06/12/17 - Alien: Covenant sequel is happening

news picRidley Scott has confirmed that he's still planning on bringing an Alien: Covenant sequel to the big screen.

After Alien: Covenant was poorly received at the box office there was much doubt cast on any likelihood of another movie in the series.

In a recent interview, Scott said: "We are [going to make another], we are. I think what we have to do is gradually drift away from the alien stuff. People say, 'You need more alien, you need more face pulling, need more chest bursting,' so I put a lot of that in Covenant and it fitted nicely. But I think if you go again you need to start finding another solution that's more interesting."

John Carpenter, who directed the 1981 original has given his approval to the finished screenplay.

One of the most terrifying sentences I've ever heard in my life is 'we've given the script to John Carpenter'. I crawled around for three days thinking 'oh my god' but we got John Carpenter's seal of approval. He approved it and that's all I need. You never quite know [if it's done] but I might need to do some rewrites and do some nip and tuck but in the first approximation, my job is done."

[Not Sirens], it's a totally separate one.
