“We’re heading toward the back end of the first Alien so [using CG] may be feasible. I don’t think it’ll… but Ripley’s going to be somebody’s daughter. Obviously. We’re coming in from the back end. The time constraints, of what’s the time between this film, where we leave David going off heading for that colony, I think you’re probably two films out from even considering her.”
In his reply, Scott also further cements his ambition to create several more Alien movies for the franchise.
Do you think it's a good idea to work with CGI to create a young Ellen Ripley, working with Sigourney Weaver? Do you want more Alien films after the release of Alien Covenant (2017)?
