Ridley Scott directing Alien Prequel



"Shadowlocked has confirmed with Star Wars and Alien art-director Roger Christian that Ridley Scott’s upcoming Alien prequel will be shot in 3D.
Christian, who ran into Ridley at a recent film festival, hopes to work on the film, and breifly experessed his excitement for the project:"


“Ridley told me some of his ideas when we were here in Toronto. 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. The world certainly wants it, and the fans want it - everybody."


The original alien director making a prequel, that sounds legit to me. One of the best series of all time, can't wait to see where he takes it; there is so much material in this story. Since it's a sequel there will be no Ripley(Sigourney Weaver) which is a shame because she has made the series what it is. It'll be interesting to see how Ridley fills that void, I finally have a movie to be legitimately fucking stoked for.
