Ridley Scott Talks Alien Prequel

Empire got to have an exclusive chat with Ridley Scott about the Alien prequel, he revealed the story will take place thirty years prior to the original telling Empire:
“It’s a brand new box of tricks,” said Ridley. “We know what the road map is, and the screenplay is now being put on paper. The prequel will be a while ago. It’s very difficult to put a year on Alien, but [for example] if Alien was towards the end of this century, then the prequel story will take place thirty years prior.”

“I never thought I’d look forward to a sequel,” said Ridley. “But a prequel is kind of interesting. I’m looking forward to doing that.”
