With Ridley Scott committed to the "Prometheus" sequel "Alien: Paradise Lost" and with plans for potentially two more films that would link back up with the "Alien" franchise, it raises an obvious question.
That being how in the hell does Neil Blomkamp's direct "Aliens" sequel fit into all this and how will Scott's plans affect it? We know Scott is producing the Blomkamp film which will come sometime after 'Paradise Lost', and speaking with Empire this week he suggests the film will take the almost three decades since "Aliens" release into consideration:
"I'm producing [Blomkamp's movie]. It's designed to go next after ['Alien: Paradise Lost']. ["His version] is more associated with Ripley. It's coming from a completely different angle. It's kind of more of a sequel… after, after after. I'm coming at it from the back end."
Scott says he's keen to make two films a year going forward, likely one major and one quick smaller film »

This scene will likely not happen in the new show.
Doctor Who is going back to school. BBC announced today a new spin-off for the popular series, aimed at young adults, and written by noted Ya author Patrick Ness. Titled Class, the show will take place at Coal Hill School, historic location of the series, and feature the students facing threats from across space and time.
Set in contemporary London. Incredible dangers are breaking through the walls of time and space, and with darkness coming, London is unprotected. With all the action, heart and adrenalin of the best Ya fiction (Buffy, Hunger Games), this is Coal Hill School and Doctor Who like you’ve never seen it before.
Steven Moffat, who will executive-produce the show, says: “No one has documented the dark and exhilarating world of the teenager like Patrick Ness, and now we’re bringing his brilliant storytelling into Doctor Who. »

With the recent title change of the Prometheus sequel to Alien: Paradise Lost, fans have been wondering what that means for Neill Blomkamp’s plans for Alien 5, a movie which will apparently pick up after Aliens (thereby forgetting the divisive third and fourth instalments of the franchise).
“I’m producing [Blomkamp’s movie]. It’s designed to go next after ‘Alien: Paradise Lost’. His version is more associated with Ripley. It’s coming from a completely different angle. It’s kind of more of a sequel… after, after after. I’m coming at it from the back end.”
So, they’re clearly going to be two very different movies, but it should be interesting to see how the »

If you have not seen "The Cabin in the Woods" and don't want to know what happens, do not read this article. I repeat: Do Not Read This Article. Don't. Do it. Now, on to the major, major spoilers... In a recent interview with Den of Geek, "The Cabin in the Woods" writer/director Drew Goddard spilled that Lionsgate is actually clamoring for a sequel to the film, which grossed $66 million worldwide and was presumably profitable. "...the studio wants to do it," said Goddard. "They've come to us. ...The funny part is, I don't think we planned that movie to do a sequel you know?" He's not kidding. As anyone who has seen the uber-meta horror flick knows: the world ends at the end of the movie. As in, finito. Finished. No more world. Bye, bye, world. Goddard is unperturbed. "...the fun thing about Cabin is, the rules are pretty crazy, »

Next year's Paul Feig-directed "Ghostbusters" is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the franchise reboot. You may have forgotten that earlier this year it was revealed that Ivan Reitman and Dan Aykroyd set up the production shingle Ghost Corps on the Sony lot to develop and oversee everything going on with the property they started. At the time, there was rumors of a big Marvel-style shared universe of movies being worked on, but that has since quieted down to some degree, but the idea are still percolating, and a new one is on the table. Read More: Sigourney Weaver Also Lines Up Role In Pail Feig's 'Ghostbusters' THR reports that an animated feature is in the works, and that's kind of a no-brainer. The franchise has already seen two animated TV shows, "The Real Ghosbusters" and "Extreme Ghostbusters." The former was a more popular success, »

