Alien: Paradise Lost Will Somehow Reference Ripley


aliens-ripley-alien-queenIt’s been a busy week for the Prometheus sequel. After learning there will be more than one, we learned the first is titled Alien: Paradise Lost. And now that movie will tie into Ripley somehow.

Speaking to Empire, Ridley Scott describes the movie as:

“In a way it is Prometheus 2. It’s exactly the same story. But it was always in the works to be called that [Alien: Paradise Lost]. Is Prometheus actually taking us off course from where I’m going, which is actually backing into the first Alien… I’ve even got connections with Ripley [in this], but I’m not telling you what.”

Maybe they’ll show the Nostromo leaving Earth? How else could they reference Ripley in a sequel to a movie that’s set long before the events in the first Alien?
