Beast has run out: Ridley Scott teases the end of Alien franchise

Oscar-winning director Ridley Scott has revealed that the Alien franchise no longer needs its alien, also known as a Xenomorph. While plans are in place for two more sequels, Scott believes that the franchise may have just run its course. While speaking in an interview, Scott said, "I figured it was a good piece of business to follow through Prometheus which, from ground zero, had good lift-off. So we went to Covenant to perpetuate the idea and [revive] the franchise of the Alien. I think the beast has almost run out, personally."
