Prometheus Not So Alien-less?

According to an article posted by SkyMovies, Prometheus isn’t going to be as Alien-less as we were led to believe:

“They’ve built the ‘space jockey’ cockpit at Pinewood as seen in the original Alien film, so it definitely takes place in the same world as Alien”, they told us.

“Despite that press release that seemed to indicate there were no aliens in the movie, the familiar HR Giger-style aliens do appear. Big ones apparently.”

“Part of the film will be shot in Morocco. I’ve heard that some sort of archaeological dig where they discover alien DNA takes place there and that DNA gives them the coordinates for an alien world. I’ve also heard Morocco is being used for alien planet landscapes so I’m not sure if it’s an archaeological dig on another planet,” they revealed.

As well as this, article mentions an “enormous head” that pilots the main spaceship and the mention of the shoot in Morocco was rumored earlier in November.

In addition, this news came not long after the announcement Michael Fassbender has been cast to play an android. Thanks to Outpost31, Darkoo and Kieran for the news.

    Well, the filming in Morrocco was confirmed last December by Nourreddine Sail, head of the country’s main film body, the Moroccan Cinema Centre mentioned in a report in the Financial Times of all places

    Ridley Scott to start shooting his next film, the upcoming Alien prequel, at the country’s southern Ouarzazate film studios next February and March.

    So the movie will start filming in February.

    Hmmm. Weird how it went from:

    -This is an Alien prequel, featuring the space jockies and other concepts

    -But, "the Original Alien as a shape is worn out and not scary anymore so we are redesigning it"

    To:

    -The project has evolved past being an Alien Prequel into a more grand and epic sci-fi film with hints of the Alien universe

    To:

    -Not only are there the original space jockeys, but we are going to the Alien homeworld, AND there are original Giger Aliens, AND they are giant in size!

    Maybe they change their minds again in May. ::) I don't want to be disappointed twice and have to wait for more informations in the future.

    It didn't come yesterday but I've still yet to check the post today. If Empire are under embargo on Captain American info then I'll probably just receive it around the same time as everyone else. They've been known to do that before.

    EDIT: Just checked. Nothing but bills  :(

    I have it on subscription so I should receive the issue any day now (hopefully tomorrow) since subscribers are usually sent issues earlier. I'll post up any new details if the issue contains them but it sounds more like just a run through of the current production history for the general public rather than anything that's going to shed new light.
    Cant' wait :-X

    i wound be to hyped about it tbh it will just be the stuff we already no and the things they wish would be in it.

    Soldier was in the same Universe as Blade Runner. Not that it made any difference to that shit heap.

    Setting it in the same universe as Alien is a fresh idea, just bare in mind that this has gone wrong in the past with bad directors, e.g Soldier being set in the same universe as Blade Runner. I highly doubt Ridley will make a mistake as big as that though.


    Lol, I found Blade Runner to be a hugely overrated snooze-a-thon, while Soldier was at least an entertaining action movie with a few moments of genuine emotion.

    Besides, I know that both the writer and director of Soldier have imagined the film as being in the Blade Runner universe, but I don't think that's anything official.
    1] BLASPHEMY!
    2] David Peoples co-wrote Blade Runner, it's related to Soldier only so far as he considered the soldiers themselves as sort of replicants, and wrote it with that BR universe in mind. That's pretty much as official as you can get, though the two IP's don't originate from the screenwriter.

    I don't really let Soldier blight me when watching BR.

    Well it was more than just that , specific details - The battle of Tannhauser Gate , plus the spinner vehicles from Blade Runner. It was on screen. 

    It was kind of cool , but the movie sucked.

    Alien related or not....it will be defenately better than avp.....avp movies were not scary.
    Had no depth and the second one reminded me movies like: ''i know what you did last summer'',''final destination'' ect....
    Even alien 4 was 300 times more serious,scary and solid movie than the 2 avp movies.

    I dont like Ridley changed his mind about the alien prequel or whatever this is going to be...but
    He would never do a movie of that style and depth.

    yeah but come on its scott wat ever film he does its amazing i cannot wait to see what he has come up with to be honest

    Or the film could just be about some guy named Prometheus who travels in space and gets into some mischief.  LOL.

    This. I love it when people come across as Plato when they just looked up wiki and had a 3 minute think about a connection.

    This.  I love it when people come across as pompous and matter-of-factly when they can't even contribute to message boards properly.  Tool. 




    I was actually giving you props for having the sense to put that sentence on the end, since I just read 10 pages of 10 year olds give me history lessons. You didn't get it, keep on truckin.

    It turns out that Ridley Scott's recent comments that Prometheus would be a departure from the Aliens series are somewhat misleading.

    An exclusive source has told us that not only are HR Giger's classic aliens in it, but that they're integral to the plot.

    Mere hours after the announcement that Michael Fassbender is locked in to play an android with rumoured links to Aliens' Bishop series, our insider sources have revealed that he's not the only one with strong links to the series' past.

    Alien 27This is back too...."They’ve built the ‘space jockey’ cockpit at Pinewood as seen in the original Alien film, so it definitely takes place in the same world as Alien", they told us.
     
    "Despite that press release that seemed to indicate there were no aliens in the movie, the familiar HR Giger-style aliens do appear. Big ones apparently."

    And as for Scott's comments noting that "keen fans will recognise strands of Alien's DNA"?

    It turns out there was the slightest hint of misdirection - apparently the actual DNA of the xenomorphs is integral to the plot - and will see the cast jet off to the alien homeworld itself.

    "Part of the film will be shot in Morocco. I’ve heard that some sort of archaeological dig where they discover alien DNA takes place there and that DNA gives them the coordinates for an alien world. I’ve also heard Morocco is being used for alien planet landscapes so I’m not sure if it’s an archaeological dig on another planet," they revealed.

    It gets weirder too, with Damon Lindelof's script set to crank up the sci-fi angle to maximum effect.
     
    "The main spaceship in the film will be piloted by an enormous head which I assume will be CGI. Yep, sounds weird but I assume some of the technology will be sort of biomechanical."

    I am very happy that this film will have Aliens in it. I think the rumour about the Aliens being big ones must be to do with them being born from the space jokeys. I just dont understand why Ridley scott a few weeks ago came out and said this will be an original story outside the alien universe.

    The Evolution of Prometheus
    It began as an Alien prequel, but after months of speculation Ridley Scott has finally settled on a form, and title, for Prometheus. Just to bring you up to date, however, we have assembled a timeline of the rumours, alleged script leaks and actual quotes about the film's development so that, when Prometheus finally rises, you'll know where it's coming from and be able to spot those "strands of Alien DNA" that we've been promised.
