The movie 'Prometheus' could have been: early script leaks online

prometheus lead

Earlier this week, a fan site published an early draft of a script for Prometheus, revealing plot points and alien creatures that never appeared in Ridley Scott's final version. Titled Alien: Engineers, the script was penned by Jon Spaihts before Lost creator Damon Lindelof eventually took over, and includes new plot twists involving alien parasites and even Facehuggers.

On Sunday, Spaihts confirmed via Twitter that the script is indeed "authentic," and later told Wired that he wasn't upset about the leak, describing it as a testament to Ridley Scott fandom. "The interest in the script speaks, more than anything, to their love of the film and the Alien universe," Spaihts explained. "It’s really just an aspect of their fandom for the larger universe and owes much more to Ridley Scott than to me."
