In an interview with Kaya Savas, Gregson-Williams spoke about his beginnings and career as film composer, but during discussion about his work with late Tony Scott he mentioned that he also did music for numerous Ridley Scott movies from Kingdom of Heavens (replaced Jerry Goldsmith), to Prometheus. Prometheus was actually composed by Marc Streitenfeld, but Ridley brought Harry to compose few more tracks for the movie, so he did two important tracks (Life and We Were Right). Williams also collaborated on music for Exodus, and composed full soundtrack for Ridley's latest movie Martian, after finished speaking about those soundtracks Harry officially confirmed that he will be doing full soundtrack for ALIEN: COVENANT. So thats it. Harry also noted that he adores to compose tense music with strange spooky atmospheres, adding that he always very much admired Ridley's specific way of filmmaking and very sharp eye for important details. He said that he ll start composing Alien sometime near the end of the year. Harry also expresed how excited he is about Alien: Covenant project... So if he is to start composing in November (for example), that means that movie is all done by that time. So why publishing it in the October of 2017?

The future of Alien
The Alien franchise is taking a dramatic turn at 20th Century Studios, now owned by Disney. Currently there are two major Alien projects in development - a new Alien TV series by Noah Hawley and a new, stand-alone Alien movie being directed by Fede Alvarez. Both of which will be taking the franchise in a new direction - moving away from the Alien prequel direction Ridley Scott set out to pursue back in 2012.
