A new interview has appeared on MovieWeb and Ridley Scott made a minor comment about Alien 5 and basically said that the alien franchise has been overtaken by AvP.
Off the subject a bit… would you have any interest in doing a fifth Alien film?
Ridley Scott: I think the franchise has maybe now been disengaged with Alien vs. Predator.
I have to agree with him. What gets me is that Ridley Scott, Cameron and Weaver all want to do Alien 5 but Fox just won’t give them the chance.
