Much of the recent news (read: rumors) about three-time Oscar-nominated director Ridley Scott's as-yet-untitled prequel to Alien has centered around casting, but the Australian entertainment site What's Playing may have uncovered a much bigger scoop. The site recently claimed to have come across a draft of the script for the movie and published several interesting plot details before removing the information "at the request of the studio." Fortunately, WorstPreviews managed to copy the script scoops from the What's Playing article before they were taken down and they have published them on their own site.
Some of the plot details fall in line with what Scott himself has previously revealed about the prequel—such as exploring the identity of the dead "Space Jockey" glimpsed in Alien and the concept of terraforming planets—while others are a bit... out there. The scoops also contain a couple possible casting choices, including the return of at least one actor from the previous movies. But, don't take our word for it, read the plot details for yourself (with a grain of salt, of course). what did the supposedly leaked script reveal about the prequel? >> Posted 10.25.10 by BrentJS
