Report: 'Alien' Movie Prequel Features Slaves Forced into Gay Sex

Prequel

Those of you who are fans of the classic 1979 Ridley Scott film Alien fans may find this report concerning the planned prequel to the film somewhat interesting.

The film site JoBlo reports that 20th Century FOX forced the website What's Playing to remove spoiler details of a script from a write-up it had done on the prequel. They write

I guess we'll find out if it's true if Fox tells US to take it down? Here are the highlights from the piece:

The script (by John Spaihts and recently rewritten by Damon Lindelof) tells of the space jockeys traveling from planet to planet and terraforming them. The space jockeys are holding captive of two human slave farmers named Fin and Karik and force them (via mind control) to engage in sexual activity. (The twist: they're both male).

There will be a black Vasquez-esque spaceship crew member named Oliver. Gemma Anterton was offered to play a female crew member named Truks.

The aliens are used by the space jockeys (known as "Growers" in the script) in their terraforming processes as some sort of biological tools. The signature alien won't appear until the latter half of the film when it fully develops into it (this hints that we'll be seeing different and new forms of aliens).

The editor calls the film a hard science fiction part psychological drama.

Ridley has met with Lance Henriksen to appear in the film.

So yes, the terraforming thing sounds like a legitimate plot point, but the way the gay slave sex is framed is something out of a black comedy. The Growers don't understand the concept of human gender apparently, so they try to make the two humans mate and reproduce even though they're both male. 

They also provide a screenshot of the What's Playing story before it was removed.

  1. I don't think the script for this will be recognizable by the time shooting actually starts, if it starts.

    I personally have mixed feelings about the project. I loved the first three Alien films - each for different reasons of course, since they're so fundamentally different from one another - and I'd be sorry if the franchise ended with a terrible crossover movie. But I love that inherent mystery of the space jockey and the eggs in Alien. You don't know how long the ship was there for, or what space jockeys were doing with the eggs. It's possibly the creepiest sequence in science fiction.

  2. Weird. Interesting. Probably fake.

    The piece is attributed to "London Insider" ... LOL! And he describes the first Alien movie as "action-centric" and says this will differ because it focuses on characters. So he clearly doesn't know dick about the Alien movies.

  3. Fox can't force people to remove summaries of their plots, though they might sue under defamation laws, so I suspect they are farming for hits on the site by claiming that it's under some sort of legal risk. That said, it would seem like speculation about the plot and no more.

  4. That is kind of a funny twist - imagine a gay man mind controlled into licking the female sex organ.

    Imagine the faces they would make.

    One has to assume the seen will show a lot of screaming and clenching of buttocks. Much like I clench mine. Not really a fan of such things.

  5. "The script (by John Spaihts and recently rewritten by Damon Lindelof)"

    FAIL. Lindelof (and Carlton Cuse) fucked up the last two seasons of LOST so badly they shouldn't be allowed anywhere near a script.

  6. This is either going to be played for the ick factor ("gay sex is gross!") or for laughs ("gay sex is ridiculous!"), and it really sounds offensive.

    Could GLAAD possibly stop handing out awards for ten minutes and actually be pro-active this time to make sure this doesn't turn out to be what it sounds like?

    I like the "Aliens" movies. I don't want to have to cringe in the theater with yet another "omigod, gay is creepy" plot, like the X-Files movie a few years ago, or yet another "gay sex! Har har har" plot like zillions of stupid comedies (see Vince Vaughn, etc.).

  7. this sounds pretty ridiculous and doesn't seem to fit in with the story of the previous alien films. Still, it is a pretty brief summary, so I'll hold judgement until the final draft is done and complete story is clear.

    And the "what's the most humiliating thing we can do to straight men, make them have gay sex against their will" will not get shot. Not is it offensive, but It sounds like a scene from the porn spoof version where they end up liking it.

    It's actually kind of sad that instead of something new, there is this need to rehash things just for the supposed branding. Aliens 4 anyone? Blech.

  8. demonic possession "alien mind control" leads to humiliating gay sex

    WOW, how can we do the worse dark ages bs for the so-called modern world? sci-fi the homophobia up

  9. WHO GIVES A FUCK? You're reading to hard into a movie that wont even last long in theaters. I would be humiliated if I was forced into licking a pussy. ug who cares! Stop creating drama when there really isn't anything to get upset about.

  10. Honestly this sounds more like "men can't reproduce and the aliens are stupid" than "gay sex is gross, or gay sex is funny." All depends on how it is done on screen.

  11. really joe?

    It fails the logic test

    aliens that use biological tech to teraform planets having no concept of sexuality divergent from themselves is laughable

    national geographics did an interesting take on teraforming mars with our inorganic tech and at best it would take 1,000 years and only get mars to a light gravity, poisonous (high CO2) atmosphere requiring gas masks outside of protective domes

    so this movie wishes people to believe that hyper intelligence aliens (would require hyper intelligence) who teraform planets in under 1,000 yrs using organic technology to have no concept of sexuality beyond their hermaphroditism

    hell, on earth we are aware of hermaphrodites, asexual cell reproduction, bisexuality, etc

    yeah its just a movie but sounds like an utterly crap movie with a bad view of homosexuality

    aliens so dumb would never have gotten off their own homeworld let alone develop a tech to travel the stars and use biological tech to teraform planets in a reasonable amount of time

    Laughable and the movies supposed take on homosexuality is offensive

  12. If you think of the Aliens as drippy lube dispensers, the whole thing starts to make sense...

  13. mstrozfckslv, did you really just put that much thought into something that some hoser on the internet made up? :)

    BTW, did you used to be jimmyboyo?

