Are These ALIEN PREQUEL Space Jockey Designs? Updated: No!

We know that pre-production design work is currently being done for Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel over at England’s Pinewood Studios. We know that Scott has hinted that the film’s plot will possible involve more of the race of the dead alien that crew members of the Nostromo discovered in the original 1979 Alien and nicknamed the “Space Jockey.”

Some possible design work for those aliens have surfaced courtesy of the site Scriptflags. They don’t claim to authoritatively state that these drawings are indeed authentic, though if a take down notice arrives in my email box over the next 48 hours, we’ll probably have our answer.

In the meantime, here’s something to mull over while digesting your Thanksgiving feast today. (Click on image to enlarge.)

And for comparison, here’s the original from 1979.

Updated: Turns out these are not official pre-production sketches, but the work of artist Doug Williams for his blog Please Look At Me Neil Blomkamp. Still, interesting work, no?
