Alien prequel going to ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’

Alien prequel going to ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’

To deter a cease-and-desist, I’ll restrain commenting too much on the “Alien” prequel script – but what I will say is that the film will be, in the very least, a much ‘different’ experience than the previous four films in the series. Some may relish it’s uniqueness, others will undoubtedly be disappointed that it’s not more in tune with, in particular, the 1979 and 1986 installments of the franchise.

Director Ridley Scott says the film, set 30 years before the events of the original “Alien” (1979), will be “be really tough, really nasty,” he notes in an interview with The Independent. “It’s the dark side of the moon. We are talking about gods and engineers. Engineers of space. And were the aliens designed as a form of biological warfare? Or biology that would go in and clean up a planet?”

Scott says he’s got his work cut out for himself on the film (which will answer the question we, well, never really wanted answered : Who is the Space Jockey in “Alien”?), which will be a two-hour 3D flick, namely because everyone’s so ga-ga for Cameron’s “Aliens”.

“Jim’s raised the bar and I’ve got to jump to it,” he says, in a friendly jibe at Cameron. “He’s not going to get away with it.”
