Re: The latest "Alien" prequel rumours - Scott directing, in 3-D?

Are we EVER going to find out what the Space Jockeys were all about?

I will say that I really don't like the idea of Angelina Jolie in this movie.

I hope not. I don't want to know where Yoda or Gurgi come from, either. Sometimes it's more fun to leave certain questions unanswered.

Re: The latest "Alien" prequel rumours - Scott directing, in 3-D?

This is fantastic news! While I was really looking forward to Ridley Scotts return to sci-fi, I was not keen at all on finding out the backstory of the space jockey and afraid they might ruin the mythology of the first film. The fact that it morphed into an original space-based sci-fi movie takes away any reservations I had towards the project and leaves only enthusiastic anticipation.

Angelina is considering the project...she's not confirmed yet. So there's still hope she won't be used. Personally I'd be fine with Noomi and Charlize.

Cautiously optimistic about the changes, but Ridley Scott making a new sci-fi movie is guaranteed to get my money anyway.

I'm sure it'll be good... but I wanted to see some Xenomorphs gorram it!!

(and in a decent film, which hasn't been seen for quite a while)

We could take off and nuke her from orbit?

I think this is pretty cool myself. As fun as it would be to see Scott directing another Alien film, getting a new, original scifi story from him sounds even better.

It is the only way to be sure.

There's only one scientist named Elizabeth Shaw (who also happens to fight aliens) that I give a damn about. And she ain't got nothing to do with this crap.

Re: The latest "Alien" prequel rumours - Scott directing, in 3-D?

I never liked the idea of a prequel to Alien. The origin of the derelict ship should be left a mystery, because any kind of answer would likely be disappointing.

That said, I would like to see another movie set in the Alien universe with the Xenomorphs (and no Predators!). The question is, what kind of story can be produced that would be interesting and unique?

That was the problem back in the pre-production phase of Alien 3, although I do think the third film ended up being quite unique, if very flawed.

I'll chime in with my agreement that this movie now interest me more than it did as an Alien prequel. Yeah, we all love the Alien movies, but prequels are rather limiting. Besides, for years the Space Jockey was just some cool looking corpse, and I'm fine with it staying that way.
