Two Alien Prequels

Two Alien Prequels

Recently while promoting his new film ‘Robin Hood’, Ridley Scott spoke to about the alien prequel. It seems Ridley now plans on making two alien prequel films as a lead up to the original classic. When asked if he was developing the new movie as a larger story Scott stated “It’ll be two. It’ll be prequel one and prequel two. Then Alien 1.”

There seems to be no word yet as to whether the two films will be shot back to back or separately however Scott did discuss briefly the challenges filming an Alien movie in 3D would present, primarily in regards to the lighting.

So there you have it, two new Alien films in 3D no less, with the films not even in pre-production yet you can be rest assured they will be filmed in 3D as opposed to a post-production conversion process such as what Clash of the Titans suffered.

It’s still a long way off seeing these films in cinema and things could change but for now the possibility of two new films give Alien fans plenty to look forward to.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
