Ridley Scotte teases “Prometheus” – “Alien” tie


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Ridley Scott has hinted that his upcoming science-fiction thriller “Prometheus” somehow would tie in to his classic “Alien,” yet as the production continued to film, he backed away from the statements, leading fans to speculate how the projects would be connected.

So Scott finally decided to clear up some of the vague details. While speaking to the Wall Street Journal, Scott says his recently wrapped summer blockbuster will, in its final 8 minutes, evolve into “a pretty good DNA of the ‘Alien’ one.” Though when he describes the movie, it sounds like it has very little to do with his sci-fi masterpiece.

He relates back to the “Prometheus” myth, about a “higher being” stealing fire away from Zeus and was punished … horribly.

If the tie to “Alien” is tenuous, we’ll at least be interested in “Prometheus” to see how Scott plays with 3D. Scott went so far as to say it was “the best time I’ve had in a number of years making a movie.”

Scott is keeping mum on details. Which is probably for the best. “Prometheus” reaches theaters next June.
