We have been emailed a "leaked" script for Prometheus today by an anonymous source who says he has come into posession of a 2nd draft copy for PROMETHEUS. The source claims to have gotten this from FOX...

I would also strongly advise that if you do choose to read on and then start a thread, we at the site would ask that you put Spoiler Alert in the title of your thread for those who don't want to spoil the experience.....thank you for your time.

i am truly ambivalent about this post
the temptation is all too great to just read it all,
but ALIEN was a true surprise for me when i
first saw it, and i am hoping that PROMETHEUS
will be just as great a surprise to discover
with that said,
i gave into temptation, and read this new script...
(well, a few paragraphs only) then quickly realized
what compelling concepts are represented here
as soon as my instincts began to compel me
to feel this may in fact be the REAL SCRPIT,
i promptly closed the web page
i do thank you for giving us all the OPTION to
quench our unwavering thirst for this mysterious
i do think you will have your hands full blocking
threads that are more than happy to spoil it for us
all you are delaying our own PROMETHEUS
still, thank you for posting this...

The last bit was cut off... Let me see about adding it again..
Posted: Mar-12-2012 12:02 AM
There... Updated with full draft...
Posted: Mar-12-2012 12:52 AM
I'm calling this one a fake gentlemen. I have added a link to the script in TXT format for faster viewing.
No official word has come about saying this is fake or not, so please do still proceed with caution. But going by the spelling and grammar, we're assuming this plot leak is another fan attempt.

I read it all, and real or not I still very much look forward to June 8th, 2012. Lucky for me reading a script, has never affected my outlook on a movie. The fact that it hasn't been over hyped, is pretty much working for it. Thanks BugHunter for a interesting quick read.
All in all once, PROMETHEUS is seen, the cat will be out of the bag (think of concepts like ALIEN to AVATAR/Inception). In time the mystique will be gone. What will matter most in the years to come will be: the story, the actors performances, and the pure visual gravity. If it fails to accomplish these three things, at leaked design/script will be the least of our problems.
JUNE 8th 2012!!!
Posted: Mar-12-2012 3:12 AM
Agreed Mekja-Tek. I read the whole thing and think it's fully bogus. Carefully pieced together from what's been shown so far, but bogus nonetheless. I hope to the Force it's bogus, because if it's real, nothing will save Hollywood this time.......... Seriously. It's that crap. Especially the ending.........
Posted: Mar-12-2012 5:43 AM
Dont woryy, the script has horse poo, the script keeps the whole movie on the alien planet, however it has already been stated that most of the movie will take place in space.
Posted: Mar-12-2012 6:50 AM
very thrilling...but FAKE!
Posted: Mar-12-2012 7:29 AM
FAKE... And I can prove it...
In the trailer there are two scenes...
1. One of the crew reaches their hands to their smoking helmet.
2. Holloway with no helmet screams in pain.
This script infers that scene 1 directly precedes scene 2. This is wrong.
The actor in scene 1 is not wearing a yellow bonnet-cap, but Holloway in scene 2 is, therefore scene 1 does not immediately precede scene 2. Furthermore it probably isn't even Holloway in scene 1. Thus this is a FAKE.
That an there is no mention of the rolling Derelict, nice try whomever wrote this but you'll have to do better than that.
Posted: Mar-12-2012 7:45 AM
It's even faker than the dead parrot is dead. Probably written by a non native English speaker. That or someone quite uneducated.
No, I didn't read the whole thing. Seeing a few contradictions was enough to turn me off. Maybe meant for the black market?..
By the way, Pleased to meet you. I'm Costaguanian. Go figure.
Posted: Mar-12-2012 10:10 AM
"They look like ancient Egyptian or Sumerian hieroglyphs or something"
There is no way a professional archeologist could say something like that. If this is true and in the movie, it´s a shame for Ridley.
Posted: Mar-12-2012 11:58 AM
I think this script is real. It might be an early version, but I think it is a real 'version' of the script. If any of you write for a living, you know the concept of 'revision'... This could be an early take before being finalized.
Posted: Mar-12-2012 12:29 PM
I don't think any leaked scripts should be revealed on this site. Why does anyone want to see it? Don't you want to be surprised at the theater?
I am against this even being here.
Posted: Mar-12-2012 12:46 PM
Early version LOL, are you joking me. Its a FAKE, too many errors in terms of the story, the grammar... I mean come a mind grain, seriously?!?
Posted: Mar-12-2012 1:03 PM
Well, I just read a few paragraphs and it is unmitigated rubbish. Full of spelling and grammatical errors and the dialogue is just laughable. My judgement? Fake, without a doubt.
Posted: Mar-12-2012 1:32 PM
The only practical use I can see for this script is as a coffee table, the dialogue is that wooden.
Posted: Mar-12-2012 1:38 PM
Playing the devils advocate here for a second. This looks to be a spec script at first glance and not and not a shooting and finalized script. Second...yes this person put out a lot of thought into what he or she did. Lastly, much of what is written makes some sense and when looking at some of the visuals, matches up perfectly. I worked as asst. script supervisor for a few months and all scripts go through many changes, even in shooting. Yes... It looks rough but I will say from experience it is fairly close to what I am seeing on the trailers. Would probably know more when the full trailer comes out Saturday. But hoefully it is a fraud because as someone said.... Who be crazy to let the cat out of the bag and working for Scott...who would do such a thing...
Stay frosty my friends...

