In 1979, Ridley Scott directed the first Alien film and gave science-fiction horror fans a number of unforgettable monsters - from stubborn facehuggers to steely-eyed androids

In a recent interview with Forbes, Ridley Scott admitted, a new Alien film is in development; but the director is not going to pick it up where he left off, disregarding the idea of revisiting the worlds of Prometheus and Alien: Covenant.

“That’s in process. We went down a route to try and reinvent the wheel with Prometheus and Covenant,” he admitted.

“Whether or not we go directly back to that is doubtful because ‘Prometheus’ woke it up very well. But you know, you’re asking fundamental questions like, ‘Has the Alien himself, the facehugger, the chestburster, have they all run out of steam? Do you have to rethink the whole bloody thing and simply use the word to franchise?’ That’s always the fundamental question.”

In 1979, Ridley Scott directed the first Alien film which became an instant classic and gave science-fiction horror fans a number of unforgettable monsters, from stubborn facehuggers to steely-eyed androids.

Space-horror Prometheus marked Scott’s return to the Alien universe after more than 30 years, and was a prequel to the first Alien film.

Earlier this summer, Scott said to the Los Angeles Times. “I still think there’s a lot of mileage in ‘Alien,’ but I think you’ll have to now re-evolve. What I always thought when I was making it, the first one, why would a creature like this be made and why was it traveling in what I always thought was a kind of war-craft, which was carrying a cargo of these eggs."

“What was the purpose of the vehicle and what was the purpose of the eggs? That’s the thing to question — who, why, and for what purpose is the next idea, I think,” he added.

Production of Scott’s latest film The Last Duel, on the other hand, starring Matt Damon and Adam Driver, was halted due to the pandemic.

The historical epic will revolve around best friends Jean de Carrouges (Matt Damon) and Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver) who are ordered to battle to death after Carrouges is accused of raping Le Gris’ wife.
