Ridley Scott's Prometheus sequel gets ANOTHER name change!

The sequel to 2012's Prometheus which was formally known as Alien: Paradise Lost has received yet another name change.

During a talk with AFI on his career in film on November 15th, Ridley Scott let slip the name change and revealed that the film will now go by the name Alien: Covenant. This was 100% confirmed today with the upload of a brand new official logo and the first details of the plot.

As far as the plot goes; the following statement was given:

"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.”

Scott also mentioned that he was annoyed at himself for letting the newest Alien film get away from him and claims he "is trying to re-resurrect the beast and let it off the hook for a while" because he is coming into the back-end of Alien.

With a scheduled release date of October 6th 2017 in the US with a UK release date yet to be revealed. Shooting begins on the film in February 2016 and it has since been revealed that work on this title has put Neil Blomkamp's Alien (5) project on hold indefinitely.
