🎬🎥 NEW poster for Alien Covenant. In 2012, prior to the release of Prometheus, director Ridley Scott began hinting at the prospects of a sequel. Scott said that a sequel would follow Shaw to her next destination, "because if it is paradise, paradise cannot be what you think it is. Paradise has a connotation of being extremely sinister and ominous." Lindelof cast doubt on his participation, and said, "if Scott wants me to be involved in something, that would be hard to say no to. At the same time, I do feel like [Prometheus] might benefit from a fresh voice or a fresh take or a fresh thought." Scott said that an additional film would be required to bridge the gap between the Prometheus sequel and Alien. As of August 1, 2012, Fox was pursuing a sequel with Scott, Noomi Rapace, and Michael Fassbender involved, and was talking to new writers in case Lindelof did not return. In December 2012, Lindelof ultimately chose not to work on the project. Early on Scott stated that the film would feature no xenomorphs, "The beast is done. Cooked." However Scott would make later statements that were contradictory, stating what is planned and confirming the xenomorphs' presence in the film and ultimately the movie does include the creatures. Meanwhile director Neill Blomkamp had been planning on filming his own movie in the Alien franchise, although he put the project on hold at the request of Scott is set to be a producer on that as-of-yet untitled film. On September 24, Scott confirmed the film's title as Alien: Paradise Lost. In November 2015, Scott revealed the new title to be Alien: Covenant, with filming set to begin in February 2016 in Australia. An official logo, synopsis and release date were released on November 16, 2015.
