RIDLEY SCOTT PLANS TO PUSH THE ENVELOPE WITH ‘ALIEN: COVENANT’

Published

Director Ridley Scott is coming off of a great year with several nominations for his most recent film ‘The Martian,’ including best picture, best actor (Matt Damon) and best adapted screenplay. Scott has now been called upon to return to the franchise that put his name on the map in Hollywood…  “Aliens”

Since Neil Blomkamp’s proposed ‘Aliens 5’ has been scrapped, Scott has begun work on the next installment.  Scott stated he wants to use a blend of sci-fi and horror this time around to be more extreme, saying:

 “That’s why I’m doing it. I’m going to do pretty Hard R.”

During a backstage interview after the Golden Globes Scott spoke on his upcoming project, which will begin filming soon in Australia.  Scott was asked how he would would blend the horror to ‘Alien: Covenant:

“I always remember walking down the edge in Saint Louis when we were previewing [Alien]. I couldn’t sit through the film one more time. I walked down the edge into the kitchen scene when John Hurt started to bring up his breakfast. That moment, I realized how pretty scary the film was… I felt a sense of responsibility that I had gone too far because it was extreme. I’m going to try and do that again this year, but much worse.”

It would appear that Ridley Scott is planning to push the boundaries of the franchise that made him famous.  Only time will tell if this new “horror” filled Aliens will pull movie goers minds away from 2012’s ‘Prometheus,’ which left a bad taste in the mouths of a lot of fans of the Aliens franchise.
