It’s been rumoured that a new Alien movie is in the works with Ridley Scott directing, and it won’t be related to Scott’s previous prequel movies. However, according to Daniel Richtman’s sources, this will be a prequel film.
According to Richtman, Scott will be making a new Alien prequel movie, however, he also stated that it wouldn’t be related to the main franchise or the previous prequel movies he made. Scott has made two Alien prequel movies previously: Prometheus and Alien: Covenant.
He made those movies back when the Alien franchise was with 20th Century Fox. Currently, the Alien franchise is now with Disney after they acquired Fox and got hold of all their movie properties.
A New Alien prequel movie with Ridley Scott directing is rumoured to be in the works
Here’s what Daniel Richtman said in his article (on his Patreon page) regarding this rumoured Alien prequel movie directed by Ridley Scott:
Ridley Scott is working on new Alien film not related to the prequels but this one it seems is also a prequel and will start a new trilogy.
I have an undying love for Scott’s first-ever Alien movie. When people ask me what my favourite movie of all time is, I always say Alien is in my top five. I can never really give a number one.
However, his following Alien films weren’t great. Personally, I did enjoy these recent ones, especially Michael Fassbender’s performance in them. However, they never really came close to Ridley Scott’s original movie.
