Rumours regarding upcoming Ridley Scott movie, Prometheus, have been rife for quite some time, heading in all directions imaginable.
First, in an interview with the BBC, the director of the movie Ridley Scott suggested the movie would be about “gods and engineers” and the aliens hinted that the aliens were in fact biological weapons sent to clean up space.
However, when the fans revolted at the very notion of that idea it was then announced in Jan 2011 that Prometheus wouldn’t be an Alien prequel at all.
Then, in an interview with MTV in Feb 2011, one of the principle actors on the movie, Michael Fassbender, announced that Promethus is absolutely connected to Alien.
Exhausting stuff just for us to know what the hell the movie is actually about, but now it seems Fassbender’s words were backed up some by reports from on set at Pinewood Studios that the Alien creatures have been spotted!
The news source also provided a call sheet from the shoot at Pinewood, with some names who are already known to be attached to the movie and some who are not.
Also, it seems Benedict Wong (from the Danny Boyle movie Sunshine and the fantastical UK Tv Series 15 Stories High) confirmed his involvement via Twitter on 22nd March with: “prometheus……..boom!” . Also, by all accounts Emun Elliot’s agent has also confirmed his involvement in the movie.
Anyway, the eagle-eyed source at the movie set who spotted the aliens stated the following:
Though security on the set is very tight with the good weather, dock doors have been open and cast and crew have been enjoying lunch outdoors. I can confirm seeing 3 aliens having lunch. Not the whole costume but blueish costumes and the unmistakable heads hanging around their shoulders.
The alien heads were the same shape but no markings, only a plane bronze colour. As for the suits black boots and shoulder pads the rest was a Chelsea blue body suit could be for SFX, all the sets around the back of the bond stage have huge green chromokey maybe that’s a clue.
I have witnessed foam cut outs of unmistakable aliens all cut in half lengh ways so they could be in the floor walls etc and very much from the original film.
I managed to enter the bond stage one weekend when no filming was sheduled all I can say is there is a very very long tunnel that leads to an enormous structure at the back of the stage which is the same height as the stage and probably extends out another 200 ft.
All of these sets are surrounded by wood foam and scaffold so sid not see inside, I think this is were the Space Jockey set is.
If reliable, that’s some pretty interesting information. But has previously alluded, the concept of what this movie actually is has been banded back forth between no Alien prequel and definitelty Alien prequel for so long, I’m not sure what to believe anymore.
