Prometheus rumors continue to swirl: How will aliens factor into Ridley Scott's new film?

02.24.2011

Been eating crow since the last time I posted about Ridley Scott's forthcoming sci-fi tale PROMETHEUS. I really thought the literal connection to the original ALIEN film was bullshit and borne out of the worse sort of rumor-mongering on the net. But in over the course of a month following new accounts, I've been proven completely wrong! Just a couple of weeks ago, the recently cast Michael Fassbender confirmed that the new film would be occurring within the same universe as the old films - telling MTV, "it's definitely in keeping with the old ones" - rendering the whole "it's not a prequel" mantra somewhat moot.

Today, a new rumor takes that one step further.

According to Bleeding Cool, sources close to the site are revealing just exactly how the aliens from the original film are being incorporated into PROMETHEUS.

"Quite simply: it has the Alien aliens in it. The catch, though, is that you might not recognise them – at least, not at first.

Remember how the alien took on canine qualities after gestating in a dog? You may even suppose that the first film’s alien was so recognisably humanoid because it had grown in a human. The same applies here: generation by generation, the creature mutates. As Prometheus begins, the xenomorph is not too recognisable. Sure, it has that alien DNA that Scott and Fassbender teasingly referred to, but it’s missing… well, it’s missing human DNA. Or dog DNA.

All you have to do is imagine how it might look if it were to mix DNA with another alien species… and I think we’re starting to work it all out."


So despite all the initial reports saying that the film is not a prequel, it turns out that it actually kind of is. Should that even matter, though?

Read the rest of Bleeding Cool's report RIGHT HERE.
Extra Tidbit: Following the logic of this rumor, will the generation of xenomorphs depicted in PROMETHEUS be then based on the Space Jockey? 'Cause them be some BIG motherf*ckers...
