    Blatant necro + news dump, but still:

    Vulture has nabbed some exclusive details on Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel—a film that, as the site notes, we can officially stop calling “Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel” and start calling Paradise. We’re not sure if that’s supposed to be just Paradise, which sounds sort of vague, or Alien: Paradise, which sounds like a Plato’s Retreat for aliens, perhaps where aliens are served pina coladas and then masturbated using mutilated cow vaginas, but either way, it’s Paradise. Perhaps it’s the same Paradise that Ridley Scott already conquest-ed in 1492; perhaps this suggests that Gerard Depardieu will burst out of someone’s chest, plant a flag, and declare, “I claim this chest in zee name of Spain!” Perhaps we’re being glib and jokey because we sort of can’t believe an Alien movie will be called Paradise. Nevertheless, that’s its name, according to Vulture. Your dad will have an awesome time making Eddie Money jokes at the box office.

    As to the recent rumors that the film would be pushed back a year, Vulture refutes those, saying they’re an echo of a stranger time when Leonardo DiCaprio was supposedly being pursued for a role. Instead, the film will definitely pick up in March, likely with Girl With The Dragon Tattoo star Noomi Rapace taking over the lead of “Elizabeth Shaw,” and possibly Michelle Yeoh taking over the part of “Vickers… a fortysomething, tough-but-sexy woman,” which sounds more like the Alien we know. Other parts include “David,” an android precursor to Lance Henriksen’s Bishop who may or may not be played by Michael Fassbender, depending on whether he gets his reportedly “outrageous” sum of money; an “older businessman along for the ride” (please be Paul Reiser playing his own father!); and “Engineer 1,” an entirely CGIed character “à la Gollum in The Lord Of The Rings.”

    Although the specifics of the plot are still unknown, Vulture does confirm that the story is essentially a “reboot of the franchise,” setting up yet another group of space travelers who encounter an alien race and are then picked off one by one. There’s no confirmation yet that the film will, as previously reported, tie into the "space jockey" glimpsed in the photo up above or, as bizarrely rumored, feature a "Brokeback Alien" scene where aliens use mind control to force two “male human slave farmers” to have sex with each other. Although that would certainly tie into that second definition of Alien: Paradise as the story of some decadent, elysian, intergalactic swingers’ party.

    It might be good, my fav was Aliens for the mil-tech/horror mix, none of the recent films (including pred) have really gotten how Aliens works psychologically:

    • Alien/No guns/trapped – scary/tense
    • 100's of Aliens/Limited/trapped guns – scary/tense
    • Alien/No guns/trapped/Crims – Scary/tense
    • 10 Aliens/lots of guns/not trapped – lame

    What I didn't like about the 4th is it becomes a bit perverse. It also loses its Sci-Fi feel at times becoming more Horror than Sci-Fi rather than Sci-Fi/Horror

    I never saw AvP1 (Paul Anderson films make me want to vomit), but I did see see AvP: Requiem, which was pretty bad but fairly watchable. It essentially was a classic Slasher film, but with sci-fi monsters.

    What I hated most about Requiem was the bizarre spin on the alien life cycle that it introduced. The Predalien bred regular human-based Xenomorphs by incubating them in pregnant women. WTF were they thinking?!

    Predators was the best one i'd seen since Alien 3 tbqh

    Resurrection, AvP1 and AvP2 all blew far more.

    Alien 3 and Pred 2 > All of the above though.

    Hmmm? Predator 1 & 2 didn't have any substance either. Nothing new there.

    H.R. Giger is involved with the production of Ridley Scott's Alien prequel(s). Good shit, man.

    In a video interview for Swiss television, the painter's wife Carmen Scheifele said her husband was "on board" for the prequel, which she said might be one of two films, both set prior to Scott's Alien.

    Speaking in Swiss German, Scheifele said: "We went to London to discuss the project and then did not hear anything back. We thought it wasn't happening, but two days ago we got the call to say it was OK."

    Should be good, though I must say I prefer Cameron's ridged design for the skull over Giger's phallic dome

    Some pretty major news: this is no longer strictly an Aliens prequel but has morphed into an orginal script called "Prometheus".

    Deadline wrote:
    First, it started out as an Alien Prequel. But then it morphed into something "more original", an insider tells us -- even though Hollywood kept referring to the project as "The Alien Prequel" right up until today when Twentieth Century Fox officially announced the new Ridley Scott production as Prometheus is now bound for worldwide release on March 9th, 2012. Returning to science fiction filmmaking for the first time since Blade Runner, Scott will direct this epic. Of the five major roles to be cast, Noomi Rapace is the first actor signed to star (as "Elizabeth Shaw"), and we hear that Angelina Jolie and Charlize Theron are both circling the other big female lead ("Vickers").

    The initial draft of the script was written by Jon Spaihts (The Darkest Hour) from Ridley’s idea. Damon Lindelof (Lost, Star Trek) and Scott have since been working together on the current version which has expanded the story into new directions. We hear they were instructed to "go off and come up with what they want" using the 'Alien DNA'. Though story details are being closely guarded, Ridley explained the outlines of the film and its genesis as follows: “While Alien was indeed the jumping off point for this project, out of the creative process evolved a new, grand mythology and universe in which this original story takes place. The keen fan will recognize strands of Alien’s DNA, so to speak, but the ideas tackled in this film are unique, large and provocative. I couldn't be more pleased to have found the singular tale I'd been searching for, and finally return to this genre that's so close to my heart.”

    Says Lindelof: "In a world flooded with prequels, sequels and reboots, I was incredibly struck by just how original Ridley's vision was for this movie. It's daring, visceral and hopefully, the last thing anyone expects. When I sat in a movie theater as a kid, feet raised off the floor for fear that something might grab my ankles, I never dreamed in my wildest imagination I would one day get to collaborate with the man responsible for it. Working alongside him has been nothing short of a dream come true."

    Swedish actress Noomi Rapace landed the scientist's role after Scott saw her portrayal of fictional Lisbeth Salander in the film The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo as well as the rest of the Steig Larssen. All Fox would say is that the other roles "would be cast soon".

    Their names always get thrown around for everything but they never end up doing it.

    I hope.

    It will probably come out that the 'space jockey' was a precursor for the Predators and Aliens.

    If something decent comes out of it and not just a literal prequel for Alien that can work well. As for Jolie and Theron, not sure how they would fit......I guess stranger things have happened.

    I'd much rather have an original film than another sequel or remake. As a film franchise, Alien is really tired, TBH.

    Jolie, Theron....really?? God, I hope not. Neither of them suit the role their supposed to be going for. Last thing I want to see is some Hollywood celebrity...they need a less well known actress imo
