With confirmation that the last two “Alien” movies have been wiped out of continuity, many are wondering where Alien: Paradise Lost will take us. Well, in an interview, Ridley Scott talked about how things will be different from before, thus we may have gotten our answer:
“It’s going to be its own separate thing because they are going to the planet of the Engineers and they are going to see what happened there. It was a disaster,” Scott reveals. “And they will be in that alien craft that takes them there, but with a new group that’s incoming, a new group of travelers in the beginning of the first act.”
Who are they new travelers? Different alien beings? More humans from Earth who Weyland sent as backup? I guess we’ll find out more soon enough.
And for those of you who are worried that this “trilogy” won’t make it to the eventual Alien bridge, Scott can put you at ease.
“There is an evolution to this one so if we can get something down I don’t not see how we go [forward without a third].”
