Prometheus 2 Delaying Alien 5


Prometheus 2 Delaying Alien 5???

Could this RUMORS be true? Word is that Prometheus 2 Delaying Alien 5 since Ridley Scott is planning to shoot Prometheus 2 in January 2016. heard that the news of  Ridley Scott is planning to shoot Prometheus 2 in January 2016 has had no direct effect on Neill Blomkamp‘s Alien film.

But Bloody Disgusting is reporting otherwise, claiming that Scott is insisting that 20th Century Fox hold off on Alien 5 until after Prometheus 2 goes into production.

Here’s the full quote:

“Alien 5 is still very much in the works, as Fox remains hot on the idea. Blomkamp continues to work on the script (only an outline existed previously) and refine the tale he is telling….

…Ridley Scott is still producing, but has insisted on Prometheus 2 being made first.”


Considering Scott is working on both projects, Prometheus 2 may possible NEED a follow-up to the 2012 release while this would give Blomkamp ample time to flush out all the possibilities to make Alien 5 great. The only problem is that Prometheus 2 would hit screens in 2017 and Alien 5 would be pushed back to 2018.

The bonus to the puzzle is that this helps to accommodate Sigourney Weaver‘s schedule, which may be tight due to the Avatar films.

If this report is accurate and all goes to plan, Alien 5 will shoot in 2017 and that means we could get Prometheus 2 in 2017 and then Alien 5 right after in 2018.

Plus, Michael Biehn‘s recent comments that the new film will ignore the events of Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection can be rectified and resoluted because “it’s basically far too early to tell on that front right front right now.”