After the zillionth "it's" instead of "its" I stumbled on
"Weyland has sent us the best of the best of Astrology and science"
and then I stopped.
I thought Weyland was going to change the world through technology, not horoscopes...
But reading the other posts I think I might have missed other jewels, like the one about hieroglyphs.
Posted: Mar-12-2012 2:03 PM
it was fake. it was so fake. I'm so sorry.
Posted: Mar-12-2012 3:14 PM
I call BS on the script. There seems to be far too many mistakes throughout. My wife is a script writer for company ad's and I had her read it, she just laughed. She said that it is pretty hard to believe a professional would make that many mistakes, even in a rough draft. Besides, I really doubt that a movie this secret would have anyone with ball's big enough to ruin it and destroy their reputation in the business for no real gain. But in any case there are some interesting things about it, but then there are some pretty silly things in there as well...The dialog at times just seems dumb...
Someone did put a lot of thought into it, but that doesn't mean anything to me as far as it being real or not. Some people just have a lot of time on their hands.
Posted: Mar-12-2012 3:52 PM
For all we know this could me a marketing ploy to keep people off the path and keep the film secret, psyops as we used in the military...make them think one thing and BAM, there is something else afoot!
Posted: Mar-12-2012 4:20 PM
This is real. Sure, numerous tweaks have been made across the whole thing but I know for a FACT that this is what we will see in the final product.
Posted: Mar-12-2012 4:27 PM
@Fury161, I am kind of leaning toward it as well, I hate to say it but the back bone is there and makes sense when I am watching the trailer...as stated, it probably has been tweaked but of course, we will find out Saturday with more shots to see....
Posted: Mar-12-2012 4:33 PM
Fury: not to offend you at all here, but I wish I had a dollar for every time I had someone tell me "they know for a fact".
Posted: Mar-12-2012 4:55 PM
I think we all be rich if that were the case....
Posted: Mar-12-2012 5:43 PM
Did Ridley Scott fire anyone recently? Maybe a pissed off intern who thinks they wont get caught! Ha!
Out of all the 'leaks' so far, this one seems the most legit. The last half of the script, in particular, is very creative. Tons of gaps, tons of questions and inconsistencies, let alone the dialog, but overall I can believe this is a legit early version of the script.
@Spacepilot does have a good point, in that most professionals would never make the amount of grammar errors contained in this document. Then again, people are consistent... It's vs its. If someone does it wrong through the whole script, then it is one person writing consistently. If they are in a frenzy batting ideas around and making revision after revision after revision, it is very possible to have all of the grammatical mistakes. IMHO. I work with scripts too and I've seen intelligent people turn out complete garbage when it comes to what they view as a 'finalized' script...
Posted: Mar-12-2012 6:26 PM
Fury 161, can we have some proof that you know for a "fact" that this is what we will see if you don't mind? I read the whole thing and could very easily have written it myself, with none of the grammatical errors that I saw, from what has actually been seen or released from everything that has come out so far regarding the movie. It would not take much of a stretch of the imagination to piece that "script" together, and having read it, there are some missing pieces from a) the teaser trailer and b) from the leaked trailer that came from comic-con. Things like Shaw screaming "please!" are missing. Also, the red laser lights are NOT part of the Derelicts equipment as PROVEN by the new teaser for the full length trailer. They are used by the Prometheus' crew. And the ending was the most glaring C-grade movie type ending I ever read. Like something out of one of the bad Friday the 13th movies. No way would Ridley Scott end this movie like that. Because that sort of ending has been done to death and would cheapen the whole experience IMHO. If it IS the script that was filmed, I will be asking for my money back at the cinema. So if you don't mind, where do you get your "factual information" from? Do you work for Fox or Scott Free or Brandywine at all? If not, how do you know for a "fact"?
Posted: Mar-12-2012 6:46 PM
The one other thing I have to say here is that even though Alien had sexual overtones to it, this script (at times) reads like some sci-fi geek's sexual fantasy more than it does a Ridley Scott movie. Of course that's just my opinion, but I would think others who have read it have thought the same thing.
Posted: Mar-12-2012 7:31 PM
Although it seems legit, I have some issues.
First of all: the script was released one day before the new teaser. It is an exceptionally well done interpretation of the scenes we have seen till now, but less so when we consider the teaser.
For exemple, it really seems that Prometheus will colide with the alien ship _ but some kind of scape pod is ejected from the ship before the collision, somewhat that is not in the script. Also, there is a scene of a guy holding two spheres that are the source of the red laser _ some kind of scanner, maybe _ so it´s clear that they are human artifacts, not alien artifacts as the script make us to think.
And the very end of the script seems exceedingly unlikely, given Ridley´s own declarations, also.
Posted: Mar-12-2012 8:03 PM
I thought it was very good. I did read with a open mind at first, but then it drew me in and I couldn't stop reading. The plot thickened where needed and the little suprises here and there were very good. Didn't like two screens and I certainly hope they are changed, as it happens to the same person twice and once was certainly enough and completely unnessesary !!!!
The tie ins were bang on to the trailor and made sense, the star map room made sense too. The ending was alittle weird to say the least, but the actual ending made me smile the most. If only the actual ending bit was real out of the entire script, it would be worth watching a possible 2 and half odd hour film just to see that on the big screen and in 3D !!!
Well that's my view, couldn't careless if it's-its fake or not, I enjoyed it!!
