Guess Alien 5 will not be taking over our cinemas because according to Ridley, the project is DEAD.
“Fox decided that they didn’t want to do it, and that was it,” says the ‘Alien: Covenant’ director.“There was never a script,” he said. “It was an idea that evolved from, I believe, a 10-page pitch, and I was meant to be part of the producers on that. It didn’t evolve. Fox decided that they didn’t want to do it and that was it. I’d already done Prometheus and I was planning Covenant, so I dunno.”
The producer and filmmaker is now doubtful that the film will come to fruition. The interest in making another Aliens movie happened when director Neil Blomkamp posted concept art on social media.
