Ridley Scott Thinks The Alien Franchise Has Almost Run Out

Only almost? There's already been eight films.

Before Alien: CovenantRidley Scott had long-term plans for the franchise. After that film's disappointing box office take, the future is now uncertain. He explained that he was working on quite a few different projects around the time of Covenant and time was running out.

"It was a crossfire of too much business", he said. "I'm doing a lot of TV and films, there are six films going out this year. I figured it was a good piece of business to follow through Prometheus, which, from ground zero, had good lift-off. So we went to Covenant to perpetuate the idea and [revive] the franchise of the Alien. [However] I think the beast has almost run out, personally."

Alien: Covenant only made $240 million worldwide, compared to Prometheus' $403 million take.