Oh by the way how many re-writes were there of Alien3 before the film was made and more re-writes during!!!!!!!
Posted: Mar-12-2012 8:31 PM
If this is it I'm gonna go watch it. If this isn't it I'm gonna go watch it.
Posted: Mar-12-2012 9:17 PM
I just finished reading it. I agree, I don't like the ending. Anyway...
I just have one point to make - why do they keep referring to the Alien space ship as 'the derelict' when a derelict is something that's abandoned, kaput, does not work anymore?
I think / I hope / It's fake!
Posted: Mar-12-2012 11:03 PM
Agreed T-Minus-Five. Fake as Pamela Anderson's bosoms.
Posted: Mar-13-2012 12:05 AM
I quickly skimmed through it this afternoon and thought about it on my drive home. To me, it seems as thought someone formed a story around rumors that have already been debated online and used some of the imagery of the teaser to make it seem valid. It is very possible that this is an early draft, but wasn't the story already drafted out before Ridley came on board? If so, then why are there references to Ridley's sketches in the script ("See Scott's sketches for more details.")?
Even for a rough draft, it just doesn't flow very well. I remember reading some of the early Alien 3 drafts that worked better than this (the alien "virus"). If it is an early draft, it goes into way too much detail of how some of the alien stuff looks to try to get you thinking about connections to the other "Alien" movies ("It has four organic pipe like tubes on it's back") and not enough detail about other plot points that should be better explained. Also, I think it's been leaked already that Mudow is killed within the first 30 minutes by an alien or something, whereas this has her being burned by a flamethrower by one of the crew well after the middle section.
I don't buy it. I think King Kaiser from "My Favorite Year" said something along the lines of, "Something stinks...it's coming from the script!" It applies here, in my opinion.
Posted: Mar-13-2012 12:58 AM
I think the biggest clue that this script is fake is that Fox hasnt made a request to get the script pulled. I did get goose bumps reading the opening sequence, its similar to how i always imaged Prometheus to start. We get to witness the Earth being created billions of years ago with a voiceover from the Book of Genesis.
Posted: Mar-13-2012 1:16 AM
EXACTLY darthmongo. Any ONE of us that frequents this site could have written that script.
cool name by the way
Posted: Mar-13-2012 6:41 AM
I have a suspicion the author is a member of this community -- not to mention, the fact www.prometheus-movie.com is advertised at the bottom of the script. Some scene descriptions are reminiscent of our old favorite member USHBUCK but alas, the writer's command of the English language is much too superior for that creature. Whomsoever the author is, I do want to congratulate them on tying in all the known scenes and discussion points and resulting conclusions derived on this very site. However, therein lies the flaw: because this script was written before the latest teaser trailer, and so you'll notice certain new scenes are completely missing from the script, i.e. the metallic grapefruit David holds in his hands, or the smaller vehicle jettisoned from the Prometheus, etc. etc. etc.
So no doubt this is a fake, but great effort at tying things together. That said, I hope the film is nothing like it!
Posted: Mar-13-2012 6:52 AM
We know that we will see Africa (filmed in petra, Jordan ) to an achielogical dig and this is not mentioned at all.
The alien derelict is derelict before it's derelict...... ha ha whoops see the sketch from ridley on that one
FAKE but let's not have anymore fruitless abominations
Posted: Mar-13-2012 8:39 AM
Best response on here !
it was fake. it was so fake. I'm so sorry
This script is fake - Thank you for the read, it passed an hour.
Posted: Mar-13-2012 9:40 AM
thanks for the props on my response.
Posted: Mar-13-2012 12:19 PM
After reading the whole script, I think it's fake, but foremost, I hope it's fake, because if this is the real deal, then it would be disappointment for the fans, and we are fans. The plot in this 'fake' script is really weak. Let's hope for the best and that the movie, with a different script will blow our minds.
Posted: Mar-13-2012 4:41 PM
Thought I would share my thoughts...
I PRAY this is the FAKE I think it because Hollywood has got SERIOUS problems if this got picked up.
It is TERRIBLE! The spelling and grammar is horrendous; I agree with what some have said in that it seems the author has written around the trailer and other bits of info and tried to create a script around it.
I am only a short way through and I have physically cringed multiple times - it's AWFUL!
Now, Jon Spaihts has had a hand on the original draft - he gave us the life draining The Darkest Hour - so it wouldn't surprise me if this was his work BUT if the finished movie is anything like this, it will be terrible - no matter how cool it looks.
Will give the rest a read - if anything, it's an interesting read and a guide on how NOT to write a script.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let PROMETHEUS be the masterpiece is HAS to be - it would be a crushing disappointment if the man who started this whole franchise wounded it even further!
Posted: Mar-13-2012 5:43 PM
I don't know What to think about it I've read it all the script, I hope Prometheus is going to be better than this fake o early draft script. Let's wait for the Complete trailer this Saturday..and We will see..
Posted: Mar-13-2012 6:01 PM
This is GREAT, contrary to the popular belief. Here is the BUT though this is written way too sloppy for it to be the actual script. I mean if this is a spin off from a Dark Horse Aliens comic I would say totally legit but for a feature movie that has Ridley Scotts name on it I don't think so. But i like it and if this is the movie well I think its still gonna be EPIC but I just can't say this is going to be P R O M E T H E U S.
Posted: Mar-13-2012 6:16 PM
Can someone explain this?
