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."
