However you feel about Neill Blomkamp’s in the works sequel to the first two “Alien” films, the project is going ahead. Whilst we await and see how “Alien 3” and “Alien: Resurrection” will be (or if) they’ll be acknowledged in the film, it turns out the movie has undergone one change for continuity sake.
In an upcoming interview with Empire (via Den of Geek], Blomkamp reveals that “I changed the one thing [Ridley Scott] felt was bumping Prometheus a little bit” and adds that Scott insisted on the change to minimize conflict with the “Prometheus” sequel which is still in the works.
Scott is also serving as an executive producer on Blomkamp’s film. There’s also apparently a “bold” title already set for the movie, but the filmmaker can’t say just yet as it “gives away too much”.
