Just recently, director Ridley Scott announced that the Alien prequel he was set to direct and penned by Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof, had taken a life of its own and will now be conceived as an original project named Prometheus.
However, according to Sky Movies, Prometheus will still have a storyline that ties in directly with the Alien franchise, and this will include the popular H.R. Giger designed creatures. Giger has been previously linked to being involved in the prequel so the possibility of him being involved in this new project is strong.
Sources say that "despite that press release that seemed to indicate there were no aliens in the movie, the familiar H.R. Giger-style aliens do appear. Big ones apparently. They've built the 'space jockey' cockpit at Pinewood as seen in the original Alien film, so it definitely takes place in the same world as Alien "
Insiders also confirm that the plot centres around a space crew and the discovery of alien DNA on an archeological expedition, which will eventually lead them to an alien world.
Rumours also state that the film is said to involve "biochemical technology" and the spacecraft may be piloted by a giant CGI head.
The release date for Prometheus is June 8, 2012. Are you happy with Scott´s return to the science fiction genre?
