Ridley Scott has apparently talked about the connection between the first Alien movie and Prometheus in an interview with IC Press. The news arrives via Hungarian website Mozinezo.hu, revealing some spoilery and yet to be confirmed details about Guy Pearce’s role in the film. According to them, Ridley stated the following (translated via Google, courtesy of APN):

When the first ‘Alien’ movie and ‘Blade Runner’ were made, I thought that in the near future the world will be owned by large companies. This is why we have the Tyrell Corporation in ‘Blade Runner’, and Weyland-Yutani in ‘Alien’. They sent the Nostromo spaceship.

The Prometheus is owned by an entrepreneur called Peter Weyland, and is played by Guy Pearce. That’s the connection between the two films, and nothing more. Prometheus is a new film, a new world, and is full of new ideas. And of course new monsters as well.

This January Guy Pearce revealed to MTV Movies that he will be in the film “only for a minute“. Thanks to APN for the news.

Update: This has been now confirmed via a viral promotion for Prometheus.
