Alien Covenant 2

Date Released: Unknown
Directed By:
Ridley Scott
Certificate: Unknown

Alien Covenant 2, or Alien Awakening, is the possible sequel to Alien Covenant and Prometheus. The script has already been written by John Logan and will presumably be directed by Ridley Scott.

Alien Covenant 2 Current Status

Ridley Scott said throughout production of Alien Covenant, that he had two more sequels planned, possibly a third as well. There is some confusion as to whether ‘Alien Awakening’ is the title of it. Scott has used the title in previous interviews but in others he also used it referring to Neill Blomkamp’s cancelled project. Scott said that the script for the next movie had already been written and in May 2017, he said they would begin shooting within 14 months and the movie would be out within a year and 9 months. After Alien Covenant was released, box office takings weren’t as high as expected and there were rumours that 20th Century Fox was ‘reassessing‘ the future of the Alien franchise. As of right now, any future movies in the Prometheus series are in limbo.

 Alien Covenant 2 Rumours

The Director of Alien Covenant 2

It seems more or less certain that Ridley Scott would return to direct again.

Alien Covenant 2 Cast

There have been no official announcements of returning cast members. It’s to be expected that Michael Fassbender would return to play David again given the way Alien Covenant ended. I would assume Katherine Waterston has to return too but again, there have been no announcements.

Alien Covenant 2 Storyline

The script has already been written by John Logan who did extensive rewrites to Alien Covenant’s script. Alien Covenant ended as David tricked Daniels into believing he was the other android Walter. As she entered hypersleep, David regurgitated two Facehugger embryos and stored them with the human embryos. In a separate feature on the Alien Covenant Blu-Ray set, it is revealed that David wanted to make a Queen Alien and was possibly going to use Daniels as the host. The second sequel that Ridley Scott had planned was going to loop back around to the original Alien, possibly with the crashed Derelict Spacecraft n LV-426. There were also some rumours that Daniels was going to be Ripley’s mother.

 Alien Covenant 2 Rumours

Ridley Scott spoke a little about the story for Alien Covenant 2 in June 2017 and said the Engineers would make an appearance.

“They’ll be three or four different players coming in to investigate. One of which will be the Engineers arriving back to find their planet decimated. I think those ships come and go on regular intervals. I see them as the gardeners of space. Where we go next is obvious. We’re gonna actually go to the planet. In so doing…I’m not going to tell you the story!

  1. not sure what to make about a covenant sequel as i think ridley ruined the alien story line saying david created the xeno to be fair i was hoping we would see the engineers creating the xeno or experimenting on something like a neomorph or similar with very strange and weird ways to bring around the very first xenomorph hopefully this can still be the case just having david trying to recreate the engineer experiment but slightly different as the protomorph if that really is what the beast was called wasnt as intelligent as what we have seen from the xenomorphs in past fims especially where it attacked the crane daniels was using.hope something different happens like that because all ridley did was create a monster when he really could have had something amazing but he has failed to capture the spirit of the first film that started the franchise hopefully fox can do something drastic to bring back alien as it should be

  2. I would like to have some Alien like these for real on our planet. Just for fun and to teach him to go after Trump Putin and Kim Jong Un to stop this madness about war and nuclear weapons.
    Please Alien and come to earth to kill them All.😄
