Sir Ridley Scott Thinks Alien Should Be On “Same Level For Fans as Star Trek and Star Wars”

In a recent interview with The Toronto Sun Sir Ridley Scott spoke a little more about his thoughts on the Alien series when asked if Daniels and Tennessee would be returning for Alien: Covenant 2 (aka Alien: Awakening).

“I think they have to. There’s no reason why Alien should now not be on the same level for fans as Star Trek and Star Wars. So I think the next step as to where we go is, do we sustain the Alien (series) with the evolution of the beast or do we reinvent something else? I think you need to have an evolution on this famous beast because he’s the best monster ever, really.”

The Toronto Sun also asked him if the next Alien film was still on the cards. Scott responded that he “would like to; they’re crazy if they don’t. David is a fantastic villain. I love what (Michael Fassbender) did in Covenant. But it’s f—ing hard, dude. We lifted Alien out of a ditch and made Prometheus.”

A recent article from the folk over at Omega Underground states that 20th Century Fox had been serious about moving forward with Alien: Covenant 2 and had, at one point, considered a Summer 2018 for shooting.

According to HumanMedia, a member of the Blu-Ray.com forums who claims to have worked on Alien: Covenant, the sequel was originally scheduled to begin pre-production in September 2017 but was shelved after the tepid box office response to Alien: Covenant.

“The sequel to Covenant was originally due to start preproduction this month in Sydney. After the box office results filming was cancelled, and a warehouse storage unit full of stuff was auctioned off a few months ago. So the original plan of pumping out another quickly has definitely changed with no immediate plans for anything.”

    QuoteThe deal, announced last month, saw Disney buy 21st Century Fox's entertainment assets for $52.4 billion (£39bn).That means that the rather kid-unfriendly Alien movies are now the House of Mouse's property – though director Ridley Scott is keen for Disney to keep the franchise going.

    "It looks to me that the Fox deal is certainly going to go ahead with Disney, and I've been with Fox for a number years now," the All the Money In the World director told Digital Spy.

    "I'm hoping I'll still probably be there so whether or not they go ahead with such a dark subject, being Disney, as aliens remains to be seen.

    He added: "I think they should because I think, when people have a hard and fast franchise which has ongoing interest, it's crazy not to do something with it."

    Scott said he backed the deal, however, showing admiration for Disney and its business sense.

    "I think it's great," he continued. "I think it's very good for Disney. Of all the studios they're far ahead of their game for having a prepared, thought through demographic for the kind of films they're making – for who they're making them for.

    "That's why they're so successful. And they draw the line at anything that crosses PG-13.

    "[If] they find that they're so successful with that that they want to cross the line and do something a little darker, and if they do that, do they want to do that under Disney or do they want to do that under the Fox banner? I think there's a business plan afoot definitely."

    As for what direction the next Alien movie could go in, the director continued: "I'm in tune with where Covenant 2 would go. We already know what we'd do with that.

    "You've got to have a fundamental platform and target where you would take it. It's a bit like having the skeleton before the meat goes on."

    Great  ::)

    Have fun with another lame movie about androids which is labeled with the name Alien. Another mediocre film which will disappoint at the box office.
    At least with Disney we might not have to wait another 4-8 years for a real Alien film.

    I for one will boycot another Ridley movie and I know others will do the same. Even if this will be the last one.

    Watch out, the next Alien film will be cancelled if studio executives read this post.

    I wrote somewhere else this might be Disney negotiating with Scott. They've given him this Film first, just to see how he works them and if successful, they'll let him shoot Awakening.

    I guess Cartel is off the cards and this will take over its place. Bummer.

    Sicario 2 already is coming out next year. Scott would be wise to just do the Merlin project instead.

    Honestly, I think they just wanted to make an A/P movie and had to deal with the crappy story they had to use. That's the impression I got from chatting to Crom in the last podcast.

    They did not help themselves with the nostalgia carpet-bombing they did throughout the movie. Having Brian Tyler basically lift the entire soundtrack of Aliens and Predator.

    I mean yeah, the movie would have probably been better from a premise standpoint if they went with "Predator ship crashes in Afghanistan and special forces guys have to fight the aliens and predators." Because it would have at least lent a closer to feel to the spirit of the second AVP comic (Duel? War? I can't remember. The one with the marines on Ryushi.)

    A good director can take a treacherous premise and make a good movie out of it. AVP:R had potential to be good. The problem is the Strause bros just wouldn't restrain themselves.

    The problem with Prometheus and Covenant is fairly simple. You give Scott a coherent script, and he'll likely give you a coherent movie. Spaihts gave him a fairly coherent, albeit scattershot, script. Lidelof, not so much. To a degree you can blame this on the excised bits in editing, but not in totality.

    Exactly, I believe that's the main problem now. He'll make a great movie if he gets a great script. I just worry how much does he influence the writing because that's not his strong side.
    The thing that surprised me was that nothing too important was left out from the edit in Covenant (though it'd be nice to see Walter mention how it's dangerous that David hasn't been maintained for 10 years), unlike in Prometheus where the deleted scenes helped the movie IMO. So at least that's getting better now.
    This time, a few ideas from the script just weren't filmed or used in Covenant that I believe would have been nice, like the idea of the storm being some type of planetary security, or the lesser needed ideas like Neo's stalking the crew through the forest, or even the short Xeno vs Neo fight, though that could've been cheesy... the best part of that idea would've just been to show the superiority of the Alien for people who asked the logical question: Spores? Then how is the Alien better with it's slower, less stealthy life-cycle? Then the answer would be: Alien is stronger than the Neo.  :laugh:

    I got the impression the comments might be a veiled way of showing that he's aware that the young & faltering Blomkamp is trying to circumnavigate him again.

