Ridley Scott re-titles Prometheus sequel for a second time

Ridley Scott has revealed that his his planned sequel to Prometheus has been given a new title. 

Scott had revealed earlier this summer that his sequel would be titled Alien: Paradise Lost, but now, speaking over the weekend about his career at the AFI Film Festival, he let slip that there is another title and it is Alien: Covenant.

He said: "I've got no plan. I go from pillar to post randomly. I have this childlike fascination and thrill of doing it. I was going to be doing what will be called Alien: Covenant, which starts shooting next February, and we were struggling then with the screenplay there and then there was a phone call, somebody saying, ‘Listen, we’ve got this thing which is completely written called Martian."

Prometheus was released in 2012 and served as a origin story to Alien, it also starred Charlize Theron, Idris Elba and Guy Pearce. You can check it out here in our online store. 

A further sequel to Alien, this time directed by District 9's Neill Blomkamp, was in pre-production early this year and was set to shoot in 2017, but has now been put on hold due to Scott's new plans.
