The first drafts of the screenplays were written by newcomer Jon Spaihts; [[Damon Lindelof]] is rewriting at least the script of the first prequel. [[Ridley Scott]] stated that the story will take place in 2085, approximately three decades prior to the events of the first [[Alien]] film, before the birth of Ellen Ripley. The story, which originally went through several drafts, features a female lead character and will present a "Techonologically Feasible" view on the early stages of "Near Faster-Than Light Travel". It will also focus on terraforming and Weyland Industries before its merger with Yutani Corporation. The films will explore the nature and origin of the unknown extraterrestrial race, the Space Jockeys, who only had a brief appearance in the first [[Alien]] as the Derelict Spaceship's pilot. [[File:187879 185342891505970 5777670 n.jpg|thumb]]Scott stated that the films would be about "Gods"and [...] engineers of space" and hinted at the possibility that the Xenomorph (Alien) was designed either as a Biological Weapon or as means to "Clean up" planets.

Scott also announced that the original Zeta II Reticuli planetary system will be part of the prequel story, a system famous in reality for being the system home to the alleged alien race "The Greys". Roger Christian art director on the first [[Alien]], speculated that the films will be shot in 3-D, which was eventually corfirmed by [[Ridley Scott]]. Since 3-D films need high lighting levels on set, the hallmark atmosphere of the [[Alien]] films with darkness and shadows will be added in post-production through grading processes, while the 3-D equipment will be based on post-Avatar technology. Production design has commenced, and Arthur Max is heading a small Pinewood Studios art department, whose task is to deconstruct the first [[Alien]] and reverse-design the prequels from the original art and visuals. The Alien itself will be reenvisioned as a progenitor of the received form of the Xenomorph, and Scott reported that he had planned to contact H.R Giger for possible artistic collaboration. Despite rumors that the movie would be released under the title of "Paradise", these rumors were later debunked by [[20th Century Fox]] & Devin Faraci, formerly of CHUD.com. It hasn't yet been hinted if the Predator race itself will be featured, it is unlikely that they'll be featured fully, although a cameo from their race is more than possible. On Friday, December 23, 2011, The first trailer was released for the film.
