More Details from Scott on ALIEN Prequel!

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.

  1. actually, people have been speculating on what the “space jockey” was since the movie’s release.
    i even remember an old ALIENS comic book that included aliens of that character’s species fighting the bad-guy aliens.
