Ok, did a search and didn't see it mentioned, so...
I suppose it's time to kick off a thread about this, since there's a fair amount of info out there on AICN and other sites.
Here's what we know so far:
- It's not exactly a prequel, but it takes place in the same universe as Alien.
- The Aliens are in it, we think.
- Part of it is being shot in the ruins of an ancient Scottish castle.
- Other sets look more traditionally Giger-esque.
- Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) has been cast as the lead.
- Charlize Theron (!) is also onboard.
- The "space jockey" pic circulating from the AvP site is an April Fool's joke
Sounds cool to me
