Ridley Scott injured on the set of Alien: Covenant!

Ridley Scott injured on the set of Alien: Covenant!

Director Ridley Scott was in a Forklift collision recently on the set of Alien: Covenant, which is currently filming in Sydney, Australia. According to The Daily Telegraph, Scott was preoccupied with reading script pages and collided with the Forklift, damaging his wrist. However, sources say Scott remained extremely professional throughout the incident and now sports a black cast on-set.

Everyone on set was so worried the guy driving the fork lift was going to cop a spray, but Ridley took it like a man, apologises and said it was his fault and just got on with it.

We're wishing Ridley a speedy recovery and the best of luck while he continues filming Alien: Covenant!

The state of the Alien: Covenant sequel continues to remain uncertain.

Sure. A "forklift" accident. Uh huh. I hear it can get very lonely on location...

FacehuggerMember488 XPJun-23-2016 7:32 PMIt's heat happens when you have a cigar in one hand, a glass of brandy in the other and the script in ur lap...


PraetorianMember2674 XPJun-24-2016 3:24 AM

Phew, this had me worried, till I found out it was a wrist injury!

Props to Ridley for accepting it was his fault and not going off the deep end!

On doctors orders Ridley cut down his cigar intake. No more interviews or images with him brandashing a big cigar! :)


XenomorphMember1263 XPJun-24-2016 5:54 AM

Whoa! Sounds like he's okay!?  

Get well soon!


DeaconMember10136 XPJun-24-2016 8:12 AM

Good news its nothing serious but you have to be careful at his Age, but he is one Tough SOB...

Hope he recovers well soon


OvomorphMember5 XPJun-25-2016 8:36 PM

Hope he recovers as soon as possible. At his age with these types of breaks he will have arthritis in it for the rest of his life. I remember when we lost HR Giger in 2014 from a fall, very tragic that we lost such a genius from such a simple injury.

Hi everyone, have not been able to say hello in a while. Here's a big hello to everyone. BigDave its been a long time but I have moved to Florida and its hot here. I cannot wait till this new movie comes out. Lets hope this one delivers. Oh and BigDave by the way last time we chatted I think I said the Martian was going to flop horribly. Shows you how wrong I was about that film. That was an incredible epic SCI-FI
film. How did I ever doubt Scott's genius. Anyway BigDave you were right it was a great film.

Please everyone say hello...and lets chat about Alien Covenant.


PraetorianMember2674 XPJun-26-2016 2:11 AM

Hey Redant, it's great to see some familiar faces back on site for Covenant! :)

Thank the lord it wasn't a bad injury. Knowing Ridley he will just carry on like the workaholic genius he is!

I hope Covenant turns out totally awesome, and shuts up the naysayers once and for all!

He'll be fine. He's a tough northerner.


PraetorianMember2674 XPJun-26-2016 6:42 AM

He sure is!

Apparently he played a lot of tennis, and had a knee replacement in 2010. 


OvomorphMember5 XPJun-26-2016 7:18 AM

Hi Lone, Hi Necronom 4. I feel at a disadvantage trying to discuss Alien Covenant. I just saw the cast yesterday and the fact that Noomi Rapace has taken so long to negotiate a contract with the producers has me a bit worried. 

Just as a side note I really like the new site. It took me a bit to understand how to navigate it.

Anyway, once again just getting my barrings on this new movie. I know nothing about the script or who is writing what...So for the time being any help with understanding this all would be greatly appreciated. As I stated to BigDave I am living in Tampa Florida. I moved here three years ago and Im married now which is strange for me because I have been a geek for so long. Little secret guys my wife is a sci-fi geek too; so she is happy about all this. She has taken a real interest in the site and I am hoping to introduce her as soon as possible. 

Thank you all for the warm welcome back.


PraetorianMember2674 XPJun-26-2016 7:54 AM
