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?
