Alien Prequel Pre Pro Spawns Entire New Universe! Ridley Scott To Proceed With PROMETHEUS!!!

Ok there's a lot of alliteration in that title, but why not have a little fun with this? After all, Ridley Scott and Damon Lindelof have just created an entirely new mythology and universe to play in for us!

is the title of the new science fiction thriller Scott has up his sleeve
and it all evolved from his working with Lindelof to flesh out the ALIEN PREQUEL.

Apparently there are some elements inherited from ALIEN but we can expect to be immersed into a brand new place. Exciting or what?

Fox has announced that Noomi Rapace (THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO) will star as "Elizabeth Shaw" and Angelina Jolie and Charlize Theron are interested in yet another major female role ("Vickers")!

Says Scott: "While Alien was indeed the jumping off point for this project, out of the creative process evolved a new, grand mythology and universe in which this original story takes place. The keen fan will recognize strands of Alien’s DNA, so to speak, but the ideas tackled in this film are unique, large and provocative. I couldn’t be more pleased to have found the singular tale I’d been searching for, and finally return to this genre that’s so close to my heart."

Added Lindelof:
"In a world flooded with prequels, sequels and reboots, I was incredibly struck by just how original Ridley’s vision was for this movie. It’s daring, visceral and hopefully, the last thing anyone expects."

If it was even possible, I am even more amped about this new direction! I am dying to see what sort of universe Scott could take us to - his last Sci-Fi was BLADE RUNNER. All those ideas in his head for so long, mixed with the creativeness of Lindelof... well let's just say anticipation is high.

Movie is set for release on March 9, 2012.