Near the end of the script there is quite a detailed description of a firefight in the cargo bay. It describes a proto-zeno type creature flinging people around, one crewman killed after hesitating to flame the creature and also two crew emptying clips into the creature before it disappears over the ledge of the cargo hold.
Now does that scene not uncannily resemble the scene which was released in the new teaser trailer?
This "script writer" at the very least is displaying prior knowledge of that trailer and at worst displaying a very early draft of the actual movie.
I am appalled by this script as much as anyone else so if someone can come up with an explanation I'd be a happy android
Posted: Mar-13-2012 7:16 PM
If this is what Ridley has in mind, I guess he is doing the same dope that lucas and Carpenter were doing when they ruined their "Masterpieces" .
Seriously this doe's not feel like a part of the " Alien Universe" . I believe what will make this effort weak is the missing contributions of Dan O'bannon .
Posted: Mar-13-2012 7:30 PM
I just got done reading it. Part of me thinks this is mostly what we are going to see June 8th. Like someone said earlier it is probably a very early version and scenes were added such as the dig in Africa. For the most part, I was not very impressed with the overall story. This isn't the "masterpiece" I had in mind. At least there wasn't any time travel in it, Damon seems to love it.
Posted: Mar-14-2012 12:29 AM
@nderwiggin - You have a valid point. No one can explain that away. It is very possible this is all fanfic. It is also possible that this is (as described in the post) a 2nd draft. There could have been 16 rewrites by the time it was finished. That scene could have been changed dramatically. Things can be moved around. If this is real, it will be the spine of the story... Not perfect, more of a rough outline.
If this is fanfic, then someone did a good job (potentially great job if it weren't for the grammar issues). The fact that this script is still easily viewable here, to me, means this is a fake, despite the fact that on first read it seemed/seems like a plausible script. We'll see....
Posted: Mar-14-2012 3:00 AM
Re the terrible grammar, ... I've not read the leaked script but appalling spelling only makes me believe that it IS real. Remember the tagline from the leaked teaser: THE SEARCH FOR MANKIND'S BEGINNING COULD LEAD TO IT'S [sic] END?
Besides, Hollywood is full of semi-literate hacks: some of them win Oscars. Anyone reading the leaked version of Tarantino's INGLOURIOS BASTERDS script (the director defiantly turned a misspelling into the actual title) would have a hard time believing that such an error-choked hodgepodge would ever get the green light, let alone be nominated for Best Picture. Fassbender was in that too.
Of course, bad spelling itself doesn't necessarily mean that the writer is completely incapable of putting together a good story. But it's a reasonable indication that s/he is poorly read and/or poorly educated. And such people are better off playing video games, not penning $200m Hollywood blockbusters.
Here's hoping this ISN'T the real script.
Posted: Mar-14-2012 7:50 AM
i couldn't resist and read the script, although i don't think this is real i think like many others that this might be pretty accurate with the backbone of the story. Partly by so much that has been shown in trailers which i think is a massive problem in todays film industry were you pretty much can work out the entire plot of a film by its standard 2 minute trailer nowadays. I know- i didn't have to watch the trailer but put anything infront of a fan and they can't resist.
One thing that really made me question this as the genuine article is the two scenes with Shaw. What was the point of having the first one in the script, secondly Niomi Rapace shot to fame from doing the millenium triology in which the first film she is involved in a horrific rape scene, I don't as an actor she is then going to do that role again in her next big film and as director i don't think he would chose an actress famous for that scene to do it again in his film. Seems weird.
Posted: Mar-14-2012 5:33 PM
From what I've seen so far, I'd say this script is pretty dead on.
Posted: Mar-14-2012 5:43 PM
I hope this isn't genuine as i will be bitterly dissapointed come June the 1st (UK)...
Posted: Mar-14-2012 5:48 PM
The ending of it made me want to vomit it's so overdone
Posted: Mar-14-2012 6:24 PM
As a big fan of the Alien series, I am hoping this is NOT the real script! If this is it, I'm very disappointed. So you make first alien contact and there is not security whatsoever, you just rush in? You're on another world and you lose your mind and decide to breath the air, what about science and technology and testing for germs and microrganisms and being contaminated....duh! Please, please be fake!
Posted: Mar-14-2012 6:32 PM
Really hoping this is fake!
For one, Scott is going for a PG-13 rating, that wont happen with the alien machine rape like scene.
Also, Shaw is genuinely friendly towards Holloway after he's raped her. What person would be happy to be around someone who raped them.
The ending is awful. Surely Scott has more vision than that! Well. I hope anyway lol!
Posted: Mar-14-2012 6:46 PM
Epic fail, why would we see a normal alien at the end, surely if it had come out of the space jockey it would be something different, you know with the whole DNA thing.
Posted: Mar-14-2012 9:34 PM
I call it fake. And if it is not then I stand corrected and guilty of knowing too much when it launches in June!
Posted: Mar-14-2012 11:26 PM
If it is real, and someone from Fox checks this site (as I know for a fact they do, and I can verify my FACTS too, when asked to do so ) then they need to either debunk this as fake, and if it is real, CHANGE THE ENDING. TO ANYTHING ELSE. NOT SOME SCHLOCK HORROR CRAP.
Posted: Mar-14-2012 11:33 PM
Just read it. This looks like a very early draft... perhaps from the time when the film was going to be a direct prequel to Alien. I bet the final film will be quite different, but similar in some scenes and dialogue...
