London [India], Mar.20 (ANI): The whole world is still waiting for the release for Ridley Scott's 'Alien: Covenant' but this did not hold the director to reveal the expansion of 'Alien' universe.

The 79-year-old, in a recent interview with Fandango, seemed to confirm that he has already written the follow up to the 'Covenant,' reports The Independent.

Scott said, "There will be another one before we kind of literally and logically, clockwise, back into the rear back head of [the original] Alien."

The movie will be titled 'Alien: Awakening'.

He adds, "It will go Prometheus, Awakening, Covenant." Appearing to confirm that, it will be either a Prometheus sequel or Covenant prequel.
