An alleged early Prometheus draft by writer Jon Spaihts has surfaced online today. The draft, named Alien: Engineers, was uploaded this Tuesday to the website Scribd.com, the largest online library. The document shows the Alien Prequel that became Prometheus and contains many of the unused plot points that were revealed on the Prometheus Blu-ray release from this October. There’s a debate over whether or not this script is legitimate, however Jon Spaihts has confirmed moments ago via Twitter that this is indeed the real thing. You can read the full script here at the source or download it here.
“Fifield stumbles along. Exhausted. Pouring sweat inside his suit. He is hopelessly lost. He slams into a resinous structure that topples to the floor. Things break. He whips his light around in jittery paranoia. Taps at his comm controls, getting only static. In Fifield’s headlamp beam, the blackness is filling with motes of light. A blizzard of tiny flying insects. SCARABS.”