There are several errors on this "leaked script" based on the scenes from the new teaser alone. For starters, the crew member mutating into a long limbed-elongated head monster is Fifield (Sean Harris), who apparently is converted by the Engineers. They give him the mohawk and head tatoos (with one of their lasers?) and some exotic weaponry (the flying balls of death... a Phantasm reference? Ridley Scott seems to be a fan of late 70s, early 80s gore films).
Also, the fast aging crewmate must have been the result of a malfunctioning hypersleep pod. And Holloway begins also to mutate after being attacked, infected and tossed by monster Fifield.
Posted: Mar-14-2012 11:42 PM
Could this be....???
Posted: Mar-15-2012 12:09 AM
@Kronnang Dunn › Seriously dude, you are looking at it wrong. Those red balls are part of their equipment, I responded to a post of yours earlier about the same thing, those red laser balls are scanning equipment for the Prometheus crew, in the teaser trailer there are 4 people quite happily and un-afraid walking around while those orbs do their thing. They are not Space Jockey weapons. At all. Also, the guy leaping guy in the teaser trailer is the guy with the mohawk and the tattoos, and no one knows for certain what that character's name is at all yet.
I'm starting to think YOU are in fact the author of the "leaked script" since you keep referring to Fifield both here and in the other thread I mentioned. No one had heard that name before that "script" happened along.
Posted: Mar-15-2012 9:14 AM
I think the plot is true. It's impossible to confirm at this point but the sheer length and scope of the script are impossible to ignore. The only discrepancy I notice is that in the script Janek sacrifices himself as the Prometheus crashes into the SJ ship. But in the new trailer teaser we see what looks like the Prometheus approaching the SJ ship but then an escape pod or something detaches from the Prometheus. So either it is a hoax or the script was a draft and the actual film has a crew member(s) setting the ship on auto and jettisoning at the last minute. The ending in the script is terrible and is the only thing that I don't particularly like. But then having Vickers exposed as a homicidal android acting upon Company orders parallels Alien and having Shaw do what she must to protect her child is very reminiscent of Aliens.
The script does seem to make sense and follows the original Alien recipe...i.e. starting out with a discovery, realizing a threat, and then having an epic firefight at the end.
To the posters who think Fox would scramble to remove the leak. If they did that, it would be an admission of guilt. There's nothing they would be able to do without arousing suspicion
Posted: Mar-15-2012 10:10 AM
The easiest way to prove this is a fake is to look at Prometheus writer Damon Lindelof's Twitter. He can clearly spell and punctuate just fine. Whoever wrote this script cannot.
Posted: Mar-15-2012 11:39 AM
Ok, listen up you tools... this script was amazing and exactly the kind of thing Ridley Scott would shoot. Think about it, the script is very accurate at some points compared to the trailer, and if you whatch the first film by the end you have more questions then answeres.... at the end of this script i had way more questions then answeres. That is Scott's M.O. Just to point out as well, the ending was amazing!!!!! Are you kidding me, she decides to keep the freaking thing, that is just disturbing enough for Ridley to do. And to answere all of your stupid questions, if we do see the xeno on lv 426 at the end, that space jocky was experimenting with a different species then the one on Zeus!!!! TWO DIFFERNET PLANETOIDS PEOPLE!!!!!!! Thank you for your time in this matter. You all suck if you think this script is stupid.
Posted: Mar-15-2012 11:58 AM
Thanks for your constructive input...
Apparently we are all tools....
You might wanna look up how to spell Colonial Marines...
Posted: Mar-15-2012 12:28 PM
I think that "Colinalmarines" needs some colonic irrigation to remove the corn cobs. Or else use his proper username of USHBUCK. His use of capital letters and alternative spelling is unmistakeable.
Seriously can someone not get this dudes IP address and ban him
Posted: Mar-15-2012 12:32 PM
Dear Pikey: lol i meant to spell it like that, and plus if you didnt know there is a picture of the crew walking past one of the SJ suites and examining the head of the suit. That is in the script. so you all loose.
Posted: Mar-15-2012 12:36 PM
I would sincerely hope if mankind makes it into the future and is able to visit other worlds, that we would have better procedures upon landing on another world and especially if there is first contact.......but as Ripley was heard saying in Aliens, "have IQ's sharply fallen since I've been away?" Maybe people of the future are dumb as rocks. I know Ripley came after this movie, but the future looks bleak.....haha. If this is the true script, we're in trouble.....it was absolutely terrible!!!!

No professional scripter would have produced this tripe even in first draft
and Ridley Scott would never have filmed this bilge
sorry boys and girls

p.s. Lindelof probably would have spelled migraine properly

The script refers to a 'chilled feline solution' replacing blood in cryogenics. (Maybe if Jones had an accident?) I don't know what the writer meant to say - saline perhaps - but it actually helps answer this whole business once and for all.
It's definitely fake. A very worthy fake, but a fake nonetheless.
Posted: Mar-15-2012 1:27 PM
It was fake. So fake. I'm so sorry.
Posted: Mar-15-2012 1:46 PM
thanks! props #2
for those on here that think this is real because it matches what you are seeing in the trailer: did you ever stop to think the person who constructed this script did it by putting the scenes from the trailer together in a sensible way and then constructed a story around it using previous fake or speculated plot lines. 90% of us on here could have taken an hour out of our day and written much the same thing or better.
