Director Ridley Scott has revealed 'Alien: Paradise Lost' will be followed by another sequel

'Alien: Paradise Lost' will be followed by another sequel.

Ridley Scott - who is returning to the iconic sci-fi franchise for the new movie - has revealed 'Prometheus 2' will start filming in the new year, and is set to answer some long-held questions about the series.

He told IGN: "'Prometheus 2' will start getting shot in February and I've already begun now so I know what the script is.

"Then there will be another one after that and then maybe we'll back into 'Alien 1', as to why? Who would make such a dreadful thing?"

Meanwhile, Ridley recently admitted the new movie has been called 'Alien: Paradise Lost' because it sounds "intellectual".

He said: "It's going to be 'Alien: Paradise Lost', so 'Prometheus 2' is not really going to be [what it's called].

"It's a book, 'Paradise Lost' ... it sounds intellectual, there's a similarity to it, but that's where it stops."

Ridley also explained how the new movie will fit into the context of the franchise.

He said: "We'll go back to how, why and when the beast was invented. We'll go into the backdoor of the first 'Alien' I did 30 years ago."

Alien: Covenant

  • 3 stars
  • 2017

  • Directed by: Ridley Scott
  • Written by: Michael Green
  • Cast: Michael Fassbender, Demián Bichir, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Jussie Smollett, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez
  • UK release: 12 May 2017

The spaceship Covenant ends up on an unknown planet littered with little egg things, which can’t be good. The latest in the franchise is basically an excuse for Scott’s fantastic visuals and a series of more or less ingenious variations on grisly death, although some will enjoy the spectacle of Fassbender kissing himself.
