I’ll keep it short. I read on various websites, that the Alien Prequels are back on, and that Ridley Scott is still attached. But, apparently, they want to cast either Noomi Rapace,(from the swedish version of the film Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) or the actress from Wall Street 2, Carey Mulligan.
Whoever they pick, they best be bad ass as hell. Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley is one of my favorite alien hunting bad asses, along with R.J. Macready from The Thing played by Kurt Russel, and of course Agent Mulder from The X Files, played by David Duchovny.
Oh Sigourney, I don’t care how old you are, you can blow my aliens out of the airlock, anytime.
Also, supposedly, Scott says the prequel may contain that gigantic creature found inside the derelict, the Alien ship from the first film.
I read an article the other day, over on Dread Central,that contained a very exciting set of words from Ridley Scott about the Alien prequels he plans to make. So, in honor of that, here are some pictures from H.R. Giger.
