Quote"We are [going to make another], we are," Scott told EW from the set of All the Money in the World. "I think what we have to do is gradually drift away from the alien stuff." Say what? Scott's Alien: Covenant, which came out earlier this year, felt like a return to some legit old-school scares but failed to set the domestic box office ablaze (though, combined with international sales, it ended with north of $240 million in ticket revenue). "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. I think AI is becoming much more dangerous and therefore more interesting."It's true that Covenant's best moments tended to include Michael Fassbender, who was doing double duty as good-or-bad androids David and Walter. (We could go on here about how Fassbender should probably be in the Oscar race for this "fingering" recorder scene alone but have been advised against it.)"Fassbender was an AI," continues Scott. "Ian Holm [from Alien] was an AI; Roy Batty [from Blade Runner] was an AI; so was Rachael [from Blade Runner]."Scott brings up a Facebook experiment from last summer to prove his point. "They put two AIs together and they were communing. It already invented a f—ing language! And they couldn't decipher what the language was so they had to switch them off. What was said and where's it gone? They could have already implemented something we don't know."Uh, we're scared already.http://ew.com/movies/2017/12/04/ridley-scott-alien-franchise-covenant/
