A few ideas for Alien movies if Ridley Scott were not to be involved?3 Upvotes20 RepliesUpvoteAdd A Reply
I know this may sound blasphemous for many. But what if Ridley Scott would leave the Alien franchise? Let's speculate about the directors and casts you would like to see lined up for the perfect Alien movie. What all these movies have in common is that in all of them, the Xenomorph reigns supreme.
Here some examples:
Franchise sold to to Disney, this is a direct sequel to "Aliens")
Directed by: JJ Abrams
Elizabeth Winstead as Ripley (she looks just like her)
Chloe Grace Moretz (Newt)
Bill Skarsgard (sythetic)
Xenomorph count: untold numbers
"Alien: Game Over"
Directed by: Jordan Peele (Of "Get Out" fame, can make a 5 million investment into 200 million return)
Written By Jordan Peele, a very fun, action packed and original take on Alien
Zoe Zaldana (Captain Nostromo II)
Tom Hardy (Second in command)
Sigourney Weaver (older Ripley)
Rami Malek (synthetic)
Michael Fassbender (evil A.I., secondary character, Michael Fassbender is a character actor!)
Xenomorph number: under wraps
"Alien: Awakening" (takes place in the colony planet the Covenant was heading to)
Directed by David Fincher (he gets a second chance, with no interference from the studios!)
Screenplay by: Newbie (no rewrites, Newbie just happens to be brilliant)
Starring: Jennifer Lawrence (colonist)
Daniel Craig (colony superintendent)
Miles Teller (colonial marine)
Gal Gadot (synthetic, pleasure model)
Armie Hammer (Jennifer Lawrence's husband) Katherine Waterston (cameo)
Xenomorph count: As many as there are colonists
"Alien: Engineers" (taking place on the Engineers homeworld, this would be a fanboy wet dream about Alien mythology)
Directed & produced by Guillermo del Toro
Emma Stone (Earth envoy)
Tom Hiddleston (Jesus Christ clone)
Mia Wasikowska (synthetic)
Xenomorph count: A planet full of them
Waiting to be produced...
haha no I made them up. I was inviting people to have fun making their own projects
There could be a movie about a team sent by Weyland-Yutani whose objective is to capture a live xeno.
Directed by James Wan!
After the Covenant ship got exposed by gamma radiation after Davids failed attempt, several cryo-egg got severed damaged.
10 Years after the accident almost half of the new population got down syndrome, causing a new breed of xenos to rise to power. The xenotard.
Daniels is faced with this new, uncontrollable alien that has NO remorse what so ever.
Rated R. (expect sloppy editing and gruesome images).
Come on, clovenberg2 just tell us what would you like to see in an Alien movie. I know what you don't like already :-)
Alien: Egg Royale
Directed by Quentin Tarantino
Screenplay by Guy Ritchie
Space pirate ship returns to earth with the wrong cargo, which belongs to Weyland Yutani. The crew head out back into space to avoid Weyland Yutani bounty hunters and find a derelict craft on an unknown planetoid on which to dump the cargo. Time is against them as the cargo comes to life.
Peter Weyland ( Samuel L Jackson)
Artificial Person (Christopher Waltz)
Head Bounty Hunter (Vinnie Jones)
Jennifer Jason Leigh (Pirate Queen)
Johnny Depp ( Ships Captain)
Jim Carrey ( Cargo handler)
Xeno Count: One that is impossible to kill, and a shit load of facehuggers.
Batchpool Haha that's a bonzo one! I bet Tarantino would come up with something unexpected
James wan/leigh wannell
Mark duplass (hey he could write it too!)
Well, it is inevitable that R. Scott will retire at some point, given his age. NO one can work forever after all.
Great topic!! Some of the casting suggestions and director choices above would be really choice!!
*Man's giant leap was just a stumble in the dark.*
I dont think so about an early Ridley retirement, as director is more restless and visceral than G. Lucas for example. He can bring us great new releases linked or not to Alien Universe.
I think you misunderstood me.
I was simply stating that at some point, R. Scott will have to step-down...granted that might mean when he's over 100 yrs old and drops dead while working on an ALIEN film, but age and mortality are what they are.
I just hope it's not for a good and long time to come!

I would like to see an Alien movie written by the best sci-fi writer working today: Alex Garland ("28 Days later", "Judge Dredd" reboot, "Ex Machina", "Annihilation")
As the rouge A.I, David 8 (Michael Fassbender) continues his quest to enlightenment and perfection of his deadly lifeform, he slowly begins to take the steps to become the one creator/destroyer of the known galaxy. Across the stars, another newly freed sentient being "Calvin, or Cal" a WY Goliath Series Android must begin his own quest, to rid the galaxy of "THEE" David 8, while preserving mankind's faith in the safety and comfort of deep space travel provided by Weyland-Yutani. As the net closes, and light has been shed upon David's doings, the agenda of Wetland-Yutani's original desires change, at all costs, all assets expendable. But Calvin is free now, and the strings of The Company, and Voice of Muthur no longer affect him. His only concern and purpose lay ahead, and he will not rest until the self proclaimed "Creator" David bows before him.
Micheal Fassbender as "David 8"
Michael Shannon as "Calvin"
Liev Schreiber as "W/Y Security Officer Lucius Forge"
Carrie-Anne Moss "Captain Delma Gardner" W-Y StarShip: Absalom
Guy Pierce as "The Late Mr. Weyland"
Hugo Weaving as "Dr. Stuart Solomon" Quality Control W/Y Android Division"
Directed By Ron Howard
Produced by Ridley Scott
Well Slab_bay your version seems more in line with the new direction the franchise is taking. And I am sure Michael Shannon can kick David's butt LOL
And yes, it's about time we get that damn Quality Control W/Y Android Division, or a Robopsychology specialist like Susan Calvin in Isaac Assimov's stories.
