Thanks for sharing.
Noomi isnt in it. I m ok with that, but explanation is needed!
I'm not entirely sure if I get to work with Fassbender. I'm really excited to work with Katherine Waterston, she's a stellar actor. She's amazing in Inherent Vice". The actor he's most excited to work with, however, is Crudup.
He wont work with Fassbender???
Opinions? He will work with actors who play Covenant crew, but will not work with Fassbender.
Well we know that Covenant crew will find David in Paradise, so how possible is that someone whose charachter is important in terms of story is not going to meet with David? If we presume that the discovery of David is early in the film, then how is possible that Rigby's charachter is not going to interact with David at all? Are there two separate storylines in movie? If there are multiple Davids in the movie, how is possible that Rigby will not work with Fassbender? Puzzling questions?
"Because there's an end result being the original Alien, it has to connect. People can expect similar things to happen, it is an Alien franchise [film]. It does translate. Obviously it's a completely different cast - Noomi isn't in it. I think it goes from the first to second one pretty fluidly".
So it HAS to connect! It means that the movie will focus on Prometheus story about Engineers but will now explore more of Xeno origin story. I dont fully understand what he means by saying this: People can expect similar things to happen...? What similar things? When he says: "I think it goes from the first to second one pretty fluidly", well that obviously proved that the focus will be on the story Prometheus started (+emphasis on Xeno as it was originaly intended) but what happened to Shaw then?
"It does translate" - From Prometheus storyline to Alien...?Similar things
- maybe in terms of Alien movie crucial elements... crew find something they are not familiar with in a claustrophobic closed space (facilities, temples, ships) and then the terror begins... I wrote that Ridley is done with cat and mouse story
(he said that one month ago), well thats because he now wants to exploer philospohical dimension of Xeno existance and he possibly wants to connect beast's story with our story and perheaps with Engineers, David and maybe someone we are yet to see... So all this doesnt exclude action and Xeno chasing some of the crew or other creatures. It is afterall the point of the movie... horror and chaos! We ll see all the stages of the beast and there will be some serious horror, but the story will not be focused on horror but on existential questions Prometheus asked (beast itself is used up as Ridley himself said, but its purpose is not... so REASONS of creations and its CREATOR will be crucual story to explore in next three)! What Ridley all along wanted is to lift the meaning of the creature. It is a bio-weapon, but the purpose of that weapon is existential and philospohical in its nature and is ultimately connected with all he introduced in Prometheus and is about to introduce in coming movies... Religious elements are very important. So Xeno is a weapon, but its purpose is grand and is connected with Engineers, humans and its creator is someone we dont expect...
