In a continuation from his interview with Wall Street Journal’s Speakeasy, filmmaker Ridley Scott has finally said something on the record about how his next feature “Prometheus” and his legendary 1979 sci-fi horror tale “Alien” will mix. As per usual though, it’s a little vague.
Scott tells the paper that last eight minutes of Prometheus will become “a pretty good DNA of the Alien one.” 20th Century Fox confirmed to the paper that Sigourney Weaver will NOT be making a cameo of any kind in the film.
Scott loves the practical – “I’m a great believer in filming the real thing if you can and so I did a lot of building the real thing.” Yet he’s also embraced “all the tricks, the toys” for this film including 3D and computer animation. As a result , he’s had “the best time I’ve had in a number of years making a movie.”
