Ridley Scott has been doing a lot of talking lately about the ALIEN prequel he’ll direct for 20th Century Fox. Following his comments that we reported on here, he dished some more about his plans for the 3-D production over the weekend.
“If the first ALIEN took place in 2090, [the new movie] will take place in the years before that, when they first come across this thing on a planet called Zeta Reticuli,” Scott says of his return to the franchise he helped create back in 1979, according to Screen Daily. “And it will ask who was that guy in the first film lying in a chair with his chest blown outwards when they first go into the giant spacecraft. The film will be really tough, really nasty. It’s the dark side of the moon. We are talking about gods and engineers. Engineers of space. And were the aliens designed as a form of biological warfare? Or biology that would actually go in and clean up a planet?”
Scott also promises that his use of dimensional photography in the latest ALIEN will one-up AVATAR by James Cameron—who, of course, took the groundwork laid by Scott and co. in ’79 to the next level in ALIENS. “Jim raised the bar and I’ve got to jump to it,” Scott says. “It’s that simple. He’s not going to get away with it.”
