The supposed upcoming Alien prequel movie (to be directed by Ridley Scott) has now been transformed into a new original sci-film called “Prometheus”. Hu-what!? I know right? Here’s actually a direct quote from Ridley Scott about the new project:
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.
I feel relieved and yet disappointed at the same time. I love the Alien franchise and I don’t mind seeing it back on the big screen (especially with the franchise’s original director at helm). But at the same time, I don’t mind also having a new and original science fiction movie by Ridley Scott.
Hey, as long as the movie will feature aliens, then we should all be happy right?
*Picture above obviously doesn’t have anything to do with the movie. It’s Prometheus from Megaman ZX.*
