We come not to praise the Xenomorph, but to bury it


The Alien prequel, we are told, is dead. Still, better nuke that script from orbit.

It's the only way to be sure.

Well, that's it, it seems, for the highly-anticipated return of Ridley Scott to the Alien franchise. The 73 year-old director has worked so extensively on the script by Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof and many other sources of input that the famous movie monster, known for a complicated life-cycle, has evolved itself into...nothing. The Alien Paradise project, rumoured to have an Avatar-style jungle-vibe, is now a new and original SF movie called Prometheus, starring Noomi Rapace.

Much more at Shadowlocked. As the piece suggests, there is no word on what this change of plan means for H.R. Giger's involvemnet in the project.
