The return of the 81-year-old director to the franchise follows two earlier prequels, Prometheus [2012] and Alien: Covenant [2017], which he both directed and produced.

The experienced filmmaker said how he & # 39; within 32 hours & # 39; in Hollywood was & # 39; from receiving the script for the latest prequel, with the aim of calling Alien: Awakening, according to Screen Rant.

& # 39; They sent me a script and I read it. I thought it was great, & he said.

The rumbling of a continuation of the Alien franchise began for the first time in the same year that the most recent prequel was released.

In 2017, Scott said: & # 39; We are [we are going to make another], we are. & # 39;

Talking to Entertainment Weekly, he continued: & I think we should gradually drift off the alien things … People say & # 39; you need more extraterrestrial life, you need more face, you need more chest need & # 39; so I put a lot of it in Covenant and it fitted nicely.

& # 39; But I think if you go again, you need to find another solution that is more interesting. I think AI is becoming much more dangerous and therefore more interesting. & # 39;

A year later, in December 2018, further reports were grounded before the 40th anniversary of 2019.

Alien's official social media teased that & # 39; The Alien Universe Expansion 2019 & # 39; is.

The first film earned $ 104 million worldwide at the box office and was the sixth most successful film of the year – but Scott then left the franchise not to come back to 2012 again.

The sequel from 1986, Aliens, was arrested instead by James Cameron, with the third, Aliens 3, released in 1992, directed by David Fincher.

Jean-Pierre Jeunet took over the 1997 Alien Resurrection, which is the most recent direct sequel to the original to date.

There were also two spin-off cross-over Alien films – Alien vs Predator [2004] and Alien vs Predator: Requiem [2007].

Sigourney Weaver played heroine Ellen Ripley in the original film and his three consecutive sequels and was also co-producer for Alien 3.

All potential involvement that Weaver, 69, has with the latest episode is not yet known – although fans have speculated that the new film will serve as a direct lead over Alien – in which her character was first introduced.

However, this comes with his problems, since Weaver is now 40 years older than she in Alien, and so Ripley would not understand an old sentence.

Last November, Weaver hinted that she would be ready for future involvement in the franchise, but she seemed more interested in repeating her role in another sequel rather than prequel.

Neill Blomkamp had planned an Alien 5, which was demolished in favor of Scott's prequels.

But in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Weaver said that both she and Aliens' director, Cameron, were looking for a Blomkamp's pitch to come to fruition.

& # 39; We almost started doing it when I was working with James Cameron. But by the time we put Fox off, Neill had been given so many jobs that we probably had to wait, & Weaver explained.

& # 39; I'm busy with Avatar 4 and 5. I love working with Neill and I think he does a fantastic job, and James Cameron really thinks it's a great idea, so you never know. & # 39;
