An anonymous reader writes “Great news for Alien franchise purists, as conceptual artist H.R. Giger has been confirmed as a contributor to the prequel that Ridley Scott is set to begin shooting in February. The originator of the ‘xenomorph’ design, Giger was left out of James Cameron’s Aliens (1986), since Cameron only needed a new ‘Alien queen’ design, and had come up with that himself. This article features the Swiss TV broadcast where Giger’s wife broke the news, and a full gallery of Giger’s conceptual work for Alien.”
