Not One But Two Alien Prequels In The Works?
Last week we got some more details on the Alien prequel thanks to MTV, but now Collider have managed to tease a little more information out of Ridley Scott – there will be not one but two prequels to the hallowed franchise.
“It’ll be two,” said Ridley. “Prequel one and two, then Alien 1“. When asked if he was planning to shoot the two films back to back, he replied, “At the moment I’m just trying to get the first one out.”
Giving that the orginal plan for the sequel was to have commericals director Carl Erik Rinsh in the director’s chair, it might be that Ridders hands control over to him for the second instalment.
We can expect it to hit screens late 2011 or 2012.
What do you think Alien fans? A welcome return to the Nostromo or the desecration of a timeless classic?
