“It looks to me that the Fox deal is certainly going to go ahead with Disney, and I’ve been with Fox for a number years now,” the All the Money In the World director told Digital Spy before sounding doubt about Disney’s willingness to make a darker kind of film. “I’m hoping I’ll still probably be there so whether or not they go ahead with such a dark subject, being Disney, as aliens remains to be seen.”

What's the "darkest" Disney property? Pirates was their first PG13 movie. Thor 3 had a lot of killing in it. Nothing is hard R horror though.

The Alien Franchise is probably uncertain because the series hasn't been well received after Aliens

Alien (1979) - 97/94
Aliens (1986) - 98/94