Also some of you are taking info from previous fake scripts and talking about it as if it was fact. The fact is we know very little about what is going on here. For example plot speculation based on a "rapidly aging man" is off base. It's seems just as likely to me this old man might be Peter Weyland at an advanced age. We know Guy Pearce is in the movie briefly so it could be that Weyland came along on the trip and is quickly killed in some sort of altercation. Now I could be right or wrong but like everyone else I don't really know what I am talking about.

Colinalmarines or whatever your name is...
Quote: lol i meant to spell it like that, and plus if you didnt know there is a picture of the crew walking past one of the SJ suites and examining the head of the suit. That is in the script. so you all loose.
The picture you are referring to was on this site way before the "leaked script" was so how does that make the script genuine ???
I sincerely hope that absolute tripe that someone has stated is the script isn't the real one or i am afraid we do all "loose" as you put it...
Posted: Mar-15-2012 1:49 PM
noticed the same thing. the writer did mean chilled saline solution not feline solution.
This was written by someone who speaks another language first before English.
Also looks like they spelled FTL as FTI all over the script unless I is something that's even faster than light that I haven't heard about.
Posted: Mar-15-2012 1:52 PM
I am so sick of seeing people spell lose as loose. I see this all over the internet.
Go back to kindergarten.
Posted: Mar-15-2012 1:58 PM
I agree with you on your post the red balls are 100% Prometheus gear but the name Fifield has been around for a long time now at least on imdb, long before this script came about. so on that point you are wrong, so wrong.
Posted: Mar-15-2012 2:37 PM
I am firmly on the other side of the fence with the red salty balls. I think the crew get scanned with them and they're sj tech. LIke how do they fly??? If the humans have anti-grav technology, why are they rolling in with wheeled vehicles? Ridley doesn't do fantasy tech. He's a hard sci-fi man as he should me.
Also @cavalorn "feline solution" is hilarious! Maybe its the future term for milk!
Posted: Mar-15-2012 2:38 PM
Damn, here I was feeling all clever for figuring out who wrote this fake script, and it turns out he was already identified three days ago. Apparently he emailed the script out in .ODT form and it included his real name as the author.
Posted: Mar-15-2012 5:53 PM
OK so I don't even bother with IMDB. Because usually the information there is bollocks. Does anyone really trust it's information most of the time? They had Guy Pearce as some other character entirely until the TED video............... So I'll admit to being wrong that no-one had seen the name Fifield, but I still stand by what I said.
Posted: Mar-15-2012 6:30 PM
Does anybody have a legitimate reason they think this is fake other than grammar?
I'm about 60-40 on this being real or at least a first draft:
Reasons it could be real:
1. Ties into the first trailer almost perfectly. When i read the script I visualized everything occurring in the trailer, and nothing seemed forced.
2. Deals with and addresses everything Ridley said he wanted to address. After reading the script, I now know who the space jockeys are, how humanity/earth came about,and where the Xeno came from.
Reasons it could be fake:
1. Shaw appears to get raped twice in the script, once by Holloway and another by essentially the Space Jockey. Seems like a bit too much for a Fox movie, especially one debated about being PG-13. Both scenes seem to contain some detail too, not just implied rape. Though, that could be a reason FOR it being real, as the original ALIEN writers envisioned the Alien reproducing by raping humans.
2. The very ending, like the last part where Shaw and her baby sit down on Zeus quietly, seemed a bit too cheesy. I'd like to think they could come up with better.
Other than that, I actually thought it was a good read. The story had amazing potential to me and seemed well executed. It also was very dark and there were points in the script I was legitimately scared. There is also potential to top the first two Alien movies from a horror/gore perspective, and shock value is there, which is something Ridley wanted. I don't think we should write this script off as fake just because we're in denial. I think if the ending of this was tweaked it has great potential. At the very minimum whoever wrote this put a lot of thought into it if it is indeed a fake.
Posted: Mar-15-2012 6:38 PM
No you are right @hicksandhudson, it WAS a good read (besides the ending) but the thing is that ANYONE who has been on this site or any other site for that matter could have written it from all the available material so far. The bits that were in the trailer seemed, to me anyway, like filler that someone came up with in the space of a couple hours or so. And I read somewhere that the guy that wrote it has been found anyways.
Posted: Mar-15-2012 6:39 PM
I read this this afternoon against my better judgment and I do have a few issues with the authenticity of it. People have brought up the grammar and whatnot but in a lot of scripts that I've read, there are errors because it's not going to be published work unless the studio wants to release it as a book.
My biggest issue that if this is written by Jon Spaihts, then it pales in comparison to the other scripts that I've read by him. If anyone has read Shadow 19 or Passengers, then you'll know what I'm talking about. He incorporates a lot more information and his dialogue is worlds above this one. I know that Damon Lindelof did revisions to it but at the core, this doesn't match the imagination that Spaihts showed with his other works.
There are some really cool ideas though but unfortunately if you look at it in the timeline that Alien follows, it seems like the technology is more advanced than it was for Alien. That's my major issue with the whole thing. If they're going to make this as a prequel, then they need to remember what follows it and do the opposite of what Lucas did with the Star Wars prequels.
These are just a few of my thoughts and I hope I'm wrong because I got a resounding feeling of "meh" after reading the whole thing.
Posted: Mar-15-2012 6:56 PM
Okay, I didn't want to do this, but if you want hard proof that this is a fake, here it is.
