A few more details from Ridley Scott about the Alien prequel surfaced in a recent interview from Hero Complex L.A.:

I sat thinking about the franchise, which now has died on the road somewhere way back and lying in the dust, and thought what I should do is go back… in the first Alien, when John Hurt climbed up and over the top of the rise… there was a massive giant lying in a chair. The chair was either a form of engine or some piece of technology and I always thought no one has ever asked who was the space jockey?”

I think beneath that carcass… it’s not a carcass, it’s a suit. Inside the suit is a being.

Sure, it’s not much.  But it does suggest that the so-called “space jockey” (pictured above) will be something different than what we’ve imagined for thirty years.

Studios Want Jackson to Direct THE HOBBIT!

Since Guillermo Del Toro bowed out of The Hobbit films rumors have run rampant about who will take over the job.  Now, according to Deadline New York, top brass at Warners and MGM are doing their level best to talk Peter Jackson into helming the flix.  Though some little birds have been telling us that this may just be cover for Jackson interest in returning to the franchise, after the disappointing critical and financial performance of The Lovely Bones.

Other directors currently being considered are David Yates, David Dobkin and Brett Ratner.  One of the reason for this underwhelming list is financial.  The project already has much of its gross points accounted for, making it less attractive to true A-Listers.
