20th Century Fox wants more Alien movies. Speaking with Fandango, director Ridley Scott reveals that, as long as audiences come out for his Alien: Covenant when it hits theaters May 19, he got more movies planned for the future.
Scott even mysteriously dropped the title Alien: Awakening as a story that’s set in Prometheus and Covenant. Will a Covenant prequel be the next film in the Alien movies series? Check back for updates as they become available.
Alien: Covenant offers a new 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.
Covenant connects directly to Ridley Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. It begins with the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy. There, the crew discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David, a survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
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.
Alien: Covenant will open in theaters on May 19.
