Ridley Scott Talks About The Connection Between PROMETHEUS And ALIEN

Ok, this is now a bit clearer. To those of you who are a tad weary about spoilers - this is sort of a mini-spoiler, but if you have been following the PROMETHEUS story for awhile now you already know what's going on to a large extent. That being said, the next paragraph contains some official mini-spoilers.

The Wall Street Journal spoke with Ridley Scott about PROMETHEUS and here is what Scott had to say: The last eight minutes of the “Prometheus” story evolve into “a pretty good DNA of the ‘Alien’ one.”

We kinda knew that already EXCEPT for when the story takes a turn toward ALIEN.

As the title also hinted, the storyline will center on a "higher being" who challenges the gods for fire. "Fire is our first form of technology," Scott says, and so by taking fire, the higher being is punished "in perpetuity in a horrible fashion."

And no, Sigourney Weaver does not make an appearance in the film!

Scott on 3D and CGI: He has "completely taken off into this cyberworld" and called working on PROMETHEUS "the best time I’ve had in a number of years making a movie." That being said, he continued: "I’m a great believer in filming the real thing if you can and so I did a lot of building the real thing."

Between this movie, THE HOBBITs, AVATAR 2 & 3, TINTIN. HUGO and the re-release of STAR WARS and TITANIC I am basically beside myself in anticipation. I love 3D movies of course, but these movies set bars higher - you know what I mean?
