Alien Prequel Trilogy Cancelled
Fucking Hollywood. Prometheus was meh but Alien: Covenant got me onboard Ridley’s prequel passion project, but now it looks like the third and final film - which would have linked up David’s story to the first Alien from 1979 - has been scrapped.
Instead we’re getting a new reboot of the franchise (yawn) in the form of a film produced by Ridley but directed by some random, and a TV series produced by Fargo’s Noah Hawley. The latter could be decent given the awesomeness of Fargo, but none of this detracts from the frustration of Hollywood aborting a trilogy that was nicely taking shape.
