Ridley Scott may have changed the name of his Prometheus sequel yet again
Ridley Scott certainly enjoys talking about his upcoming sequel to PROMETHEUS, and the director's latest soundbite on the subject includes yet another title change for the film. Per The Playlist, Scott sat down at the AFI Film Festival to discuss his career and naturally, the discussion soon turned to his involvement in the ALIEN franchise. The PROMETHEUS sequel has most recently been going by ALIEN: PARADISE LOST, but during his AFI talk the director casually tossed out another title.
Ridley Scott mentioned that he is "going to be doing what will be called ‘Alien: Covenant,’ which starts shooting next February." Now it's possible that Scott misspoke and that ALIEN: COVENANT could be the title of one of the future PROMETHEUS sequels, but I suppose we have yet another title to refer to the film by...until Scott changes it again. I doubt that this is the last we hear on the subject of titles, as Ridley Scott is looking to take complete control of all things PROMETHEUS: "I let the other one [Alien] get away from me – I shouldn’t have… I’m trying to re-resurrect the beast and let if off the hook for a while because I’m coming back into the back-end of Alien 1. I’m gradually getting to Alien 1."
ALIEN: COVENANT, or whatever it will eventually be called, starts shooting next February for a May 30, 2017 release.
ALIEN: PARADISE LOST or ALIEN: COVENANT? What's your vote?
