There's still very little known about Ridley Scott's new Alien film Prometheus. As you know the movie started off as a prequel to the classic 70's sci-fi horror film Alien. Then Scott came out and said that it wouldn't be a Alien prequel, but would implement some of the same ideas. According to a description from a guy that is working on the film, it sure sounds like it will be closer to an Alien film than previously believed. Check out what he had to say...
I was speaking with a guy who is working on the set of prometheus and he showed me some pictures and told me a bout the storyline. The space jockey that you see in alien who has had his chest busted open is the guy who engineers the aliens. He sends the aliens to planet that he wants to take over. The aliens kill the locals and he flys in and pillages the land of its resources. It seems as though he is responsible for the aliens creation, i’m guessing that he is some kind of super scientist.
The engineer is played by some huge guy who is 8ft tall. He appears even bigger in the space jockey scene from Alien as he is wearing a space suit. He appears to have died in a seat that looks like it is some sort of weapon control, this is in fact the navigation system that the space ship uses to open worm holes and plot its course. Perhaps the aliens revolted and, knowing that he has been impregnated, he is desperately trying to return home to have the alien extricated?
He showed me some pictures from the set. There is a huge silver bust of the engineers head, it is approximately 15m high. It appears that the engineer is sort of leader of a civilisation and there is a cult around his personality and his alien creations, this is probably due to the fact that he has mastered the technology that continues to provide the resource requirements of his home world. I also saw a picture of the actor who plays the engineer in what appeared to be some sort of cryo-chamber.
Who knows how legit this persons story is so file all of this under rumor for now until there's some more solid evidence. If it does turn out to be true… awesome! Because I like what I'm hearing.
The cast of the film includes Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba, Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace, Logan Marshall-Green, Rafe Spall and Guy Pearce. It's being planned for a June 8th 2012 release date.