  14. Eh, I prefer predator.

  15. I agree with MSTROZFCKSLV. If you're calling something "hard science fiction," introducing an advanced alien race that moves from planet to planet remaking them to suit their needs and then telling the audience these beings can't tell the difference between a pee-pee and a hoo-hoo is ridiculous. The only way it would begin to make sense if it were for the amusement of the "Space Jockeys," and the movie were called Aliens Vs. Gay-For-Pays.

  16. crispy

    :-P actually i didn't put that much thought into it. Took less than 30 seconds to see the glaring plot hole

    Posted by: mstrozfckslv@yahoo.com | Oct 21, 2010 5:29:14 PM


  17. Oh side note......per scientists (not just sci-fi authors but actual scientists)

    terraforming would be considered a level 4 civilization

    modern real world humanity is currently at level 2 civilization. Any alien species capable of terraforming planets would rank as virtual gods compared to us just as we would rank as virtual gods to stone age humanity /level 0 pre level 1 civilization

  18. Sounds like a leak of a fake plot point to keep people guessing. Terraforming aliens sounds possibly valid, but forcing a pair of straight men to engage in sex, not so much. It sounds more like a lame idea someone came up with to throw those with a interest in disseminating spoilers off the trail. Now if it's two guys in a terrible situation who turn to each other for support and that leads to something, then I'm for it, just so long as it's not played for a joke or any ick factor. Sex wasn't a part of the original, apart from showing Ripley in her undies (I remember the straight guys in the audience reaction to that)so I don't think it'll be a big part of this one either.

  19. The information is accurate. If you google "Alien Harvest", you can see a early script prior to lindelof coming on board. Of course, many things change by the time a movie films. It was actually much more than slave sex as the two men appear to fall in love during the movie. Not to mention, the Gemma Atherton role is of a lesbian who has a younger female lover. I will say, reading the early version, it was very homoerotic and not typical of these movies. It's risky but kudos if they go this route as it's not a suspsene script but very science fiction in nature.

  20. Also, just to clear up the silly comments I read prior, it's actually not offensive. If you haven't even read the script, let's not bring that good old GLAAD into the equation because they are so helpful. In the script, after the sex, the men discuss what happened and they had been both with men before and develop a relationship of sorts. Yes, it begins in the unfortunate way but they grow very close during the script. Who knows if this will ever see the light of day. I found it actually interesting and pretty bold for a movie as the two characters figure prominently in the script and there is a sort of love that grows between the men. They continue the sexual relationship long after the manipulation of their minds. I sometimes hate reading talkback on these sites because they are so negative about things that are not at all negative because people always have to find something to be negative about. I think, if this went to production, it would be pretty groundbreaking in regards to gay characters as both men are strong, aggressive, loving and fight aliens during the script. You don't see that often.

  21. I am from a Level 5 civilization. We have intercourse by firing laser beams at our mate's anal glands. We also terraform.

  22. Sounds like a script for fanfiction, now wheres the Predator's!?

  23. There are so many ways they could do this
    without the gay sex... And how the fuck would
    the growers be so dumb anyway? It doesn't make any sense. I just don't get it. If it's an attempt at being "disturbing" it is... But for all the wrong reasons. It's not scary disturbing. It's "what the fuck was the guy who wrote this thinking?" disturbing.

    Posted by: MENTD | Nov 5, 2010 7:55:06 PM


  24. I don't even like the idea of the two human slaves... Isn't it just TOO convenient?
    Like out of the WHOLE fucking galaxy and
    all the mystery of the Space Jockeys you want me to buy that humans were basically involved from the get go? Stupid. Also stupid, as someone else pointed out, that the Jockeys wouldn't know what a pp and a hoo hoo is. In Alien they were not like
    a Star Trek type civilization that had
    tons of fleets everywhere in the galaxy.
    There was MYSTERY to the galaxy in Alien.
    Lurking unknown. Not "oh yeah we've been
    everywhere and while we were waaay out in the middle of space, two of our humans were captured." - That makes no sense and does not fit in with the Alien universe.
    If they're that advanced they shouldn't even have to force sex - they could just clone us.
    It makes NO FUCKING SENSE AT ALL.
    The only thing keeping me from thinking this is a joke and/or ploy to keep people away from the REAL plot is that if this is true, it's a huge hoax. The 1st draft script from Spaights has been around for a long time now. The hoax would have to have contained it's self all this time, plus for the duration of filming. This is why I think it's actually serious.
    However, this is RIDLEY SCOTT.
    The last sci-fi he did was BLADE RUNNER.
    Blade Runner and Alien are VERY similar in tone, period, technology, etc.
    And if the Alien prequels are going to be as "epic" as everyone is saying with tons of "drama", the movie could very well end up being a mish of Blade Runner and Alien.
    Two of my most favorite movies of all time.

  25. Too bad this didn't happen, might have made the unmitigated disaster that was Prometheus into something slightly more watchable.

    Although mind-controlled gay sex isn't a plus to everything. Season 4 of Torchwood comes to mind. (Also listed as another unmitigated disaster.
