And the 'Prometheus' plot thickens. Ridley Scott's first sci-fi flick in three decades may be loosely tied to the 'Alien' franchise, but the director wants you to get one thing clear: There will not, under any circumstances, be xenomorphs (the creature from the 'Alien' movies) in 'Prometheus.' In an interview with Filmophilia, Scott revealed that his upcoming movie will not feature the famous extra-terrestrials Sigourney Weaver fought off for years.

"No. Absolutely not. They squeezed it dry," admits Scott. "[The xenomorph] did very well. He survived, he's now in Disneyland in Orlando, and no way am I going back there. How did he end up in Disneyland? I saw him in Disneyland, Jesus Christ!"

In addition to 'Promtheus,' Ridley also discussed why he hasn't gone back to the science fiction in almost 30 years.

I think one of the reasons why I've never gone back to science-fiction, even though I've often noodled around, thought about it, looked for story, looked for material, is that there's a nice purity to the original Alien. It's fairly pure. And ['Prometheus'] does actually raise all kinds of other questions, because if someone could, a being, could be as monstrously clever to create something like we experienced in the very first one -- I always figured it's a weapon, and I always figured that [the ship in the first 'Alien'] was a carrier of weapons. Therefore, who is that, inside that suit? That wasn't a skeleton, that was a suit. And if you open up the suit, what do you get inside it? And why were they going, where were they going?

You can check out the entire interview over on Filmophilia. 'Prometheus,' which stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce and Idris Elba, hits theaters June 8, 2012.
