He played a Alieniverse style character in Doctor Who too.

The thing about Morse is things tend to get a bit sweary around him.

I bet they are leading up to Alien Resurrection 2 with old Ripley 8 meeting Dr Shaw (after popping in and out of hypersleep for a number of movies) and David making the Autons (like Cal).

Doctor Liz Shaw and Autons (all that's missing is Jon Pertwee).


Some new NEWS on Prometheus 2

Director Ridley Scott has recently revealed the title of Prometheus 2 to be Alien: Paradise Lost, and he now asserts that the film will also feature a connection to the Alien franchise’s central character.

Speaking in an interview to promote The Martian, Scott surprised fans this week by announcing that Prometheus 2 will officially be titled Alien: Paradise Lost. The director also noted that his plans call for several sequels, which will eventually tie the stories of Alien and Prometheus directly together. During the interview with HeyUGuys, Scott said that the Prometheus story would be “heading back to why and how and when the beast was invented,” eventually connecting with the original Alien.

In an interview with Empire conducted a day later, Scott further elaborated on the connections between the two franchises, revealing to fans that they may not have to wait until Prometheus 3 or 4 to see a direct relationship between the two worlds.

“In a way it is Prometheus 2. It’s exactly the same story. But it was always in the works to be called that [Alien: Paradise Lost]. Is Prometheus actually taking us off course from where I’m going, which is actually backing into the first Alien… I’ve even got connections with Ripley [in this], but I’m not telling you what.”

As Entertainment Weekly notes, that statement somewhat contradicts what Scott previously said about Prometheus 2, as he suggested larger connections to Alien wouldn’t appear until later films in the series. For that reason, as well as the time frame in the series in which Paradise Lost is set to take place, fans have speculated that connections to Ripley will be somewhat minimal at best, likely setting up her appearance in the other arm of the newly resurgent Alien universe.

Scott is still working as a producer on Neill Blomkamp’s as-yet-untitled Alien 5. According to Screenrant, Alien 5 features an exceedingly revealing title, which Scott helped to fashion. The title is being kept a secret currently, but it is believed that Alien 5 will feature the return of Sigourney Weaver’s Ellen Ripley. Michael Biehn’s Cpl. Dwayne Hicks (from Aliens) may also reappear in Alien 5, to much excitement from fans.

Alien: Paradise Lost is set to go into production early next year, to be followed by Alien 5 at an undisclosed point in the near future.

And the Alien franchise becomes less and less interesting to me all the time ...


20th Century Fox Officially Announce Alien: Covenant and its Official Plot & Release Date!

BREAKING NEWS! 20th Century Fox have just officially announced the title for the Prometheus sequel, Alien: Covenant! Not only that, they have also revealed the film’s official plot synopsis, which in itself reveals some chilling spoilers about David and the new crew as mentioned previously by director Ridley Scott.

The official plot synopsis for Alien: Covenant, via the official Facebook page is as follows:

“Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS – and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world – whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition”

After reading that, one question comes to mind - what happened to Shaw? We now know the next crew is part of the deep space vessel Covenant, much like the Prometheus. We’ve already leaked some potential plot spoilers over the past 2 weeks and we’ll be releasing more this week. This new plot synopsis adds even more credability to what we’ve heard and we’re excited to share that with you soon.

UPDATE: Fox have revealed on Twitter that the release date for Alien: Covenant is October 6th, 2017!

During the ad campaign for Prometheus, I knew someone who thought it reminded him of Alien. My friend and I told him that it was indeed part of the same franchise and his excitement quotient jumped considerably.

Another one of my friends didn’t realize it until he was in the theater watching it with his girlfriend and the Weyland corporation was brought up.

Fox probably thinks they’d be throwing away money by not explicitly connecting the title this time around.

Based on the evidence, they’re probably right.
