Sigourney Weaver continues to tease audiences about the relationship between Prometheus and an Alien prequel. In an interview with Hollywood Outbreak the actress states that “I actually talked to Ridley about this very idea, and I’m delighted he’s doing it.” Director Ridley Scott has hinted off and on that Prometheus will tell the story of the ship on LV426, the alien space jockey, and explain where the alien creatures actually came from.
I must admit to feeling a little torn. On the one hand, the Alien franchise doesn’t need another movie. In fact, most of us pretend the franchise only consists of two movies. On the other hand, Scott’s return is welcome, and he certainly has picked an interesting angle to explore.
Prometheus stars Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron and has a planned Summer 2012 release date.
