Alien: Covenant (upcoming Prometheus sequel)
08/04/2015 12:41 AM EST


Sequel to the 2012 Alien universe spin-off/prequel that explores the nature of the 1979 film's "space jockey" and humanity's search for answers in the stars. Second film to see Michael Fassbender return as the android David and likely Noomi Rapace. Ridley Scott will reportedly direct again.

- Ridley Scott’s ‘Prometheus 2′ to Start Filming in January

Director Ridley Scott will begin shooting “Prometheus 2′′ in January. According to the latest issue of Total Film (via SciFied), the film will enter production alongside Neill Blomkamp’s “Alien 5,” so that Scott — who will executive produce Blomkamp’s vision — can keep the film series’ mythology from contradicting.

Seemingly ends speculation and indecision about whether or not Scott will direct the sequel. Hope it's accurate reporting!

- Ridley Scott Confirms ‘Prometheus 2′ is His Next Film

Seemingly confirming a report from earlier this month, director Ridley Scott says the sequel to 2012’s “Prometheus” will be his next film.

The word comes in an interview with “Empire,” which asked the filmmaker about the decision to shift the release of his sci-fi drama “The Martian” from Nov. 25 to Oct. 2. “I was already on to my next movie!” Scott said. “I was starting to look for locations for my next movie, which is ‘Prometheus 2.’”

Scott famously proclaimed last year that “the beast is done,” and has promised to introduce “a fresher form of alien” in “Prometheus 2.”

“If I see one more dragon I’m going to shoot myself,” he said last year. “Stop the dragons. [The original Alien] is the definitive dragon and he’s a motherfucker. The alien’s real, which is why it’s probably one of the scariest monsters in film history. So with ‘Prometheus 2′ what I’m trying to do is reintroduce a fresher form of alien in the third act.”


Excitement!

- Ridley Scott Says 'Prometheus 3' Or 'Prometheus 4' Will Finally Connect With 'Alien'

Doing the rounds for "The Martian," the director recently spoke to German site FilmFutter and revealed "Prometheus" has its own story to tell before it eventually ties into the movie that started it all. "...it won’t be in the next one. It will be in the one after this one or maybe even a fourth film before we get back into the 'Alien' franchise," he said. Hoo boy. I guess that search for the Engineers will take a bit longer than expected.

"The whole point of it is to explain the 'Alien' franchise and to explain the how and why of the creation of the Alien itself. I always thought of the Alien as a kind of piece of bacterial warfare. I always thought that that original ship, which I call the Croissant, was a battleship, holding these biomechanoid creatures that were all about destruction," Scott added.


Article describes Prometheus as 'promising' to be a prequel to Alien. All I ever saw was attempts to distance it from those films - which I think was a bit of a mistake and contributed to mixed reactions. It clearly is connected to Alien and any attempt to disconnect the first film is only going to exacerbate unfavorable comparison with a tinge of confusion. That said - more Prometheus that drifts away from Alien could be nice.

- Ridley Scott reveals (some) plot info for Alien: Paradise Lost, explains the name

Things are most certainly moving forward with Prometheus 2, which recently received the official title Alien: Paradise Lost. And while that title clearly links the project to the main Alien franchise, it’s the second part of the moniker that Ridley Scott would have us pay attention to...

“Have you ever read Paradise Lost, by Milton?” asked Scott of Collider. “In a funny kind of way, it’s an interesting basis for the darkness of [Prometheus 2]. Where the good-looking guy, who is evil as shit, gets all the girls and goes to the nightclubs. The other guy, who is not quite as good-looking, is boring as hell and stays home. So in a funny kind of way, we used that as the basis for it.

“It’ll be Alien: Paradise Lost,” he says, “which is very spooky, because it continues after the last one, where Elizabeth Shaw [Noomi Rapace] says, ‘I wanna go where they came from.’ And you’ve got Michael Fassbender in two parts, so she’ll slowly put him back together. They will go to the world of the Engineer. That’s where they’re going to go. They will find out who would design such an awful bio-mechanoid creature, like a massive piece of bacteria.”


Much as it was silly to deny the first film's heritage, I'm not sure I like flat-out putting Alien in the title. This does sound like it could plausibly be one of those quotes where it's a concept reference, though, and was mistakenly (or for purposes of clicks) taken literally by source. Dunno. Probably legit.

- RIDLEY SCOTT SETTLES ON A NEW NAME FOR ‘PROMETHEUS 2’... AGAIN



Ridley Scott has finally settled on a title for his upcoming sequel to PROMETHEUS (and sadly, it is not PROMETHEUS 2: XENOMORPH BOOGALOO). For a while it was going by the name ALIEN: PARADISE LOST but now Scott revealed and 20th Century Fox has confirmed that the movie will arrive bearing the somewhat less flowery title ALIEN: COVENANT. They even released a shiny new title treatment and surely nobody would bother doing that unless the title was really and truly officially official.

In an interview with IGN last week, Scott briefly discussed his new hands-on approach to the franchise, expressing regret that he let the series “get away from me”. Scott’s enthusiasm is encouraging but he shouldn’t lose too much sleep over not keeping a tighter rein on the series. For one thing, it’s not as if he didn’t have other things to do in the intervening years. More importantly, despite some missteps and creative dead ends, the ALIEN series has actually benefited from being filtered through multiple directorial visions.


Lo and behold. Still of the opinion Paradise Lost was probably misquoted as the official title, just part of a conversation. More info and discussion in the article.

Had better hair in Prometheus. (Fassbender, not Scott. Scott looks like a mighty lion).

It's going to feature Ripley's mom. But aside from that, the movie sounds exciting. I liked Prometheus.

- Noomi Rapace Joins ‘Alien: Covenant’

Sources say Rapace is in Australia and on the set to shoot weeks worth of scenes in Scott’s film, which brings back Fassbender’s robot character and has a cast that includes Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride and Demian Bichir. Info is on lockdown, so we’ll have to wait for the film to be released August 4, 2017, by Fox to see how it all worked out.

New poster, new date. May 19.

Not sure how I feel about them leaning on Alien more. I thought they went too far the other way in promotion for Prometheus, but I did appreciate and look forward to more of a tangent in the series.

- Katherine Waterston takes aim in new Alien: Covenant photo



If 2012’s kinda-sorta Alien prequel Prometheus was confusing, Scott says this film will provide some answers. ­“Covenant is really going to show you who did it and why.”

Michael Fassbender returns as David alongside Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Jussie Smollet, and — looking an awful lot like a certain heroine of old — Katherine Waterston, who most recently starred in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
