Speaking in Sydney ahead of the looming start on his “Prometheus” sequel, “Alien : Covenant”, filmmaker Ridley Scott said he’s aiming for the movie to get nothing less than a hard R rating.
“I always remember walking down the edge in Saint Louis when we were previewing [Alien]. I couldn’t sit through the film one more time. I walked down the edge into the kitchen scene when John Hurt started to bring up his breakfast. That moment, I realized how pretty scary the film was… I felt a sense of responsibility that I had gone too far because it was extreme. I’m going to try and do that again this year, but much worse.”
The movie, starring Michael Fassbender, is targeting an October 6 release.
