Ridley Scott has revealed the 'Prometheus' sequels will bring the story back to the start of the 1979 film 'Alien'.

The 77-year-old director has planned the next three movies in the money-spinning sci-fi franchise and has teased how the series will evolve.

He told The Hollywood Reporter: "'Prometheus 1' was borne out of my frustration that on 'Alien 1' in 1979 - I only did one as I don't normally do sequels.

"I was amazed that in the three that followed that no-one asked the question, 'Why the Alien, who made it and why?' Very basic questions.

"So I came up with the notion of 'Prometheus 1', which starts to indicate who might have made it and where it came from."

And Ridley explained that the story will eventually come full circle.

He said: "So I'm now going to the next one, which is the next evolution directly connected with the first one, which was this [Elizabeth] Shaw, when he replaced Michael Fassbender in two pieces and we'll kind of pick it up there and it will evolve.

"When that's finished there'll be another one and then another one which will gradually drive into the back entrance of the film in 1979."