Sony and producer Ivan Reitman appear to be going further with their plans for more Ghostbusters films. With Paul Feig’s take on the story finished shooting and at the editing stage, The Tracking Board has learned that the studio is developing an animated film based on the ghost-hunting gang.No writer or director is attached yet, and the actual eventual content of the film remains locked behind executive doors at Reitman’s Ghost Corps company for now. But the cartoon nature of the film possibly points to the surviving original cast of Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson and Sigourney Weaver – who all have cameoed in Feig’s film – returning to their original roles for a movie the studio no doubt helps can lure in a younger crowd.Of course, that depends on whether this turns out to be a new take on the classic story or some new direction. »
Hollywood clearly isn't busy enough with both a female and male (allegedly) Ghostbusters to make, as now there's an animated movie on the way too.
Everything we know so far about the all-female Ghostbusters: Plot spoilers, cast and theme song
No writer or director are attached to the project just yet, while plot details are also unknown at this stage.
This isn't the first Ghostbusters animation. An animated series followed the first film in the '80s.
BBC Three today announces Class, a new Doctor Who spin-off from the acclaimed young adult author Patrick Ness. Class is a Ya series set in contemporary London. Incredible dangers are breaking through the walls of time and space, and with darkness coming, London is unprotected. With all the action, heart and adrenaline of the best Ya fiction (Buffy, Hunger Games), this is Coal Hill School and Doctor Who like you've never seen it before. The show is 8x45, meaning 8 episodes at 45 minutes apiece. Here's what Doctor Who executive producer Steven Moffat had to say in a statement.
"No one has documented the dark and exhilarating world of the teenager like , and now we're bringing his brilliant storytelling into Doctor Who. This is growing up in modern Britain - but with monsters!"
Patrick Ness is author of nine books, including six bestselling and critically acclaimed Ya novels. He has written the »
Back in 2013, a film was announced of Don DeLillo's novel The Body Artist. Luca Guadagnino was set to direct a cast including Isabelle Huppert, Denis Lavant, Sigourney Weaver and David Cronenberg in one of his rare acting roles. Sadly that project never came to fruition, but the novel is now on its way back to the screen in a new form. Benoît Jacquot is now the director, and Mathieu Amalric and Jeanne Balibar are set to star.The Body Artist - a slim 2001 novella following DeLillo's colossal 1997 Underworld - is often described as a ghost story, but is really not quite that. A meditation on perception, time and grief, the book features long passages in which characters make breakfast or stare at webcam footage of empty roads in Finland. It does, however, involve the enigmatic appearance of a young man in an apartment, who may or may not be real. »
Over the last few weeks, Ridley Scott has been making the promotional rounds for his highly-anticipated sci-fi drama The Martian, which is already getting Oscar buzz ahead of its release this weekend. The filmmaker has also been discussing his Prometheus follow-up, which was recently given the new title of Alien: Paradise Lost. Many fans were disappointed that Prometheus didn't have much connection to the director's original classic Alien, but that will certainly change. While speaking with Yahoo! Movies, Ridley Scott confirmed that John Milton's classic story Paradise Lost helped inform his sequel to Prometheus.
"Have you ever read Paradise Lost, by Milton? In a funny kind of way, it's an interesting basis for the darkness of [Prometheus 2]. Where the good-looking guy, who is evil as s-t, gets all the girls and goes to the nightclubs. The other guy, who is not quite as good-looking, is boring as hell and stays home. »
"Everyone else is" is probably the worst reason or excuse to embark on any kind of creative endeavor, but believe it or not, director Ridley Scott is trotting out those exact words when asked if there's a possibility of more than one "Blade Runner" sequel. "Listen: Everyone else is, so why not? I love to work," Scott told Yahoo when they asked about the possibility of more "Blade Runner" movies. "The French say, 'Work to live,' and I live to work. I’m very lucky to have a job that I adore. All my kids do the same thing. Some of it’s trying, but it’s like being in professional sport. It’s so competitive [that] you better keep bouncing the ball. You can’t rest. Read More: Sigourney Weaver Says Ridley Scott Dropped 'Alien 3' After Learning 'Alien vs. Predator' Was Developing That being said, Scott is protective »

Chastain, who is currently promoting her role opposite Matt Damon in Ridley Scott space drama The Martian, is known for dramatic roles in civil rights period piece The Help and super-serious science-fiction thriller Interstellar. But she retains an interest in taking on big-budget fantasy projects, provided the role on offer doesn’t require her to don tight clothing.

