He does indeed, I wish he acquired a script worthy of it.
One last time.
I was listening to the Covenant commentary yesterday. From what I can gather from this (and the special features of the Prometheus set that has everything on it) I think he's really "hands on" when it comes to the script writer. He said that he always "develops" his projects these days (save the Martian in recent times which just loved the script for).
In other words, lot of "blame" can be laid at Scott's feet. I think the writer is really interpreting what Scott ultimately wants (I could be wrong in that, but that's the impression I get).
He kicks off the commentary by saying that he just didn't understand why the "other three films" didn't ask the question who created the Alien and why (I sense he hates all these movies, he never acknowledges them).
I think the Alien being created by David is a shit idea and it offends my preconceptions, but more power to you if you think this is great - I get it. I hate that direction, but ... yeah - that's a creative choice. It's not great and I think it's subverting the 'verse (perhaps the intention?) cos we all "know" the Xeno is ancient and malignant and that the derelict has been fossilised for zillions of years. (not anymore!)
All that said, I'd watch Prometheus/Cov/Alien over the second choice because even if the David thing offends me, Resurrection rams a twelve gauge into the anus of my sensibilities and pulls the trigger.
