Namely, it appears we will be getting much more from Ridley Scott than previously thought.
The filmamker gave away the possibility of a yet another pre-Alien trilogy, which should be in the works once “Alien: Covenant” and the subsequent installment (rumor has it will be called “Awakening”) are released.
The Elusive Timeline Of The Alien Movies
Ridley Scot and the Covenant star, Katherine Waterston, have recently been talking to Fandango magazine, and the filmmaker gave us the info on another outing, while he also ever-so-generously provided us with the basic timeline:
“There will be another one before we kind of literally and logically, clockwise, back into the original Alien,” said Scott. “It will go Prometheus, Awakening, Covenant… Fairly integral where this colonization ship is on the way.”
Another Trilogy Planned
Prior to his interview with Fandango, Scott mentioned his big plans for the future of the “Alien” franchise, more precisely – he talked about three more movies!
“If this is successful, and then the next one, and then there will definitely be three more.” These 3 installments are said to be set pre-Alien.
The filmmaker also confirmed that Noomi Rapace will be appearing in the upcoming movie, but it is still unclear in which role exactly:
“Yes, in a way. Not fully, but in a way. She was integral to what David (Michael Fassbender) carried out later.”
