Ridley Scott has spoken to MTV News about the Alien prequel he’s currently working on.
The director told our US team that the film is definitely happening and that he’s currently working on a screenplay.
The British movie legend revealed: “As we speak, I've got a pile of pages next to me; it's like the fourth draft. It's a work in progress, but we're not dreaming it up anymore. We know what the story is… It’s a work in progress, but we're actually making the film. There's no question about it, we're going to make the film.
Asked about the storyline Scott confirmed it will feature a female heroine although he said Sigourney Weaver would not be involved.
He explained: “I've already got people working graphically on designs for the various requirements of the film. It's set in 2085, about 30 years before Sigourney [Weaver's character Ellen Ripley]. “
Ridley added: “We're hoping to have it in theaters in late 2011, or maybe the best date in 2012.”
In other movie news film bosses are reportedly making plans for a third Men In Black movie- to be released in 3D.
It’s claimed that original MIB stars Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are already signed up for the project.
