Alien Prequel will be filmed by Ridley Scott in 3D

Roger Christian, the art director for the original Alien film director by Ridley Scott recently confirmed that the upcoming prequel will be shot in 3D. Oh, everyone wants Avatar money now. Mr. Christian has said of Scott’s Alien Prequel plans:

Ridley told me some of his ideas when we were here in Toronto. He has a very clear understanding of where this should go. They kind of stopped dead one of the greatest horror franchises there’s ever been, and it had legs to go on. So I’m hoping he’ll revive another three. The world certainly wants it, and the fans want it – everybody.

I have a lot of faith in Scott. He certainly knows how to direct action and suspense, and when it calls for it he can go intelligent and sublime in his films. Here’s hoping his Alien prequel has a little bit of all of these elements.

  • Xenomorphs in 3D is going to be IN-SANE! I can't wait… and yes everybody wants that Avatar 3D money so we better get used to this for the next year or so… think Matrix rotation camera and super-slow-mo effects. Gotta love imitation… but it's Ridley Scott!

  • Think Wire-fu. Christ that was bad time in film making.

    I hope the tech scenes are good, I know the aliens will do their thing.
