So we have another article, saying the same thing? Big surprise, I know. But I’ll post it up regardless. IESB.net has posted up a short article where they’d talked to Rothman:

“There’s been some talk. Ridley Scott, Ridley is right now working on Robin Hood, but I think he’s toying with the idea and that would be great for us. I mean, it’s always been a matter of, really, if you can get the originator to do it that would be the greatest thing, so I’ve got my fingers crossed, all of them.”

So if Ridley’s interested Fox has the door open to him. Sounds like they’re quite desperate for him in fact. But the idea of a prequel…? We’ll see. Thanks to Darkoo for the news.

Yes.  Yes.  YES!  I hope this news is real because I have wanted this ever since the second movie ended.  I have said over and over again that a prequel -- a genesis story, an origin story, etc. -- would be the shot in the arm this series needs.  Where did the Alien come from?  Where did the Space Jockey come from?  Are they from one and the same place?  And what is the Space Jockey, after all?  Where was he taking the ship?  Why was the Space Jockey race harvesting all those eggs?  If this movie does happen...with Ridley Scott at the helm...that's about as good as you could hope for.  I really hope this proves to be true.

This sure is interesting. They can show how the aliens and space jockeys are connected, and show the incident that ruined the derelict in the first movie! :D I certainly approve of this idea! :D

Why a prequel?  What happened before Alien that we need to see?  I thought most fans agreed that the Space Jockeys should be left a mystery and that's about the only backstory Alien had.  ...Personally, I think it could possibly be fun to see the overtaking of LV-426 in detail.  Otherwise, take the series forward.  I can't see anything we need to go backwards for.

What more can they do other than explain the jockey aspect? Either this film will contain no humans at all, and be all Jockeys, or some other team of humans will foolishly enter the derelict.

A prequel would be BAD!  The ship which crashed happened like a million years ago, the skeleton turned into bones and fossils, so there would be no story to it.

Very interested. Ridley would only do it if the story was good and if he's toying with ideas himself, this is very good news.

As long as Ridley is on board it's thumbs up.