Details might be scarce at the moment, but consider this your one-stop shop (which will be updated as new info arrives) for cast, plot rumours and potential spoilers on the new Alien movie.
Ridley Scott is back in the director's chair for more (a lot more)
Despite arriving to a mixed reception from critics in 2012, Prometheus banked a hefty $400 million at the worldwide box office to all but guarantee a sequel.
Scott, who kick-started the Alien franchise way back in 1979, will be directing Paradise Lost now that he's done with The Martian. Prometheus marked Scott's first sci-fi since 1983's Blade Runner - now he can't get enough of the genre.
"I thought I'd left science fiction for too long, that I had better climb back in. »
Avatar 2 producer Jon Landau has unveiled the following illustration of a female Na'vi character believed to be Neytiri, who was played by Guardians of the Galaxy actress Zoe Saldana in the first film. It certainly resembles her, though there's always the chance it's brand new character too of course. Story details still remain a mystery, but we have been told that this sequel (and the other 2 that are in the works) will revolve around an "overall spiritual journey". In addition to Saldana, we know that Sigourney Weaver will also return, and Avatar 2 is currently set for release in 2017. »
We already know that Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Ernie Hudson will make cameos in the upcoming reboot of the "Ghostbusters" franchise. And now comes word from director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) that another cast member of the original films has just joined the reboot. "Trying to keep surprises but this is about to leak, so I'll tell you myself: the awesome Sigourney Weaver is going to be in our movie," he wrote on Twitter. While it wasn't revealed whether she would reprise her role, it's believed that she'll play a new character like Murray, Aykroyd and Hudson. "Ghostbusters" stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth. It's set to hit theaters on July 15th, 2016. »
With shooting now wrapped on his version of Ghostbusters, you might think that Paul Feig wouldn’t have to worry about leaks from the set. But after the likes of Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd’s cameos got out, he’s had to get ahead of one last info-spill, announcing on Twitter that Sigourney Weaver will also show up in some capacity.Nothing is known about who she’ll be playing in the film – we doubt it’ll be Dana Barrett, since Feig’s film, written with Katie Dippold, spins a different story about the creation of a ghostbusting team – but it’s nice to know that the surviving original leads will all turn up in some capacity, with Ernie Hudson having dropped in on the last day of shooting. Of course, with the Gatekeeper showing up, it sets us hoping that the Keymaster – Aka Rick Moranis (who played Louis »
Paul Feig, take a bow.
Having now endured months of moronic and misogynistic backlash to his all-female Ghostbusters reboot, the writer-director has finally had enough. And the tipping point was glorious to behold.
You've been ranting at me and my cast for months with misogyny and insults. So go fuck yourself. Goodnight. #enough https://t.co/r3XNfWP68c

"You've been ranting at me and my cast for months with misogyny and insults. So go f**k yourself. Goodnight," Feig wrote in response to Twitter user Robert M Cassidy, who has made it known that he is very, very unhappy about his beloved Ghostbusters franchise being polluted by estrogen.
And there was more.
You all have no idea what we did, so stop acting like you do. Enough is enough. Just let this movie happen. #enough https://t.co/lBZGHaNEbz

In between telling trolls to go fuck themselves this week, Paul Feig has made an announcement on his Twitter. I'm just getting in there before some of you go losing your shit about us leaking something. Gang, trying to keep surprises but this is about to leak, so I'll tell you myself: the awesome Sigourney Weaver is going to be in our movie! — Paul Feig (@paulfeig) September 25, 2015 So that's Sigourney Weaver, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Bill Murray all making cameos. Presumably, Weaver will follow the in the footsteps of the other cameos and actually make an appearance, but not as her original character. Can Rick Moranis now be dragged out of retirement too? Are all these cameos to please the fans? Truth be told, I'm not a fan of an all female Ghostbusters. Not because I believe woman should be chained to the sink, giving birth while washing the dishes. »

Every week the entertainment world provides us with the unfortunate, the inexcusable, and the questionable. Here are this week’s disappointments.
None of this is surprising or even worthy of mention. When they figure out how to get Harold Ramis to appear in the film, wake me up.
Hugh Jackman played Wolverine in seven movies. One and a half of those movies were good. Maybe we should stop pretending his Wolverine was some kind of genre defining role and that we’ll all be lamenting his departure. Tom Hardy is already a better Wolverine than Jackman based on the grunting he did in Fury Road.
Apparently Damon does not have a Netflix subscription. »
