If you’ve been following Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, you may be familiar with the saga of the film’s plot details. Originally leaked out by a tipster to a website, Ridley Scott went on himself to somewhat confirm the crazy story line. Fox naturally panicked, as the “Ancient Aliens” inspired story may scare some people off, and released their own synopsis…which actually confirmed the rumors. You can see those previous bits right here.
Now it looks like Fox is once again confirming that the movie will deal with those story elements when they updated the film’s official Facebook page with this:
Ridley Scott, director of “Alien” and “Blade Runner,” returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.
It certainly sounds like the earlier rumor of the movie explaining that the Space Jockeys creating mankind through genetic engineering may be true.
