In July, we reported the exciting news that Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof would be re-writing the script for Ridley Scott’s upcoming Alien prequel (or possibly prequels). Vulture is now reporting that Lindelof has turned in his script and that the execs over at 20th Century Fox love it. Part of the reason they like it so much is that it doesn’t add expensive set pieces but remains “creatively engaging”. They’re also happy that that script keeps the project at a PG-13 rating. Finally, this new picture is meant to return the franchise to its roots and is more off a horror-suspense film than an Aliens-style action flick.

However, there’s still going to be a space marine. Here’s a brief rundown of what else we know about the prequels:

The plan is to film two prequels, both of which will be shot in 3D.
The action takes place thirty years prior to the events of the first Alien movie.
Scott says the film is about “the discussion of terraforming — taking planets and planetoids and balls of earth and trying to terraform, seed them with the possibilities of future life.”
The prequels will elaborate on how “The Space Jockey” fits into the world of Alien
