The Alien Queen is not dead yet

Director Ridley Scott has said the Alien franchise is set to "re-evolve".  Xenomorph expert lan Nathan considers four directions it could take

Alien franchise


ALIEN: BACK INTO THE RIDLEYVERSE

Development on the next prequel has been halted, but not abandoned.  "I'm in tune with where 'Covenant 2' would go," Ridley Scott maintained in 2017. 'Alien: Awakening' was to refocus on the Engineers still at large, inventing planets like giant, bald Ridley Scotts. Engineers Vs. Fassbender  Would ensue; Scott's new direction will likely bring the company, aka Weyland - Yutani, center stage. Less as Peter Weyland's megalomaniac plaything than a corporation of Burkes running a biological - warfare division.


ALIEN: RESET


Disney, which is now in possession of the franchise, might equally see this as a chance to go back to basics, back to the B - movie DNA that retained Alien and Aliens.  Which was the intention of Neill Blomkamp - to literally hit the reset button in the wake of Aliens, with Ripley, Newt and Hicks intact.  James Cameron, while promoting Alita: Battle Angel, hinted at discussions with Disney about reviving Blomkamp's reboot;  producer Walter Hill has even sent Sigourney Weaver a 50 - page treatment, with the tagline: "In space, no one can hear you dream." However, speaking to Empire last month, Weaver seemed sceptical about returning to Ripley.

ALIEN: RESUSCITATED


There is a pantheon of unmade Alien scripts Disney inherited with Fox.  One of these might, with a little nursing, offer up a vivid approach.  Is there mileage, yet, in Vincent Ward's monkish wooden planet (flipped into a prison world in Alien), or Joss Whedon's Earth - centric 'Alien: Revelation', or British screenwriter Stuart Hazeldine's 'Alien: Earthbound', featuring the xenomorph - infested Antarctica Station (a reference to Alien) tethered to Earth?  A recent novel, Aliens: Phalanx by Scott Sigler, pitches xenomorphs against medieval knights;  that just happens to be two of Scott's favorite jingles combined.  

ALIEN: THE SERIES


The good money remains on the alien heading to television.  With R - rated body horror not conducive to Disney + family values, it would be more likely to appear on Hulu (in which Disney has a 60 per cent stake).  One report claims Scott has been part of discussions over an anthology format, unveiling a different aspect of the Alien universe each season, including a return to LV - 426, with new Colonists and new marines, the Aliens having survived being nuked from space.
