While speaking to IGN UK, Ridley Scott revealed that Neill Blomkamp's Alien 5 proposal was originally entitled Awakening! A title now being adopted for Ridley Scott's prequel to Alien: Covenant.
They wanted to do Alien, er, Awakening – Neill Blomkamp… I said fine. I was going to be the producer. If I could have, I would have. Except I do question, why have both out there? It seems like shooting your big toe off, it doesn’t make sense. But they didn’t go forward with it, Fox, so I just kind of kept out of it.
