“It is 1849 in Jamestown California and the Gold rush is in effect. The local miners are eager to search everyday hoping to come out on top with the best and most gold from the hills and valleys.

| In an interview with AICN, Ridley Scott discussed the upcoming Alien prequels he’s at work on. The director says he’s not stressed about the post-conversion process (which has been utilized on Clash of the Titans). “What’s happened is the scientists have gone in the room…because it is complex. The beam-splitter, the this and the that and blah, blah, blah…it all sounds very complex,” he says. “I always [camera] operate. I operated entirely on Alien, for instance. Because I’m an operator I think lenses. If you think lenses then the crossover to 3D honestly is nothing. I was told it was going to slow us down…it didn’t slow [Michael] Bay down. Bay is moving like lightning. Once he realized, ‘Oh, Jesus…there’s no difference, really. Except I’m adding dimension. They say, ‘Aren’t you worried about how it’s going to cut?’ No, because when I’m planning I think in 3D anyway. Even when I’m storyboarding the scene is already thought of in dimension. ‘When he comes in there, I’ve got a deep two-shot. Should I cover that in singles or not? Will I need a reversal?’ You’re already thinking in 3D.”