    You guys read too much into things. Ridley doesn't have time nor the interest to keep tabs on Neill.

    He may be commenting based on the initial interest in Blomkamp, and his general view on young directors wanting to find the shortest route to the top rather than build experience - and the advantage such naivety gives to the studio bosses, rather than any new concept art posts.

    He had a hard enough time on ALIEN and Blade and after years of experience in art direction, adverts, live TV directing and a movie he still had to fight to get his vision seen. He values being able to know through experience the best way to avoid wasting money.

    I say Ridley is saying this because he knows now that Disney has it, they are going to apply their STAR WARS formula and wont give him the same amount of control. And he is probably right. They wont let him have free-reign. The irony is that this is probably a good thing if Scott is willing to play ball with Disney, they will demand a certain level of entertainment value.

    They will essentially approach the franchise as a Miniseries and use someone as a Creative Producer, and then either that will be Scott with him directing (like JJ and Star Wars), or they will offer Scott the chance to merge his ideas with the Creative Producer/s (think Kathleen Kennedy or The Duffer Bros) and then they will ask Scott to direct and he will turn it down. The only other possibility is that Disney will use Scott and someone like Duffer Bros to Creative Produce together and someone else on Gareth Edwards or Rian Johnson's level will direct through that type of set-up.

    There's no excuse for teenagers romping about a Alien and Predator film in a department store.

    Anybody here could have wrote that script, I bet some people here could have come up with an acceptable story that didn't delve into teen slasher flick. It's a shame because they actually handled the Predator/Wolf really well and the Predalien had some slight potential.

    I liked their interaction with the fans on this board too, they seemed cool. They just didn't make a very good film.

    I hope Scott picks a dude as the protagonist now. Back in '79 it was daring to put a female in charge, but I'm pretty sick of it now. Shaw and Daniels were seriously annoying. Shaw preaching the whole time (I choose to believe!) and Daniels was sobbing most of the movie.

    I think I would rather see is a larger portion of the cast being female and the "final girl" not so obviously telegraphed in the marketing.

    QuoteThe results have been mixed in the past.  Anderson was probably the most experienced director when he made his instalment and it didn't exactly set the world on fire.  Then the Strauses hadn't directed anything and were even worse

    The Strauses agenda seemed to be more about maxamizing cash rather than making an entertaining film.

    Alien isn't really Star Wars though, I think a young up and coming director is probably a good choice for the franchise.

    Why shouldn't an established film series like Alien employ experienced, or at least competent directors?

    I don't think there's been much wrong with the Direction of most Alien films ( not talking about the AVP ones). It's the story's and the studio interference that are bollocks.

    I actually agree with what he said though. You should have to work your way up to these big budget movies.

    I've been thinking the same. If they should make a bunch of movies, there's bound to be a decent one among them. And something's better than nothing.
    As long as nothing's confirmed, I'm trying to stay positive. Maybe they allow Ridley to finish his story and after that they take the franchise away from him. Could explain his attitude.

    We've been here so many times it's not funny. Doom and gloom, our last movie sucked, what if there's no more movies...

    By the time Predator hits, I'm sure there will be rumblings of another Alien movie somewhere.

    I think there's also a bit of control involved in getting less experienced directors involved (as far as I remember Lucas got Marquand in to direct Jedi as he felt he'd ceded too much control to Kersh on Empire).  Often they'll be guys who are leaping at the chance to do a big franchise film, and less likely to make waves.  There was talk (amongst fans) about Fox creating a story group a la Marvel or Lucasfilm, so there's an overall story arc spread out over a number of films - but Ridley would never be able to operate under such a strict regime.

    Yeah, the control thing is not where an older experienced director wants or needs to be.

    But Ridley's need to come first.  For obvious reasons.

    Blomkamp fans can wait a few more years.

    Of course.
    I don't like unfinished stories, open endings and such.
    And I'm more interested in Prometheus type stuff than Aliens anyway.

    They could announce something like "This will be the last of the prequels but the first in a new series of Alien (themed) movies."
    Oh, that would be so awesome.

    Don't see why they can't do both (I'm not saying they will).
    It's Disney, they got the cash. Something similar to their Star Wars approach perhaps.
    Both follow-ups to the originals, let's say Blomkamp's version, and spin-off/prequel stuff like Prometheus and Covenant.

    I would like Ridley to finish up with his trilogy.

    After watching C O V E N A N T again tonight with the commentary, he said John Logan has wrote the next movie.

    He says all manner of things and then the next thing you know he says all manner of things that contradict everything he said before, Sir Riddles is either a massive troll or genuinely doesn't remember the answer to the question so just makes things up on the spot and I say this as a fan of his.

    I enjoyed his commentary, regardless.

    He's not one for sticking around though. As soon as the credits appeared he was off. :laugh:

    I reckon if we don't hear anything in the next few months then it's either delayed or cancelled.

    It's been delayed since Covenant didn't perform as well as everyone expected and Fox had Scott off looking for a new direction to go with. However, with the whole Disney thing on the horizon I think it's unlikely we'll see another Alien film until after that's all done.

    Unless Fox has commented about actively green-lighting new films? I know they said that anything already in production was safe but I'm not sure I've seen them comment on putting anything new out?

    I'd rather Blomkamp's movie get made than to see a different director other than Scott finish the David storyline.

    I doubt that's an option. It's either Scott part three or total reboot. Either seems likely, but not in the next 2 years.
