It seems only like last week that Ridley Scott’s Prometheus sequel was given a new title (it was actually September), but the follow-up has apparently seen its title changed once again.
At the last word, the former Prometheus 2 was retitled Alien: Paradise Lost. Now, according to Cinema Blend, it looks as if this sequel is now being referred to as Alien: Covenant.
Scott was speaking at the AFI Film Festival about how he ended up directing The Martian when he revealed, “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,’ and I said,’ Huh.’ And I sped read it in an hour, and by mid-afternoon I talked to Fox and said, ‘I need to talk to Drew …’”
Whether Alien: Covenant is now the title going forward remains to be seen.
At present, this first Prometheus sequel (yes, Scott apparently has plans for three sequels in total) is set to begin production in February ahead of a 2017 release.SHARE YOUR COMMENTS BELOW OR ON TWITTER @STARBURST_MAG
