Pandorum Promises Alien-esque Horror (and a Bloody, Naked Cam Gigandet)

In an interview with MTV, Pandorum producer Paul W.S. Anderson addressed comparisons between his upcoming deep-space horror flick and the granddaddy of them all, Alien.
It's a very scary movie set in space and there are creatures in it. It introduces an unexpected terror to the audience. Any buzz floating around that this is a bit like Alien, I take as a huge compliment.
It is not just "some Alien knock-off" though, he insists. For one thing, the monsters, at least from what we have seen of them in the trailers, are a bit more Nosferatu. Then there's that whole weird skin-peeling thing. And as far as plot is concerned, an element of mystery is added with the missing crew.
On top of all that though, he reveals that there is a nude scene with Twilight star Cam Gigandet:
For fans of Twilight, there's a scene where Cam's completely naked. He's covered in blood, of course. There's more Cam nudity in this than there is in Twilight! There's this great scene where Dennis finds Cam and he's naked and covered in blood and Dennis covers him up and he says to Cam, "Is that your blood, Corporal?" and Cam says, "Some of it," and of course the question is, "Whose blood is it?"
Given what happens to his character James at the end of Twilight, it seems rather unlikely that Twilight fans will be put off from seeing Cam that way, no matter whose blood it is or how much there is of it.
