Ridley Scott’s goes for six times
Ridley Scott creator of MANY MOVIES, recently Prometheus the prequel to Alien. Scott was interviewed by The Sydney Morning Herald and Scott confessed that he is SO intrigued by the “fantasy” of his sci-fi series that he is willing to keep them going. Planning to create SIX more installments to the series which brings the total Alien movies to twelve NOT including Aliens Versus Predator.
This is a quote from Scott,”If you really want a franchise, I can keep cranking it for another six,” Scott declares. “I’m not going to close it down again. No way…. You’ve got to assume to a certain extent success and from that you’d better be ready. You don’t want a two-year gap. So I’ll be ready to go again next year.”
So we can make the assumption that he’s back at writing again even before the release of his upcoming movie, Alien: Covenant. He’s ready to start production soon would be my guess as it’s early in the year so there’s a lot of time between now and 2018 which is the release year for The Predator.
Anyone who may have missed the Aliens: Covenant trailer here it is!
