People have been wondering since news broke on an ‘Alien’ prequel about what the plot will be about? Well wait no further, plot details were recently leaked on this upcoming Ridley Scott film. Be warned, if you wanna wait till the film comes out then don’t read any further, SPOILERS AHEAD:
The script tells of the space jockeys traveling from planet to planet and terraforming them. The process is essentially transforming a planet where living beings can exist.
The aliens are used by the space jockeys (known as “Growers” in the script) in their terraforming process as some sort of biological tools. They usually don’t develop into the creatures that we know, but do so during the latest effort.
The space jockeys are holding two human slave farmers captive. They are named Fin and Karik and are forced (via mind control) to engage in sexual activity. The twist: they’re both male (Churches be warned).
The idea behind the man-on-man action is apparently that the growers want their human slaves to breed. They have no idea about human genders (You think they would have studied) as they are a single sex race and so things get a little confused.
The signature alien won’t appear until the latter half of the film when it fully develops.
There will be a spaceship crew, consisting of a black female named Oliver, similar to Vasquez (Jenette Goldstein) from “Aliens.” And another female crew member named Truks, who Gemma Arterton (of Clash of the Titans) is rumored to play.
Ridley Scott has met with Lance Henriksen (Aliens’ Bishop) to appear in the film.
The editor calls the film a hard science fiction, part psychological drama.
There you have it, a special glimpse into what will be coming (in 3D) to screens by the end of 2011 or 2012. Yet, with the film’s production currently on an indefinite hold, thanks to budget issues between Scott and 20th Century Fox, will we see this before it’s too late?
What do you think about what ‘Alien’ has is store? Good? Bad? Full of more crap then Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem? Let’s hear what you have to say.
