Artist HR Giger returns for Alien prequels


All I can say is HALLELUJAH!!!!

This is in-part what The Guardian had to say about this awesome news...

In a video interview for Swiss television, the painter's wife Carmen Scheifele said her husband was "on board" for the prequel, which she said might be one of two films, both set prior to Scott's Alien.
Speaking in Swiss German, Scheifele said: "We went to London to discuss the project and then did not hear anything back. We thought it wasn't happening, but two days ago we got the call to say it was OK."
Giger designed the famously phallic aliens, often known as xenomorphs, for Alien, and although his services were not required for James Cameron's 1986 sequel, Aliens, his nightmarish designs have played a part in all versions of the monstrous creature, right up to 2007's poorly received mashup sequel-of-sorts, Aliens vs Predator: Requiem.
