Ridley Scott Talks PROMETHEUS and ALIEN Ties
When it comes to the upcoming film, Prometheus, the big question on everybody’s mind has been whether the movie is or isn’t a prequel to the Alien films. Director Ridley Scott finally answers that question… sort of.
When Scott first started working on Prometheus, it was referred to as a sequel or prequel to Scott’s Alien movies, then it was revealed to definitely be a prequel, at least until it was determined that Prometheus had nothing to do with the characters that exist within the Alien franchise. Later, Scott teased that Prometheus shared some “Alien DNA” with the sci-fi horror classic, but that it still definitely wasn’t a prequel.
Scott recently sat down with the gang at SpeakEasy to talk about Prometheus and he actually shared some decent info about his newest sci-fi project, revealing that the movie follows in the footsteps of mythology with a story about a “higher being” challenging the gods because they don’t want to share the power of technology. When the technology is taken anyway, the higher being is punished “in perpetuity in a horrible fashion.”
As far as any links to Alien goes, Scott reveals the secret is hidden within the end of the film, saying the last eight minutes of the movie evolve into “a pretty good DNA of the ‘Alien’ one.”
I don’t know about you, but I still don’t know what the heck he means by that.
Prometheus will be arriving in theaters in June 2012.
