Damon Lindelof, co-creator of “LOST” recently had this to say about his work on “Prometheus”:
“As to its origins it started as an Alien prequel. That is what everybody wanted it to be. Obviously Ridley Scott has not made a science fiction movie in twenty five years since Blade Runner so the idea that he is returning to this genre is huge ”
Examining the current state of the ALIEN franchise, Lindelof goes on to say:
“I’ve always felt really good prequels should be original movies. And the sequel to those prequels should not be the movie that already exists.”
Time will tell, however reading between the lines it sounds to us like this film will greatly exceed our expectations for what we want from a prequel to one of the greatest science fiction horror films of all time.
