Its still two months away from the release of Alien: Covenant but Sir Ridley Scott is already prepping more Alien movies. In fact, he’s already got a title for the next one.
‘There will be another one before we kind of literally and logically, clockwise, back into the rear back head of [the original] Alien. It will go Prometheus, Awakening, Covenant,’ said Scott in a recent interview with Fandango. “It will go Prometheus, Awakening, Covenant.. fairly integral where this colonization ship is on the way….” says the director.
Main takeaway: not only will there be another Alien movie, Scott is already working on it with a title in place called Awakening which presumably completes a trilogy and more coming our way, contingent on how Covenant and Awakening performs. “If this is successful, and then the next one, and then there will definitely be three more,” Scott added.
Having this new Awakening film sandwiched between Prometheus and the upcoming Covenant suggests a non-linear timeline of these three movies. So let’s not even get into how confusing that is, and just enjoy the ride and see what the master has in store this summer.
Alien: Covenant, starring Michael Fassbender, James Franco and Katherine Waterston, is due to hit cinemas on May 12.
