Ridley Scott's Alien prequel in 3D

Ridley Scott is apparently planning to make his new Alien prequel in 3D.
Star Wars and Alien art director Roger Christian told movie blog Shadowlocked.com: "Ridley's doing the next Alien in 3D."
He suggested the film could pave the way for more Alien movies, revealing: "Ridley told me some of his ideas, he has a very clear understanding of where this should go - they kind of stopped dead one of the greatest horror franchises there's ever been, and it had legs to go on."
He added: "So I'm hoping he'll revive another three. The world certainly wants it, and the fans want it - everybody."
Christian hopes to be involved with the new movie.
He said: "[Ridley and I] had a chat to catch up, and he was going on about how much I'd 'got it' on the first one. I guess that's because of Star Wars, where I had a trained crew with me... and we learnt how to do it. It's not a technique that's easy to do - it's something I'd learnt. So [Ridley] kept saying how I was the one responsible, really.
"I always made only one promise to myself. I said if ever I went back to designing, the only film I would ever want to design is Alien, if Ridley re-did it.
"I could never understand why they didn't pull him back in."
