Ridley Scott drops hints of fifth Alien movie

Scott said he'd been talking about doing another Alien movie but complex issues were involved.

"In broad terms, it's something for those folks that want to see Ridley's Journey come full circle..."

When asked if that journey would take her to the home planet of the Aliens, he replied: "She won't necessarily see the home planet, but you might..."
