According to THR, Ridley Scott has revealed that he has two further Alien films planned before his prequel series finally links to his 1979 classic.

“When [Covenant] finishes there’ll be another one and then another one,” he says, speaking at a Sydney press conference as he begins pre-production. “They’ll gradually drive into the back entrance of the 1979 film. Questions will be answered like why was this space jockey there and why did he have an Alien inside him? ,”

Fassbender is set to return in some form as the android David, but Scott says Noomi Rapace will only make a brief appearance in Covenant. He says the rest of the cast will likely be largely Australian, given the Sydney shoot. The movie’s locations will include “monumental forest and monumental rock.”

Prometheus was borne out of my frustration that in the three Aliens that followed [mine], no-one asked the question ‘Who made the Alien and why?'”, he explains, reiterating something he’s been saying for ages. “Very basic questions. I came up with the notion of Prometheus, which starts to indicate who might have made it and where it came from. So I’m now going to the next one, which is the next evolution directly connected with the first one. We’ll kind of pick it up there, with Michael Fassbender in pieces, and it will evolve…”

Alien: Covenant will start full production in March.
