Good article and pretty much covers a number of points i made on here over the last few weeks...    also including Terminator Genisys where despite a good return the budget and marketing spend meant they barely made double the money back AKA Broke Even.... i think they was hopping for a $550M+ return

And i think AC could fall into the same boat as they look to struggle to break even... i think FOX hoped to see this movie make $300M

So indeed a concern is do they lower the budget for the next movie, which could spell Doom....  or do they change the Plot a bit and put more money?

I can see FOX definitely pondering bringing some Ripley Connection to the next movie with hints in it to then connect to another Ripley movie.

They are going to try to kick Scott off the project and he's going to resist. After that either the whole thing will be put on hold indefinitely or they'll try to force Scott to share creative authorship with someone of their choosing.

If they were smart they'd get Nolan and let him select the writer. Then maybe Scott could give the broad strokes and Nolan can work with his writer to make it a legit Alien movie
