Ridley Scott Explains How Prometheus Connects To Alien

fb share tweet share

Director Ridley Scott is currently hard at work on his Alien prequel Prometheus, and recently stepped up to offer a few more details on what the movie’s about. As it turns out, the name’s not just a catchy title but a fairly obvious reference to Greek mythology.

Like that same named mythological character Ridley explains that the whole thing is a metaphor and that it’s a movie about a higher being challenging the gods for fire, when the gods don’t want him to have it. There’s been a lot of talk that the Aliens themselves may be some sort of genetically engineered creation, and I suspect that’s going to play into this.

Ridley also talks about how this new movie fits together with Alien. Previous statements from him have indicated that this is a very different kind of movie, with not a lot in common with the other Alien franchise films. But he does confirm that in the last eight minutes of Prometheus the story turns into “a pretty good DNA of the ‘Alien’ one.” It’ll all fit together, eventually.
