Is Prometheus 2 Delaying Alien 5?

Ridley Scott’s Prometheus 2, which is scheduled to go into production in January 2016, could be delaying production on Neil Blomkamp’s Alien 5, according to sources talking to Bloody Disgusting. And it’s a situation that sounds plausible as Ridley Scott is producer on Alien 5 as well as director on Prometheus 2.


According to the article, sources claim, “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.”

You’d assume 20th Century Fox would also be happier with a staggered release for two films in, essentially, the same franchise. In addition it gives Sigourney Weaver, who is a key part of Neil Blomkamp’s plans for Alien 5, time to appear in Avatar 2 first. Well, if Cameron ever actually starts shooting the thing. Currently it’s supposed to be released in 2017 but we wouldn’t lay any bets on it.
