, the latest 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 has brought in over $240 million at the global box office since release.