What I did was to google the phrase 'chilled feline solution'. There are two hits. One is the script above, the other is this comment dated February 12, on a Prometheus forum: 'suspended animation is possible as proven with animals but it would require 80% of your blood to be drained and replaced at the same time with a chilled feline solution.' It's by a guy calling himself Nineinchwonder, who is the same guy that leaked the script in the first place.
But there's even more solid proof (over on AVPGalaxy) where they point out that the guy emailed the script to them in .ODT format - which, presumably unbeknownst to him, included his real name as the document author. He turned out to be Nineinchwonder.

Snap. Solved sorted and DEBUNKED. Nice work Cavalorn
Posted: Mar-16-2012 12:30 AM
@Cypher As you can now clearly see, I didn't write the draft (I still can't understand what made you think that in the first place).
Sorry, but I am still convinced the flying balls aren't human made. They are too small and too alien looking to me. How such small things fly? They look too advanced compared to the rest of the Prometheus crew's equipment. And in the first teaser Milburn seems surprised by those balls, since he seems to be the only one who notices them.
I remember a comic con screen cap of the first bootlegged teaser where Milburn is in the same position (with his head waay up) and screaming in pain. And I remember some comments from the description of that leaked teaser that some astronaut in a spacesuit wearing glasses literally explodes inside the suit...
Posted: Mar-16-2012 3:58 AM
All SPECULATION. Looking at that screen grab there are 3 VISIBLE people, 2 don't seem AT ALL phased by the balls, and the guy closest to us seems to be looking at something else entirely. With a red laser ON HIM. If they were SJ weapons he would be cloven in half, he doesn't even seem to be reacting at all to the laser light.
I'll eat my computer if they are Space Jockey weapons.
Posted: Mar-16-2012 4:04 AM
I read it all because I'm so obsessed with this movie that I wrote my own script about the events on LV-426 after Alien but before ALiens. There are numerous typos and lots of Dialogue homages to alien "a cave of some sort". I hope to god this is fake, the dialogue is poorly written, just as bad as my own and im a friggen amateur. The only good thing about this script is that it actually fits mine which fits into the series so I wouldent have to rewrite it.
Posted: Mar-16-2012 4:59 AM
@Cypher you seem to be pretty convinced the red balls are SJ tech. Can you explain why all the human technology has no anti-grav capability but the balls do?
The ship uses thrusters, the rovers use wheels, even the cameras in the TED talk use rotar blades.
AND I think Guy Pearce would have mentioned the mastering of gravity in his speech on becomming gods, seeing that this would be an infinitely more signifigant achievment then Biotech Nanotech or fusion/fission.
Unless there is some other ways the balls could fly?
Posted: Mar-16-2012 7:26 PM
I have to retract my previous comment about thinking this is fake unfortunatly. I had only read a portion of the leaked script before commenting, and had not reached really anything that was related to the scenes we have seen from the trailers.
After reading comments here where there were true believers of this script being quite possibly true, I had to saite my curiosity. Now I wish I had not! I have to join the group of people that believe.
I won't preach about why I have changed my mind, as many others have hit on the points that stuck out in my head. So I leave it to thier posts to paint the picture of why.
I do think this was a fantastic read if it is fake though, the author had some pretty good ideas and it had me griping my ipad tight and wanting to read more.
And if it is true then I am guilty of knowing too much on June 8th, but looking forward to the visuals!!!!
Posted: Mar-16-2012 8:20 PM
No @enderwiggin I think they are PROMETHEUS CREW TECH. READ THE POSTS PROPERLY. Here, I'll paste from a couple
Those red balls are part of their equipment, I responded to a post of yours earlier about the same thing, those red laser balls are scanning equipment for the Prometheus crew, in the teaser trailer there are 4 people quite happily and un-afraid walking around while those orbs do their thing. They are not Space Jockey weapons. At all. Also, the guy leaping guy in the teaser trailer is the guy with the mohawk and the tattoos, and no one knows for certain what that character's name is at all yet.
I'll eat my computer if they are Space Jockey weapons.
Posted: Mar-16-2012 11:19 PM
Fake. The plot connects through all the rumors around here as if they were all true. Not possible. Many of the other scenes that fill in the stuff between the rumors were obviously borrowed from other works of science fiction. If Ridley served this up, the critics would say that he's spent way too much time paying homage to himself.
Posted: Mar-17-2012 2:32 AM
Ok I've stilled each screen on the trailer. And I'm curious now. Before I've commented on here saying its fake and I still believe that. My issue is that the fake script is pretty close to factual stuff. There is an alien like snake thing that does some crazy stuff like sexual. I find that to sound a little rubbish and if the film portrays this. It looks like we have a THING/ alien movie on our hands. The script covers a lot of factually stuff taken form from both trailers. Ie the crash, the alien snake like sex thing?, alien DNA transformation to humans. The android that saves the humans. There is to many links to diss miss this script. Ok it's written by a high school kid and Ridley scot is a shit hit written and if you google alien script and speaks and reads in volumes compared to this script. So I can say its fake. But what I can't get my head around is that the plot stuff is very similar and I'm starting to feel like if the film does pan out to be an alien like snake thing that has sex with females crew and transforms their DNA then I'm going to be gutted
Posted: Mar-19-2012 3:22 AM
@Cypher: I was wrong, I was so wrong. I'm so sorry... The balls are indeed crew equipment. Perhaps antigravity is easier to achieve on smaller objects... who knows...
