Ridley Scott’s ‘Alien: Covenant’ Is The Start Of A New Trilogy
  |  @   |  

Ridley Scott has changed the Prometheus sequel in the past few months since he’s gone on the press tour for The Martian. The film has gone through a couple of title changes and has even bumped Neill Blomkamp’s Alien 5 film into an indefinite hold – though some close to the film believe that it will still be made. But while at a press conference in Australia, Scott talked a little bit about his upcoming Alien film, which he says is the start of a brand new trilogy, which pretty much confirms that Blomkamp’s Alien 5 will not be happening any time soon, if at all.

Check out what he had to say below.

Neill Blomkamp’s ‘Alien’ Sequel Refuses To Die, Even After He’s Moved On
  |  @   |  

So we all know that Ridley Scott‘s Alien: Covenant pretty much forced Neill Blomkamp‘s Alien to be put on hold indefinitely. That rumor was going on for a while even before it got confirmed. Though it was still early at the time, Sigourney Weaver said that Blomkamp’s Alien would be a genetic sibling to the first two Alien films, and the District 9 director confirmed that it would be connected to the first two, then try to establish that bridge between Aliens and Alien 3.

Weaver said she wanted to “take Ripley out of sort of orbiting around in space and give a proper finish to what was such an excellent story.” Now, new details are emerging on how that would have happened. In an interview, Michael Biehn, who played Corporal Dwayne Hicks in James Cameron’s Aliens, talked about Blomkamp’s vision, which would have reunited him with Ripley and an older Newt. Check out his full quote below.

Neill Blomkamp Moves On From ‘Alien 5’ To Time Traveling ‘The Gone World’

So maybe Neill Blomkamp‘s Chappie wasn’t the hit that Sony expected it to be, and maybe Ridley Scott’s Alien: Paradise Lost took precedence over his Alien film, but that isn’t stopping the director from filmmaking. In fact he will simply put his Alien 5 film on hold.

While that is happening, he looks to be staying at Fox for a while as he is now in talks to write and direct an adaptation of Thomas Sweterlitsch‘s novel The Gone World. More on this story below.

Neill Blomkamp’s ‘Alien’ Sequel On Hold Pending ‘Prometheus 2’
  |  @   |  

When Ridley Scott announced that Prometheus 2 would actually be Alien: Paradise Lost, there were a few wondering what would be happening to Neill Blomkamp’s Alien 5. After all Sigourney Weaver did sign on for at least two Alien films, and the actress did speak about the film that would have been a genetic sibling to the first two Alien films. Not to mention Blomkamp recently confirmed that the pulse rifle would be making a return.

But there were rumors that Scott insisted that Prometheus 2 (which is what it was called at the time) be made first. This essentially would have delayed Blomkamp’s Alien 5, giving more time to the director to work on his script. Now that rumor is starting to look more like a reality as Blomkamp has confirmed that his Alien 5 has been delayed indefinitely. More on the story here below.
