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!
"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??
