It’s been a busy week for the Prometheus sequel. After learning there will be more than one, we learned the first is titled Alien: Paradise Lost. And now that movie will tie into Ripley somehow.
Speaking to Empire, Ridley Scott describes the movie as:
â€œIn a way it is Prometheus 2. Itâ€™s exactly the same story. But it was always in the works to be called that [Alien: Paradise Lost]. Is Prometheus actually taking us off course from where Iâ€™m going, which is actually backing into the first Alien… Iâ€™ve even got connections with Ripley [in this], but Iâ€™m not telling you what.â€
Maybe they’ll show the Nostromo leaving Earth? How else could they reference Ripley in a sequel to a movie that’s set long before the events in the first Alien?