And yet, according to Sean Harris' resume on Troika, his character is called Fifield. And he has a mohawk and some weird head tatoos.
Posted: Mar-20-2012 5:29 PM
I agree, this draft seems too accurate, taking into account what is in the trailers - and the draft was released way before. As the source did not advertise himself, why would someone take the time to write such a draft and getting zero credit for it? No way... I'm afraid it is really close to the final story we gonna see in the theaters. The typos are horrible, but the new generation is functional illiterate, so I'm not even surprised...
I've read it at night and it is gripping. Put me in a mood for a long time.
Can't wait to see it!
Posted: Mar-20-2012 6:10 PM
The 2 balls emitting red laser: they are mapping devices, flying through the corridors, creating a 3D map of the area. If you watch closely, you can see in a shot in the trailers, where their map is shown in 3D, yellow tunnels, and you can see the red dots representing the balls moving, also you can see the crew members on the 3D map...
Posted: Mar-21-2012 12:00 PM
FAKE. I mean come on people. Yes, there do seem to be some accuracies, but nothing that I don't think could have been gathered from the first trailer if the writer did a frame by frame inspection. If you look at the new trailer though, there are too many things missing, namely the artifacts found regarding "an invitation". Also, I think from what we see of David in this new clip, and from what Fassbender has said publicly, his character seems a lot different that the dialog written here.
Posted: Apr-11-2012 9:36 PM
The spelling and grammar errors may be just a way to identify individual copies of the script. At first these errors seemed dumb for a professional writer. Then they seemed to be too dumb and might be contrived. For example, in the first page or so, the words "Your" and "You're" are reversed. I can't see someone, especially a professional writer, making that mistake.
Still, if it were real, the FBI and Fox would be all over it as stolen property and demand that it is removed.
Also, the writer said there is no planet Zeus in the movie and called this a fake.
That said, I did enjoy reading the script, fake or not.
One other point, this movie will have a Frankenstein style revulsion to it from the religious quarter. At the time, people attacked Frankenstein as science run amok. In reality, it was attacked for usurping the religions' idea that only god can create life.
This movie will likely show the SJ creating humans, which will be heresy. Should be fun to watch the fireworks after the movie.
Posted: Apr-14-2012 4:55 AM
Read the script and can confirm it is real.
I work for MPC London, whom are doing some off the vfx on Prometheus. And indeed it has a penis sequence where Shaw is impregnated.
Posted: Apr-26-2012 12:42 PM
Fake. Too many grammatical and contextual errors.
Posted: May-04-2012 11:53 PM
Sorry for the Necropost
There's your floating red balls.
Also, keep in mind that things in Hollywood go through a lot of revision. If this was remotely real, then it may end up being insanely early, like 2010 maybe. Also, this hasn't addressed the fact that an apparently infected human sits in front of some sort of waterfall environment examining his apparently metamorphosing flesh. Just wait to see the movie, It's either good or bad. But considering the fact that lot's of some responses between characters made no sense, this would be unusable for Ridley.
Posted: May-13-2012 12:18 AM
Well... It describes the Milburn scene with the little penis/snake creature and the brown thing coming out of his mouth. Both scenes match what we have seen in the latest trailers. It also depicts what happens to David in the Jockey "gun" room, and we all have seen his body lying near the "gun" in the trailer stills. Reading this 2 months after it was "leaked", no one faking it could have known those details back when this was posted...
Gonna close with AVP is better than this $hit..
Posted: May-18-2012 1:43 AM
Guys, as for the grammatical errors and the saline-feeline solution it's and its: this is obvious. The guy who leaked the script has scanned it from a printed script and then used a software to transform it to text. Where the copy was not readable enough, the software made its own choices. This is how it came to the "stupid" mistakes. It happens a lot with scanned documents. I'd say that it's rather real than fake. There are such "disruptive" ideas in it that are not in the trailers and can't be just made up like that.
Posted: May-31-2012 4:57 PM
I would like to congratulate the author of this fake script , wich is better than the real one from Damon Lindelof .......
Posted: Jun-03-2012 10:15 PM
Guys, I am sorry to say this, and all of your opinions matter, but after reading this script and seeing every single trailer and tv ads, i really believe most of this is real. How many shots have we seen on tv where the two ships collide, how many times have we seen where shaw is laying inside some pod machine, and we see an above shot with her screaming. we also see a shot of her on the ground with one of the suits walking towards her, i may be just totally out of it, but this scrips seems pretty legitimate.
Posted: Jun-10-2012 2:15 AM
Are you people completely retarded, or just kinda?? You are aware that scripts go through various phases of writing, rewriting, then yet some more rewriting, by a dozen people or countless more at times, for years on end at other times.. just coz certain specific events take place in this terrible script that don't appear in the final film.. or THE TRAILERS.. doesn't make this screenplay fake at all. In fact, given just how terrible it is, and Spaihts efforts on The Darkest Hour, it's practically a confirmation that this POS script is legit.
Posted: Jun-16-2012 12:28 AM
Nomorons, I disagree. Almost everything in this script comes from the earliest trailers and official (or fake) plot synopses. It deviates far from a lot of later plot points (the ones we had the least information on), lacks specific details from a lot of trailers conveniently released after this script, and very clearly imagines visuals we saw in wrong or different ways.
Fake, but an interesting read. I congratulate the writer for getting it so close in places and coming up with some truly interesting ideas.
