New leaked Alien prequel plot details feature far more gay sex than anticipated

10.21.2010

If I read these new plot details casually in a link someone sent to me claiming it was "inside info," I might have scoffed at it. But when Fox steps in to remove said details, it might be worth as second look.

The original story ran on What's Playing, and here's a screenshot of it before Fox forced the info be taken down. If true, it contains a decent amount of spoilers from the film, so read on with caution. I guess we'll find out if it's true if Fox tells US to take it down? Here are the highlights from the piece:

The script (by John Spaihts and recently rewritten by Damon Lindelof) tells of the space jockeys traveling from planet to planet and terraforming them. The space jockeys are holding captive of two human slave farmers named Fin and Karik and force them (via mind control) to engage in sexual activity. (The twist: they're both male).

There will be a black Vasquez-esque spaceship crew member named Oliver. Gemma Anterton was offered to play a female crew member named Truks.

The aliens are used by the space jockeys (known as "Growers" in the script) in their terraforming processes as some sort of biological tools. The signature alien won't appear until the latter half of the film when it fully develops into it (this hints that we'll be seeing different and new forms of aliens).

The editor calls the film a hard science fiction part psychological drama.

Ridley has met with Lance Henriksen to appear in the film.

So yes, the terraforming thing sounds like a legitimate plot point, but the way the gay slave sex is framed is something out of a black comedy. The Growers don't understand the concept of human gender apparently, so they try to make the two humans mate and reproduce even though they're both male. The human crew that finds all this going on is described as "sex starved" in the article, so maybe the Growers get their wish in the end.

What do you make of all this? Would this be a good direction for the prequel to take?

Extra Tidbit: I'm all for a "dark psychological" sci-fi movie, but this sounds a bit wacky.
