Ridley Scott has been on a “fuck the world” press tour as of late. His PR tour built around The Last Duel has been hilarious and filled with a Ridley Scott who doesn’t care what anyone thinks. To be fair, his film The Last Duel has been one of the best films of the year and nobody went to see it. However, everyone and their nana went to see the latest Marvel film. It appears that Scott is going to work on his own series based on some of his most famous pictures.
In a recent BBC Radio Interview, Scott briefly discussed the Alien series already in development over at FX and went on to discuss a future Blade Runner series. There is nothing that is known about either, project plot wise. However, we are excited about whatever direction either project goes. It would be awesome to spend 10-hours in an Alien’s series especially one that is worked on by Scott and team.
Alien FX series runner, Noah Hawley has discussed that the series will not be a Ripley origin story. He did hint that the series will take place on Earth and that it will be set in an open area. He wants to get away from the confines of a spaceship or mining facility and open it up a bit more.
