News From LV-426: Ridley Scott Still Wants An Alien:Covenant Sequel

Even with much fan divisiveness over the last two chapters in the Alien saga, Ridley Scott is still hopeful he'd eventually get to make the third chapter in what was meant to be a trilogy of films. After Prometheus seemed to split the fandom down the middle, Scott released Covenant which had an even more dire effect on the series for the most part. 

Folks that had followed the Alien saga since its beginnings weren't really sure that every mystery needed a resolution or background story. The 2017 sequel was a box office failure for the director and studio and the future has been in doubt ever since. With the brand switching ownership, there has been no positive momentum in three years. Now, when speaking with the L.A. Times, Scott says that he's still thinking about the series and it's very much on his mind:

"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 the first one was 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.”

What do we think? Could he still save the series with a third and final entry?
