Haunting and beautiful, Black Swan soars. The pursuit of perfection can be a perilous thing. We’re taught to strive to be the best. We can’t be complete until we rid ourselves of all faults. Perfection isn’t just a goal: it’s a moral mandate. Of course, the obvious problem with this message is that we are all defined by our imperfections. None of us are perfect. We’re all flawed.
Count this as your big nerdy news scoop for the week, because it probably won't get much better than this. Vulture reported on this earlier today and it's a whopper of a story. Apparently Damon Lindelof (Lost writer) turned in his latest draft for Ridley Scott's Alien prequel this past Saturday, and the movie studio absolutely fell in love with it.
According to reports, 20th Century Fox liked Lindelhof's script because it was engaging, and best of all featured no massive (read expensive) set pieces or production heavy FX shots. Which means the script can be shot on a cheaper budget. It's great news because so far Scott and Fox have been arguing about the budget, so hopefully this new script will help resolve that issue.
