From Collider via /Film, Ridley Scott is now referring to “the two Alien prequels” in interviews. Though it doesn’t appear they’ll be shot back to back since he says “‚Äúat the moment I‚Äôm just trying to get the first one out.‚Äù So we might someday have two overlapping box sets to choose from — the All-Scott Alien Trilogy and the Top Chefs’ Alien Quadrilogy buffet. Hope this pans out as planned. I’d really like to see the franchise reclaimed and re-envisioned by the man who started it all. The bulk of the Collider interview has Scott going on record with his feelings about a controversial new technical advancement — and yes, both prequels will be shot in 3D. Achieving that depth of field means filming with more light than we’re accustomed to seeing in Alien movies, but Scott intends to dial down the dimmer switches in post-production. He says, The problem is you‚Äôll have to grade it later. You‚Äôll have to grit your teeth and light it not the way you‚Äôd like it. And then later, you‚Äôre gonna have to regrade it. Repaint it. In fact, Avatar, when you think about it, is almost a completely animated movie.
