Ridley Scott’s Western + More New Info on His Alien Prequel!

We already know quite a bit about the prequel, from an update in April, but Scott confirmed a few details. He explained: “I sat thinking about the franchise, which now has died… And I always thought, ‘no one has ever asked… who the hell is the Space Jockey?’ So it’s written and I’m prepping it now.” So it’s about the big alien who was found dead in the chair in the spaceship in the first Alien. Ridley added that it takes place “way before” Alien because he’s going to try and “squeeze in” two prequels, as we already know. But why?

“Because if you explain who he was and where he comes from, then that will deal with the savagery of this version [the 1979 Alien], which is pretty savage. Then you may want to find out where they came from, so you may want to go to him, and go to there place where his people come from.”

The Aliens Prequel sounds pretty cool. Would you see the prequel? Or does it feel like they’re trying to resurrect an old movie?

I am not surprised that Transformers can’t blow shit up near the White House. Are you?
