He's already said that after speaking with Ridley Scott about the 'Prometheus' sequel, some of the ideas had to be removed. It's most likely that this was to do with any Space Jockey-related elements.

So, there is nothing about this project in the current SDCC?

Not that we've heard. I don't expect to really hear much towards the end of the year.

That's a shame.  Prometheus was okay but I'd just as soon ignore it.

Tru dat.  It just sucks because it was exactly what he wanted to avoid.  Didn't he say something like he was only going to make this movie if he could do it his way?   Already, he has to compromise.

Indeed. He really needs strong help in that area. Or to just pass the story off to another writer. I do love his style too. I did really enjoy Chappie and I'm quite looking forward to picking up the dvd.

I dont know judging by his films it is most likely a Aliens movie i think we have enough of that the last time we had a Alien movie was Alien 3 it is like star ship troopers with aliens that is my opinion.

The 'facility' and derelict/corpse images are great; It's all melting goo, egg-morphing kind of stuff. Fits perfectly with both Alien (mythologically) and Prometheus to my mind. It makes sense that the derelict, in oxygenated atmosphere and un-powered, would start to go gooey. Look what happened when they let oxygen into the chamber in Prometheus; the walls started to ripple, the goo went mental; a kind of bio-elemental chaos, whatever that actually means in context of the central 'monster'.

Ripley being encased in the 'pilot' gear is odd. This seems to go full-faced against Prometheus, which has that concept pretty unequivocally locked down; it's a suit that the pilots wear, with a helmet that they put on and take off. It also looks nothing like what Ripley is wearing, which is an odd Alien/Space Jockey hybrid suit that seems to me like a wonky attempt at bridging the visual gap between the pilot in Alien and the pilot in Prometheus and then throwing the whole lot into a muddy Alien puddle where they are all fundamentally the same thing. This one is fan art. Cool, but irrelevant.

But whatever happens, if Ripley and Hicks can save the day with a belt full of C4 and an old shotgun then this shit is DOOMED.

He likes 'Alien' and 'Aliens' pretty much equally (and has already said that the presentation style of 'Alien Isolation' has strongly influenced his vision for this project).
