The success of James Cameron’s Avatar has prompted other directors and movie studios to follow the bandwagon. A slew of new 3D movie projects are being announced almost daily and one of these new movie projects could be the planned Alien prequel being made by Ridley Scott and 20th Century Fox.
Shadow Locked, a sci-fi site from the UK, was able to interview Roger Christian, the art director who worked on Star Wars and Alien. Christian is in a good position to talk about the prequel because he has met with Scott about the movie and there’s talk that he could possibly work on it again with Scott. He did confirm that it is going to be shot in 3D. He also shared Scott has a clear vision of where he wants the movie to go and hinted that with the whole concept “had legs to go on”, there is a possibility that a new trilogy may be in the offing.
I’m certainly looking forward to this. I think Scott’s Alien is one of the best sci-fi horror movies ever made. And I even think that it blows Cameron’s Aliens out of the water.
