Has Alien Prequel Found Its Leading Lady??

Looks like this one's moving along right into production!

We reported a few months back that director Ridley Scott was returning to the Alien franchise to work on a prequel to his smash horror film, and now it looks as though he may have found his leading lady!

Prince of Persia actress Gemma Arterton has revealed that the director has approached her for a potential role in the film!

She reveals:

"The honest truth is that Ridley Scott has approached me to meet with him about something in the next few weeks. He saw Alice Creed and loved it. Maybe I’ll be playing an alien! I wouldn’t mind that, actually. I like dressing up. That’s why I became an actor in the first place."

LOLs! She sounds adorable!

But we have a feeling gurlfriend is going to be stepping into Sigourney Weaver's old shoes! The film just wouldn't be the same without a Ripley-esque heroine showing those alien fuckers what's what!

What do U think?? Are U excited for a prequel to Alien??

    The prequel will probably be about what happened to that space colony that they encountered in the first movie.

    I have a girl crush on Gemma. Have been following her career for a while (watch The Disappearance of Alice Creed - it's brilliant) and am so happy for the doors that are opening for her.

    She deserves them all. Very talented, beautiful and very humble.

    I like Ridley Scott, but I truely believe he's making a mistake with this choice. Why not choose Neve Campbell??? Anyone ever watch her in Scream? Not only does she have the athletic ability and looks for the role, but has anyone ever seen her eyes? She can show fear at the perfect moment and sadness at another. She just has the look he needs for an Alien movie. Neve Campbell would have been a much better choice!!!
