With the next film in the Prometheus/Alien franchise being Paradise Lost, a lot of fans have wondered how it will all connect. Well, Ridley Scott has as to where this will all fall, and how it’ll connect to a key character:

“In a way it is Prometheus 2, it’s exactly the same story. But it was always in the works to be called that [Alien: Paradise Lost]. Is Prometheus actually taking us off course from where I’m going, which is actually backing into the first Alien… I’ve even got connections with Ripley, but I’m not telling you what.”

Also, this is something he’s been thinking about for a while:

“Years ago, I kept mulling over what Alien 2 could be. I was fiddling around with some ideas. I was always fascinated with why this thing [the xenomorph] would be made, by whom, and for what purpose? The planet it was on – and I was looking at the dark side of the moon – would be called Paradise. Paradise is a very ominous word…”
