Default Ridley Scott's Alien Prequel - Prometheus (2012)



Was originally intended as a prequel to Ridley Scott's Alien (1979), but Scott decided to turn it into an original film with Noomi Rapace (who was already set to star in the prequel) still in the cast as one of five main characters. Some time later however, it was confirmed that the movie will take place in the same universe as Alien (1977), it will greatly reference that movie, but it will, for the bigger part, be an original movie and not a direct prequel.

'Alien' is a truly great film. An all time classic sci-fi horror, which hasn't dated hardly in the slightest. I can't see any reason to remake this at all!

I can: $$$$$


Seriously, I don't mind this at all. The director is a commercial director with some potential (he made that creepy dancing robot Heineken commercial) and its being produced by the Scott bros.

If it sucks you always have the original. The more horror the better!

That sucks even though its gonna be a origns story.
Which means where the Aliens are from.

Tony Scott is producing it so there might be some hope but yet again they want a new director that has been doing music videos which seems like a FAIL.

This is where we find out that the Aliens are from an abusive family and that they were really only trying to find someone to love them all along!

Also: Sheri Moon is the original Alien queen.
