article imageRidley Scott reveals details on 'Alien' 3D prequel

By Andrew Moran     Apr 24, 2010 in Entertainment
The director of the upcoming motion picture "Robin Hood," Ridley Scott, spoke with MTV this week to discuss his anticipated ‘Alien’ prequel, which will be shot in 3D and set in 2058.
In August, it was announced that Ridley Scott would return to revamp the “Alien” franchise by directing a prequel to the film. Earlier this year, it was confirmed that the prequel will be shot in 3D.
On Friday, the director of “Gladiator” and “The Kingdom of Heaven” spoke with MTV to reveal some details about the “Alien” prequel. So far, what is known is that the film will star a woman and set 30 years prior to the first film.
The plot will be about the Space Jockey (the character who was sitting in the alien vehicle in the beginning of the first movie) and will most likely not star Sigourney Weaver or have the same alien creature that has been used on a consistent basis because, according to Scott, it’s “worn out.”
“As we speak, I've got a pile of pages next to me; it's like the fourth draft. We're not dreaming it up anymore. We know what the story is. We're actually making the film. I've already got people working graphically on designs,” said Scott, reports Worst Previews.
Entertainment Weekly noted that not a lot of actresses in Hollywood today could play the lead role the same way Sigourney Weaver did.
The film is set to be released by the end of 2011 or at some time in 2012.
