And I’m a poet and you didn’t know it.

Anyhoo Ridley Scott talked to MTV about the plot of his upcoming Prequel to Alien, it is part of a interview that can be found Right here!(Spoilers)

The interview is really excellent and covers some of what goes on behind the scenes in the preperation of a script so if you’re a writer like me it’s excellent.

After the break I’ll post a small SPOILER QUOTE from the article…you have been warned there’s SPOILERS after the break.

From the MTV Article:

Scott: It’s set in 2085, about 30 years before Sigourney [Weaver’s character Ellen Ripley]. It’s fundamentally about going out to find out ‘Who the hell was that Space Jockey?’ The guy who was sitting in the chair in the alien vehicle — there was a giant fellow sitting in a seat on what looked to be either a piece of technology or an astronomer’s chair. Remember that?

MTV: Of course.

Scott: And our man [Tom Skerritt as Captain Dallas] climbs up and says “There’s been an explosion in his chest from the inside out — what was that?” I’m basically explaining who that Space Jockey — we call him the Space Jockey — I’m explaining who the space jockeys were.

I’m really looking forward to this one.
