H.R. Giger Working On Alien Prequel?

Posted by Grey Sunday, December 19, 2010

Ridley Scott's Alien prequel is shaping up to one of the most anticipated Sci-Fi prequels around.

Just when everyone thought that Alien, the extraterrestrial creature that first appeared in 1979's seminal Sci-Fi classic, Alien, has officially jumped the shark after being the subject of not one, but two humiliating participation in the Alien vs. Predator crossover film series.

In a positive development, H.R. Giger’s wife, Carmen Scheifele, has indicated in an interview with Swiss television, that the renowned painter and designer who created the iconic look of Alien, is now on board to work on Ridley Scott's Alien prequel, which reportedly will be in 3-D and may consist of two films.

The video interview can be found here and the official report of the news (in German, though), here.

The main excerpts from the article.

HR Giger, Schöpfer der “Alien”-Figur für den 1979 entstandenen Film von Ridley Scott, wird erneut mit dem Regisseur zusammenarbeiten. Dies bestätigte die Frau des Schweizer Künstlers, Carmen Scheifele, in der Sendung “glanz & gloria” des Schweizer Fernsehens. Ihr Mann sei “on board”, also dabei, sagte Scheifele. Es werde sicher einen 3D-Film geben, wahrscheinlich aber zwei. Geplant sei ein Prequel, das die Geschichte vor dem ersten Alien-Film erzählt.

Thanks to Babelfish, here's the text in direct English translation.
