Ridley Scott Confirms Alien Connection in Prometheus


By now it’s pretty well known that Ridley Scott’s Prometheus will be a prequel to Alien. We also are pretty sure about the film’s out-of-this world crazy plot. What isn’t confirmed yet is exactly how the movie will tie into Alien. It’s using a unique cast with no one from the original movie appearing, so how exactly it’ll transfer its story to the 1979 movie isn’t really known.

Yesterday, Ridley Scott confirmed to the Wall Street Journal that he would be directing Blade Runner 2. Now, he discusses with them how Prometheus becomes Alien:

The last eight minutes of the “Prometheus” story evolve into “a pretty good DNA of the ‘Alien’ one.”

Our guess? Well, it’s been rumored that the Space Jockey’s ship makes an appearance in the movie. The last eight minutes will likely see it crashing into the planet where it’s found in the beginning of Alien.
