Ridley Scott confirms there is a new Aliens film in the works. But are we as die hard fans of the franchise really looking forward to it? Most of the premiers have been pretty divisive to say the least. He did say it is very unlikely to take place in the prequels universe which may be welcomed news to some.
“We went down a route to try and reinvent the wheel with Prometheus and Covenant,” Scott said. “Whether or not we go directly back to that is doubtful because Prometheus woke it up very well. 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.”
Since this is in the very early stages and Disney now owning fox properties. There is no news on a release date cast or any plot.
So what do you think? Wishful thinking on Ridley’s part of is a new Alien film likely?
