PROMETHEUS Easter Egg Ties The Movie To BLADE RUNNER
Is Ridley Scott planning on a crossover between his other classic Sci-fi movie and the universe featured in Alien? It seems possible given the following Easter Egg from the U.K. steelbook release of Prometheus..
The following is a memo from Peter Weyland (Guy Pearce) in which he talks about his "mentor and long-departed competitor". No names are mentioned, but it's pretty obvious to any fan of Ridley Scott's Blade Runner that he talking about Eldon Tyrell, head of the Tyrell corporation, who were responsible for creating the Replicant's minds and memories..
This could just be a little nod to the fans of course, but it might also be something else - we know Scott is working on a sequel to Blade Runner, could he be planning on tying that universe - onscreen - into the one he has created with his Alien (kinda) prequel, Prometheus? Only time will tell, but if that was to happen, how would you guys feel about it?
