article imageRidley Scott's 'Alien' prequel will be shot using 3D technology

By Andrew Moran     Mar 7, 2010 in Entertainment
Art Director Roger Christian has recently confirmed that Ridley Scott's "Alien" prequel will be shot in 3D with Scott-Free Productions producing the motion picture.
The upcoming “Alien” prequel, which will be directed by Ridley Scott, the director of the original “Alien” and “Gladiator,” will be shot in 3D, according to Empire Online. Art Director Roger Christian revealed the information in an interview with Shadowlocked.
Christian further added that there will be more “tricks” added to the film but the 3D aspect will play a major role in one of the most successful horror franchises. The Art Director said he was told when he met up with Scott at a recent film festival.
“Ridley told me some of his ideas. He has a very clear understanding of where this should go. They kind of stopped dead one of the greatest horror franchises there's ever been, and it had legs to go on. So I'm hoping he'll revive another three,” said Christian.
Digital Spy reports that Christian believes the resurrection of the “Alien” franchise using 3D technology could spawn three more “Alien” films, which originally created three sequels and two “Alien vs. Predator” crossovers. The films have made just under $1 billion at the worldwide box office.
Scott-Free Productions will produce the prequel and the story will return to the original story of just one alien creature, notes Movie Web.
It was announced last August that Ridley Scott would return to direct the prequel.
