Ridley Scott Reveals Guy Pearce's Role In PROMETHEUS; Comments On Its Connection To ALIEN
The director comments on how his upcoming sci-fi epic Prometheus is connected to his classic movie Alien, while also revealing Guy Pearce's role in the film.
When the first Alien movie and Blade Runner were made, I thought that in the near future the world will be owned by large companies. This is why we have the Tyrell Corporation in Blade Runner, and Weyland-Yutani in Alien. They sent the Nostromo spaceship.
The Prometheus is owned by an entrepreneur called Peter Weyland, and is played by Guy Pearce. That’s the connection between the two films, and nothing more. Prometheus is a new film, a new world, and is full of new ideas. And of course new monsters as well.
Wait, what? Scott contradicted himself here. We have 100% confirmation that the Alien aliens and the Space Jockey will appear, from him and sources, a glimpse in the trailer and a leaked mask of the Space Jockey. The most likely option is Scott is lying about Peter Weyland being the only connection between the two films, or has forgotten that he debunked that a while ago. Still, share your thoughts below in the usual place.
Starring Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron and Idris Elba, Prometheus is set to hit theaters June 8th, later this year.
