Ridley Scott Talks Alien Prequel

Empire Online recently got to chat with Ridley Scott regarding the Alien prequel he will soon be directing. Can you believe it has already been 30-years since the he directed the first Alien movie that spawn one awesome sequel and 2 piles o’ poop? Crazy I know. Anyway, Empire was able to get a little taste of the story.

Here’s what Empire was able to get:

Since the prequel was announced, it’s been assumed that it would tell the story of how those nasty, slavering xenomorphs came to land on LV-426 in the first place. But after listening to Sir Ridley, suddenly we’re not so sure…

“It’s a brand new box of tricks,” said Sir Ridley. “We know what the road map is, and the screenplay is now being put on paper. The prequel will be a while ago. It’s very difficult to put a year on Alien, but [for example] if Alien was towards the end of this century, then the prequel story will take place thirty years prior.”

Looks like it will take a  human focus, but what do you think of the director returning the world of Alien?
