Ridley Scott Confirms the Next Alien Film Will Not Feature Aliens



Last month director Ridley Scott told the world that the next film in the Alien saga was going to get rid of the xenomorphs (and aliens altogether) in favor of spending more quality time with the universe’s A.I. – which I took to (hopefully) mean more Michael Fasbender.

Well, it looks like Scott is sticking to his guns with this one and let EW know in a recent interview that both he and the Alien franchise are done with aliens.

“I think what we have to do is gradually drift away from the alien stuff,” Scott says. “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.”

While I’m totally down for more Michael Fassbender in future Alien films, how about Scott and his team just use the xenomorph a bit more like the original film did: In the shadows and f*cking scary. Not in full-blown CGI battles. After all, Scott should know what I mean. He directed the original classic.

What do you think of future Alien movies without the aliens? Let us know below!


Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, members (Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup) of the colony ship Covenant discover what they think to be an uncharted paradise. While there, they meet David (Michael Fassbender), the synthetic survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition. The mysterious world soon turns dark and dangerous when a hostile alien life-form forces the crew into a deadly fight for survival.
