Plot Updates on 2 new ALIEN MoviesMeh
I am pretty excited for Ridley Scotts upcoming two new ALIEN movies and Eric Vespe at AICN has posted some pretty great updates from the Hero Complex Film Festival. The upcoming prequel will be shot as two films which is something we already knew.
Ridley Scott also revealed that the scripts are done and he is now prepping to begin shooting which again was not exactly cutting news but the real tidbits that Eric gets are directly about the timeline and the overall plot. Quotting Ridley Scott this film will be based before the first film and will explain the space jockey that we see but is never explained;
I am extremely excited for the upcoming Alien Prequels mainly beacuse of who is doing it. Eric has some great details and commentary on his piece about the original Alien, Blade Runner and Ridley's other projects. Be sure to go read it.
“I sat thinking about the franchise, which now has died on the road somewhere way back and lying in the dust, and thought what I should do is go back… in the first Alien, when John Hurt climbed up and over the top of the rise… there was a massive giant lying in a chair. The chair was either a form of engine or some piece of technology and I always thought no one has ever asked who was the space jockey?”
