I decided to do a Alien prequel news search tonight and discovered that it's just been announced that the Alien prequel that Ridley Scott had been working on will no longer be an Alien prequel.
It seems that they will be filming the script they have but severing the contunity with the existing movies. The new movie will be called Prometheus and will be released in March 2012.
I don't know if we can expect face-huggers or chest-bursters in the new movie but I do hope we're 'going on a bug hunt'.
