According to Ridley Scott, the Alien should be compared to Star Wars or Star Trek
During a recent interview with the Toronto Sun for the promotion of All the Money in the World, his new film just released in cinemas, and Ridley Scott is back to talk of the franchise of Alien specifying that, according to him, should be compared by fans to the sagas of Star Wars and Star Trek.
Here are his words:
“There is a reason why the Alien should not be at the same level of sagas such as Star Trek or Star Wars for the fans. What we must decide now is whether we will continue to develop the story of the beast or if you come up with something new. I think that the beast deserves to evolve because it is the beast the best that has ever been created”.
Scott refers to the fact that, in more than one occasion, has expressed its desire to set aside the story of the Xenomorph in favour of a “new and more urgent” threat, that posed by Artificial Intelligences.
However, since it was Alien: Covenant, his last film in the franchise, half flop at the box office, 20th Century Fox has not yet released official information about the future of the saga which, remember, is now in the hands of Disney.
