A couple of months ago Ridley Scott gave a curious quote to a German website about the future of the Prometheus / Alien franchise. After being translated to German and back to English, the quote was a bit confusing, but basically indicated that Scott had plans for at least two Prometheus sequels. Prone as he sometimes is to excess and abrupt changes of mind, Scott has revealed that the upcoming Alien: Covenant is actually the first in a new trilogy that will eventually tie Prometheus to the original Alien film.

You see, when a male Xenomorph and a Queen Xenomorph love each other very, very much… Hopefully Ridley Scott will have a more eloquent explanation for the origins of the terrifying aliens designed by H.R. Giger, as the director has revealed that his Prometheus sequels will shine some light on where the mysterious creatures come from. Scott will have some additional assistance in that regard, as Spectre writer John Logan has come aboard to revise the screenplay for the sequel.

Although it was previously rumored that Ridley Scott’s Prometheus sequel Alien: Paradise Lost is delaying Neill Blomkamp’s direct Alien sequel, Scott recently clarified that both films will be arriving in the next two years, with Scott heading into production on his Alien prequel in February, and Blomkamp still at work in pre-production, as evidenced by his latest photo — which features a very familiar weapon.

Ridley Scott is heading into production on the newly-titled Alien: Paradise Lost early next year, which has reportedly pushed Neill Blomkamp’s separate Alien movie back just a bit to make room for the Prometheus sequel. Scott hasn’t been shy in discussing plans for the projects — particularly his own — and the director is at it again, teasing more plot details for Alien: Paradise Lost, as well as a potential release date for Blomkamp’s film.

Ridley Scott has been threatening us with Prometheus 2 ever since the first film left audiences baffled back in 2012. Now, riding high on rave reviews for The Martian, the legendary (and legendarily hit-and-miss) filmmaker has started talking about not just Prometheus 2, but Prometheus 3. And Prometheus 4. But don’t expect the next movie to have that title. In a new interview, Scott has revealed the follow-up to Prometheus will bear a title that directly connects it to the franchise that bore it.

The current state of the Alien franchise is a little confusing, to say the least. In one corner, you have Ridley Scott planning to make a sequel to his prequel, Prometheus. In the other corner, you have Neill Blomkamp, still plugging away at Alien 5, which may or may not ignore the third and fourth entries in the original series. In fact, the sheer amount of Alien stuff in the works seems to have clogged up the pipes. If a new report is to be believed, Blomkamp’s film is being put on the back burner until Scott can make Prometheus 2 a reality.

It was only a couple of months ago that we were posting updates on Neill Blomkamp’s Alien movie just about every other day, as the director was hit with a barrage of questions about the upcoming project during the press tour for Chappie (oh hey, remember Chappie?). It’s been a while since we got an update on Blomkamp’s Alien project, but the director has revealed a new piece of concept art featuring a couple of familiar faces.
