Director Ridley Scott recently spoke with The Independent and revealed new information on his Untitled Alien Prequel, which will be shot in 3D. Here's an excerpt from the site's article:

"The film will be really tough, really nasty," he notes. "It's the dark side of the moon. We are talking about gods and engineers. Engineers of space. And were the aliens designed as a form of biological warfare? Or biology that would go in and clean up a planet?"
