Ridley Scott in tune with where Alien: Covenant 2 will go!

Ridley Scott in tune with where Alien: Covenant 2 will go!

Ridley Scott is ready for Alien: Covenant 2 and knows exactly where the sequel will go, according to a recent interview with the renowned filmmaker. Since the merger between the Walt Disney Company and 21st Century Fox, the fate of Scott's Covenant sequel remains uncertain, but Scott remains confident that the Alien legacy, specifically his Prometheus saga will be continued regardless of who owns the rights.

Speaking to DigitalSpy, Scott was quoted saying:

I’m in tune with where Covenant 2 would go. We already know what we’d do with that. You’ve got to have a fundamental platform and target where you would take it. It’s a bit like having the skeleton before the meat goes on.

He also reiterates a statement he made last month, where he insinuated that Disney would be crazy not to continue on with the Alien: Covenant storyline:

I'm hoping I'll still probably be there so whether or not they go ahead with such a dark subject, being Disney, as aliens remains to be seen. I think they should because I think, when people have a hard and fast franchise which has ongoing interest, it's crazy not to do something with it.

Previously talks were reignited concerning the dormant Alien 5 project by Neill Blomkamp after new concept art was released online.

However, although intriguing and clearly exciting to some, Blomkamp recently clarified that he had indeed moved on from the project - once again leaving fans hanging on whether or not the film would ever actually get made.

So, with Alien 5 seemingly remaining in development hell for the foreseeable future, a sequel to Alien: Covenant seems more likely for Disney to pursue. We're with Scott on this one, the liklihood of Covenant 2 / Alien Awakening coming to fruition is not a matter IF but a matter of WHEN. The Alien franchise is far from over and Disney knows this.

I really hope to see the his conclusion! A:C could have been better, but the ideas are there and if he has a bit more focused script for the next one it should wrap up his storyline perfectly.

If he claims he already knows where to go next, did he at least understood why AC underperformed? Grant him his wish...

Keeping my fingers crossed so that he can finish what he started.

I'm okay if they finish with a book, graphic novel or an audio series/radio drama......Just make it canon.

Let the man make his movie. He doesnt get any younger. Personally, i dont want a Bloomkamp Alien 5 or whatever. I love the themes he explored with Prometheus and AC. Hopefully the next one will answer some critical questions though.

"If he claims he already knows where to go next, did he at least understood why AC underperformed? Grant him his wish..."

It appears they did have a idea and i would assume had the whole broad strokes to where AC will lead to Alien, as of when they was on the cutting room for AC.   During the Marketing for AC, it appears they had the whole idea for the next one down and was in the process of finishing a Draft for it.

This was confirmed when RS had said they hoped to get shooting for it done within 14 Months (been July 2018) and then a release 9 Months latter... which would be April 2019 and who knows.. i would safely assume thus they may have been targeting a April 26th 2019 Release Date so that it would be Alien Day and 40th Anniversary of Alien.   Thats Marketing Heaven there..

However.... once the Box Office Results and Criticism came in for AC, you can be sure FOX/RS have had to take a back step and look at WHY did AC not do as well as expected.

Ridley Scott had already had the Path to Alien Planned out, and i think his Crazy Remark is that now they have began the STEPS towards ALIEN which AC was the Start, the Next movie no doubt would have set up a 3RD that would have maybe connected to Alien.   I think RS believes while they had started these it would be Crazy to abandon them.
