Filmmaker Ridley Scott ('Alien') has finally spouted details galore over the much hush-hushed topic of where his new sci-fi thriller 'Prometheus' lies in relation to the 'Alien' universe. Let me warn you right now that if you are one of these "Don't wanna know anything before the event" kinda people then I wouldn't bother reading on. Scotts' info isn't particularly spoilerish but still revealing enough beyond what we've heard in recent months. The unveiling of said details came courtesy of an interview with Speakeasy. 'Prometheus' stars Michael Fassbender ('X-Men: First Class'), Noomi Rapace ('The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo'), Charlize Theron (below), Idris Elba ('The Losers'), Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Logan Marshall-Green, Rafe Spall ('Shaun of the Dead') and Guy Pearce ('The Hurt Locker'). Check out Ridley's responses below.

¨C The central metaphor of ¡°Prometheus¡± is about a ¡°higher being¡± (Scott¡¯s words) who challenges the gods, and the gods don¡¯t want to give him fire. ¡°Fire is our first form of technology,¡± Scott says, and so by taking fire, the higher being is punished ¡°in perpetuity in a horrible fashion.¡± Much like the story of the mythological god, Prometheus, who stole fire from Zeus and for his actions was bound to a rock with an eagle eternally devouring his liver. (Let¡¯s hope things turn out differently for our higher being¡­)

¨C Scott is especially excited about the story of ¡°Prometheus¡± ¡ª you can hear the enthusiasm in his voice when he discusses the film. The screenplay was written by Damon Lindelof and Jon Spaihts. ¡°I think the reason why I haven¡¯t attempted science fiction in a number of years is because I haven¡¯t really come across a script that I really liked,¡± Scott says. ¡°This developed and came out extremely well.¡±

¨C The last eight minutes of the ¡°Prometheus¡± story evolve into ¡°a pretty good DNA of the ¡®Alien¡¯ one.¡±

¨C We confirmed with 20th Century Fox that Sigourney Weaver, star of the first four ¡°Alien¡± films, doesn¡¯t make a cameo in ¡°Prometheus.¡± Too bad, Ripley fans.

¨C Regarding the use of 3-D and CGI, Scott says he has ¡°completely taken off into this cyberworld¡± and called working on¡±Prometheus¡± ¡°the best time I¡¯ve had in a number of years making a movie.¡±

¨C Although Scott embraced ¡°all the tricks, the toys¡± of computer-generated imagery and 3-D, he says, ¡°I¡¯m a great believer in filming the real thing if you can and so I did a lot of building the real thing.¡± He used the ¡°007¡å stage (more commonly known as the ¡°Bond¡± stage) at Pinewood Studios in the U.K., one of the biggest stages in Europe at about 59,000 square feet. He used other stages at Pinewood too.
