A while back we finally got confirmation that Ridley Scott's Prometheus does tie in to his Alien franchise after all, but what we didn't hear was how. Now Scott is speaking up, and though the details are vague, he says that the connection lies in the film's final eight minutes.
Back in August, we told you that Ridley Scott was on board to direct a follow-up to his sci-fi masterpiece, Blade Runner. But what we didn't know yet then was whether the new movie would be a sequel or a prequel. Well, it seems that Scott has decided to go down the sequel route.
Just how tied Ridley Scott's Prometheus is to his classic Alien and the flicks that followed it has been something of an open question for a while now. All we really know is we can't wait to see it. But now one of the film's stars—Rafe Spall—says he's definitely been working on an "Alien set."
We don't know much (yet) about Ridley Scott's new sci-fi epic Prometheus, but we do know it has a killer cast that includes Idris Elba, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron and Noomi Rapace, the Swedish actress who became an international star as Lisbeth Salander in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Just a day after a new plot synopsis for director Ridley Scott's Prometheus surfaced, more secrets about the upcoming sci-fi epic have been spilled—and now we're even MORE intrigued.
The flow of information about director Ridley Scott's pseudo-prequel to Alien has been slow as of late. But a new nugget has just surfaced on Prometheus' official Facebook page that sheds some interesting light.
Sure, Blade Runner is a classic NOW, but back in 1982, before anyone had seen any footage of the film, it was a gamble. So Ridley Scott put together a behind-the-scenes look which was screened at sci-fi conventions to win over the fans. And 29 years later, it's more revealing than ever before.
When you heard the news last week that director Ridley Scott would be returning to the world of Blade Runner for a new movie, we know there's no way you were blase about it. You had to either be jumping for joy or gnashing your teeth—but which?
The producers of the new Blade Runner project have landed Ridley Scott to direct the movie. The original film's star, however, is another story.
So what does Ridley Scott plan to do after exploring the Alien universe again in his current project, Prometheus? Looks like he's returning to the world of Blade Runner!
