Rumors of the Alien prequel are to good to resist writing about. Some say Fox is sitting on their hands in a wait and see others say that it has the green light and the script is being written. scifimoviepage.com reports that the plot will be about the Jockey. That is what they are calling that dead giant being that was found in the space ship from the first Alien movie.
Back in 2004 director Scott told Empire magazine that “we have an idea for a fifth one, all about the Jockey. He wasn’t an Alien; he was another race. They use Alien eggs to overrun planets, then kill the Aliens with an antidote and take the worlds for themselves. Bacteriological warfare.” (The giant so-called “Space Jockey” was briefly glimpsed during the early scenes of the first Alien movie where the spaceship crew investigates a distress signal and comes across an alien derelict spaceship.
So the movie will be the events just prior to the first Alien which Ripley’s ship who responded to a distress call. Cool concept of having another alien race involved to revive the franchise and probably a good thing to leave Sigourney Weaver’s Character Ellen Ripley out of it as well which is planned.
But at the bottom of the page of that post there is a link to Fantastique another sci fi news site that reports that Scott the producer who is suppose to have started the Alien movie as his next project has now started another one. Leaving the question What happen to the Alien prequel .
According to reports on IMDb.com and elsewhere Ridley Scott’s next project will “center on the fashion design empire of Gucci and is likely to star Leonardo DiCaprio and Angelina Jolie as Maurizio Gucci and his ex-wife Patrizia.”
Hopefully FOX will get that all straightened out and get the film on track which I have a feeling since it is one of their more successful franchise films they will. And everything I am reading the film does have the green light. Just the news coming out of the blogs and news stream about it seems to be a bit confusing . Just hope it does not end up to be like Alien Vs Predator Requiem which was a horrid film that fell way short of what it could of been.
