I have some good news and some bad news. GOOD – According to Dread Central, it is confirmed that Ridley Scott is going to be producing Neill Blomkamp’s alien film that was confirmed yesterday. BAD – Blomkamp’s Alien will take place after Ridley Scott’s Prometheus sequel.
Why is this bad news? Well, Prometheus 2 hasn’t even started filming yet. It feels like we’ve been hearing about Scott’s film for AGES. Not only this, but Scott can’t seem to decide what he wants to do with Prometheus. At first the series was to be a prequel to the Alien franchise. Then it was its own thing. Now its tied to Alien again. Regardless, it is good to hear that Scott is lending his influence and support to this exciting project.
