Ridley Scott recently confirmed that he was in the early stages of developing a new Alien pic, which came as a surprise after the middling box office performance of Covenant appeared to have put the prequel series on hold. However, insider Daniel Richtman is now claiming that the latest entry isn’t going to be connected to the storyline that kicked off in Prometheus, and is being designed to launch an all-new trilogy instead.

“Ridley Scott is working on new Alien film not related to the prequels but this one is seems is also a prequel and will start a new trilogy,” he says.

Alas, there is nothing to discuss here. This is a fiction. Dead information.

I would welcome a new movie in the Alien franchise obviously. Although I would like to also see the final prequal finished up to see how it is all connected to Alien.

Here is a possible tie-in....most of the movie is about the Engineers on another planet doing something and then just parts of the film is how the eggs get on the Juggernaut on LV-426...we see how this concludes with the space jockey and then the last parts of the film ending near or around the chest burst.

It would be interesting to see Engineers arrive after the Nostromo leaves, having come from Planet 4 seeing what David did, then making plans for an attack on Earth.

I am pretty sure Daniel Richtman knows something, he was right in the past about the intention to bring back Ripley and now this confirms the words of Ridley Scott about working on a new Alien film.

It is not dead information.

Wait and see.

You should wait for this news on verified sites. Without links to WGTC, of course.

In addition, this is nothing more than information passed through a blender that we received at the beginning of the summer.

Daniel Richtman? Names don't matter. WGTC has already reported that Tarantino is starting filming the next Predator. And where?

When it comes to making movies we all know there is great secrecy studios employ. Movie studios in general are all trying to produce block buster films to make the most money - half a billion to over a billion with production budgets under a buck fifty - 150 million. 

Having stated this, these different production companies / studios are very competitive trying to position their releases at the most optimal time during the highest grossing months, middle of summer and end of the year. 

So when it comes to making movies there has to be operational  secrecy as to locations, characters, plots, special effects, and just overall what the movie will do in terms of being a competitor against any and all movies produced near the same time. 

If there was a new Alien moving closer to or into principle photography it would be doubtful that the general public would hear or be able to read anything about it.

I am not sure who that source is that Leto is dismissing; but, I agree with Leto that it is very difficult to get information out of these studios prematurely simply because they have so much competition. Movie studios are trying to lock in their profits while maintaining as much secrecy as possible during any phase of their production.

These studios only release relevant information to the general public exactly when they want them to hear it so they can make the most out of promotional marketing strategies.

When you are spending a tenth of billion to make a film and have competing studios also trying to earn billions out of the same audiences, you do not want just any internet desk editorial columnist leaking your production strategy. These inside movie sources can be dubious at best and highly unreliable.

You will know when there is a real Alien film because there will be a real trailer for it that has been released by the studio heads.
