Ridley Scott Speaks about Prometheus

Filmophilia conducted a rare, in-depth interview with Ridley Scott, director of Twentieth Century Fox’s sci-fi horror Prometheus, rumored to be the prequel to 1979’s Alien. Recently, Scott shed some light on the addition of the Space Jockey, and reveals the involvement of artist H.R. Giger. The official synopsis from Fox says that this revolves around the “Alien Gods”, the “Space Jockey” from the first film. Scott confirms their involvement and goes into some depth as to what we’ll see in Prometheus. “Yeah, so there you have that,” he states boldy confirming the involvement. “I was always amazed that, I mean, I’ve only done two science-fictions, but I was always amazed that no one asked who the hell the Space Jockey was. He wasn’t even called the Space Jockey. During the film they started to call it the Space Jockey. I don’t know who started that one off. I always thought it was amazing that no one ever asked who he was, and why was he there? What was all that about? I sat thinking about this for a while and thought, well, there’s a story! And the other four [films] missed it! So, here it is.”
