Gemma Arterton Might Suit Up for Ridley Scott’s ‘Alien’ Prequel If She Knows What It Is

Gemma Arterton was born the same year that Aliens was released, meaning she was -7 years old when the first Alien was brilliantly unleashed unto the world.

That’s not a slight against her (especially since she couldn’t have controlled when she was born), but it’s an interesting fact in light of her going to meet with Ridley Scott about possibly acting in his new prequel endeavor for the franchise.

The young actor told the Sunday Times, “Ridley Scott saw Alice Creed and loved it. He wants me to meet for Aliens: The Remake, or something.” Clearly, if she can figure out what the film is, she might be acting in it. [The Playlist]
