Ridley Scott On PROMETHEUS Rating And Returning To The ALIEN UNIVERSE

The director discusses whether or not his upcoming horror/science fiction epic, Prometheus, will be rated R. He also comments on his desire to revisit the Alien universe and how the back story for the Space Jockey influenced him to return.



Speaking with Empire, Sir Ridley Scott talks about his next project Prometheus, a prequel to his science fiction classic Alien. Scott discusses the possible rating for Prometheus, suggesting that it will be R rated and that it'll be more "stressful" than gory. He also says that the back story for The Space Jockey was one of the factors in his wanting to return to the Alien universe.

On The Possible Rating For Prometheus...
“The question is, do you go for the PG-13, [which] financially makes quite a difference, or do you go for what it should be, which is R? Essentially, it’s kinda R. It’s not just about the blood, it’s about ideas that are very stressful. I’m not an idiot, but I’ll do everything I can to get the most aggressive film I can.”




On His Interest In Returning To The Alien Universe...
“[I've wanted to revisit the 'Alien' universe for] years! Years, years, years. I always wondered when they did ['Aliens'] 2,3 and 4 why they hadn’t touched upon that, instead of evolving into some other fantastic story. They missed the biggest question of them all: who’s the big guy [the Space Jockey]? And where were they going? And with what? Why that cargo? There’s all kinds of questions.”
