Is Guy Pearce's Role in PROMETHEUS Connected with ALIEN?

The Prometheus rumor train just rolled in, and it sounds like the character Guy Pearce plays in the film might just be connected to Ridley Scott's Alien. Before we continue you need to know that none of this has been confirmed, but if it's true it could be considered a spoiler

We already know from the trailer that Prometheus is in fact connected with Alien--the image of the space jockey is clear as day. But it's just been revealed that there could be another connection between the two.

Apparently had a chance to talk to Scott about the movie and here's what they claim he said about Pearce's role in the story,

When the first ‘Alien’ movie and ‘Blade Runner’ were made, I thought that in the near future the world will be owned by large companies. This is why we have the Tyrell Corporation in ‘Blade Runner’, and Weyland-Yutani in ‘Alien’. They sent the Nostromo spaceship.

The Prometheus is owned by an entrepreneur called Peter Weyland, and is played by Guy Pearce. That’s the connection between the two films, and nothing more. Prometheus is a new film, a new world, and is full of new ideas. And of course new monsters as well.

So if this bit of information is true that would be awesome and a very cool connection between the two films. I would like it to be true, but I guess we won't really know until we actually see the movie. Prometheus is sure to a crazy huge hit among us fans. What are you most excited for about Prometheus?
