Yeah, his last couple of efforts got decent reviews and turned a profit.

Sequel to Resurrection.
New version of Alien 3.
Sequel to Covenant.
New AvP film.
Midquel between Prometheus and Covenant.
Something else entirely.
Do nothing.

But according to number of people here, one particular course is the "only option".

Midquel would confuse everyone. By everyone, I mean, general audiences.

They have 4 realistic options:

1.- Sequel to Covenant.

2.- New A versus P.

3.- Do nothing.

4.- ALIEN V with a different director. I read FOX liked Blomkamp's ideas but they don't have faith in him as Director.

I think he's using his Alien ideas on Oats Volume 1.  He's not one to throw ideas away.

I had no idea SM and Hicks were high-up lever pullers at Fox.

Funny about that...

SM, that's too cryptic for me! Did you guys mention this to your contacts? Sorry - I'm still only half way down my coffee...

Sequel to Resurrection.

A sequel to the under-performing film in the franchise.  Won't happen.

Quote
New version of Alien 3.

Essentially a retcon.

Quote
Sequel to Covenant.

Already being made.

Quote
New AvP film.

After the last ones got such poor reviews?  Nope.

Quote
Midquel between Prometheus and Covenant.

That's likely to happen.  :P

Quote
Something else entirely.

TV series/streaming.  Maybe.

Quote
Do nothing.

Not so long as money exists.

I doubt you have any authority on the matter...

But hey, if I am talking to the wallet of FOX... can we please have conclusions for the storylines in Aliens: Colonial Marines and Alien : Isolation first?

No? Well then... anything is possible then I guess... :P

Well I can't speak for Hicks, but I'm not even on the same continent as the lever, nevermind pulling it.

Studios are predictable because they just want money.  But yeah, anything is possible given enough time.  I am talking within the next 5-10 years, though.

He's doing an AMA on Reddit this Thursday @ 9AM PST (4PM GMT). Why not ask him yourself?

Looks like its 5pm BST. I was planning on asking about that original Alien concept and who he envisioned replacing Carrie Henn if 3.2 had been made.

Thread is here.

Ha, he's just getting bombarded with questions. No way to answer them all. We'll see if he mentions any more details with regards to Alien 3.2.

Wouldn't surprise me if he had Dakota Fanning in mind for Newt.
