Prometheus Sequel to Reveal Alien Origin

Director Ridley Scott recently spoke with IGN about his Prometheus sequel/Alien prequel, Alien: Paradise Lost, and about his regret about letting go of control of the Alien sequels:

“I’m trying to keep this for myself. I let the other one [Alien] get away from me – I shouldn’t have… I’m trying to re-resurrect the beast and let if off the hook for a while because I’m coming back into the back-end of Alien 1. I’m gradually getting to Alien 1.”

He also confirmed that the new series will eventually reveal the origin of the aliens:

“Prometheus 2 will start getting shot in February and I’ve already begun now so I know what the script is. Then there will be another one after that and then maybe we’ll back into Alien 1, as to why? Who would make such a dreadful thing?”

It’s encouraging that Scott is that invested in the franchise again, and even though Prometheus wasn’t a bad film, it wasn’t quite the Alien prequel we were hoping for. But that sounds like it’s gong to be rectified.
