Sir Ridley Scott, who rose to fame with the ‘Alien’ franchise, has come up with a new idea for the saga to continue.
The 80-year-old filmmaker revisited the cinematic universe in 2012 with prequel ‘Prometheus’, which explored the origins of the human race and the deadly Xenomorph creature, and released follow-up film ‘Alien: Covenant’ in May this year.
Scott said, “We are going to make another], we are. I think what we have to do is gradually drift away from the alien stuff. People say, ‘you need more alien, you need more face pulling, need more chest bursting’, so I put a lot of that in ‘Covenant’ and it fitted nicely. But I think if you go again you need to start finding another solution that’s more interesting. I think AI is becoming much more dangerous and therefore more interesting.”
“They put two AIs together and they were communing. It already invented a f-ing language! And they couldn’t decipher what the language was so they had to switch them off. What was said and where’s it gone? They could have already implemented something we don’t know,” explained the director.
