It’s not definite that we’re even going to get any more Alien films as 2oth Century Fox have put the series on hold following the disappointing box office performance of Alien: Covenant, despite the fact that it was largely demand from fans that led him to bring back the Xenomorphs. However, Ridley Scott is still passionate about this franchise and detailed his vision for the next instalment to The Empire Film Podcast.

“I think the evolution of the Alien himself is nearly over. But what I was trying to do was transcend and move to another story, which would be taken over by A.I.’s. The world that the AI might create as a leader if he finds himself onto a new planet. We have actually quite a big layout for the next one.”

Scott has previously said that he wants the prequel franchise to bridge directly into the original Alien, but it seems pretty clear that his real focus is on Michael Fassbender’s David and the idea of artificial intelligence.  The end of Alien: Covenant sent David off to a brand new planet, Origae-6, where he’ll presumably be free to play God and create his own world – though he did bring Face Hugger embryos aboard the ship…

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
