Yesterday, Prometheus forum member ONEIRONAUT 717 shared a link with us that lead to what could be Jon Spaihts' original Prometheus script. We've reached out to Jon on Twitter and await a reply. Last week, we received what was said to be Damon Lindelof's script but no confirmation of that claim being true however. Many fans are intrigued by this new script however, so it might have some promise! You can read it via the link
UPDATE: JON DPAIHTS CONFIRMS AUTHENTICITY OF SCRIPT:

my God....why didn't they film this? So much better than the Sphaits/Lindelof hybrid!

In my opinion, some of it is interesting and sheds more light, but over all, I like the film version, although I will confess readily that I dislike the still-human Fifeld. The special effects and creature costume department should have been used to go all out to depict the creature.

I agree with Priest- WHY DID THEY DO ANYTHING OTHER THAN THIS????
Darker, more sinister, cooler Engineers and Aliens, and quite scary to boot. THIS was the story I had hoped for. I'm sure many others did as well.
Plus, no plot holes! This was AWESOME.

I found Mr Spaihts' original imagining very credible and faithful to the original Alien tale but still cannot fault Mr Scotts' final interpretation.

Wow! Had an amazing time reading this script. Wish they had made it into a movie. Med pod scene with chestburster ripping out of Shaw's chest, Alien/Engineer hybrid, 3 dimensional characters and as mentioned before - no plot holes!

I'm gonna bite the bullet and say Lindelof's draft is exponentially better, if not more frustrating. I was a bit disappointed Xenomorphs weren't a part of the final film's fabric, but their presence in Spaiht's version don't really add much at all. Nothing new or interesting save for the Ultramorph, which is probably why they were scrapped in the first place. I think most everyone can agree that David was the most entertaining aspect of Prometheus, but here he is devoid of all the wit and subtlety that made the character so damn endearing. When I watch Prometheus I find myself giddy and on the verge of laughing at every single word leaving Fassbender's mouth. There was little to no lines of dialogue that had me caring about these characters, although the Fifield/Milburn quip deserved to be in the final film. Lindelof has a passion for creating cute, 3-dimensional red shirts, but like most Milburn and Fifield frustrated me. In hindsight I don't think they were necessary at all, I wasn't a fan of the hammerpede sequence in general. Could've spent that time on something far cooler, with characters we actually care about. All in all though, the final version is a more refined and focused version, perhaps a little too focused sometimes, but there is nuance and careful storytelling in Lindelof's work.

After first seeing Prometheus I felt it was a very good yet flawed film and I liked it a lot. But now after reading Spaihts script and going through the material on the iPad app I must say that I question Scotts judgement. There is a LOT of fantastic ideas everywhere. It's just a shame that Neville Pages and Rezards alien designs never where used. When you read Spaihts script (and yes it's not perfect) you really see how theese could have been used. I'm not by any means a professional screenwriter but I can see how scary and potent his vision is. Also the extra scenes on the Blu-ray that explains a lot of the strange things, why this peculiar cut of the movie? And WHY not use the Weta designed Fifield mutation scene... An actor in make up, well. It can't be that Lindelof came in and destroyed it all like many seem to believe, it must have been Scotts vision all along and that is sad. This really could have been a scary and epic thing and I remember long ago reading that Scott wanted to scare the hell out of everyone. To bad it had to end like this, I DO hope a sequel can somehow rescue this but I doubt it...
