There really isn’t too much to say other than… Thank God For Twitter.

Today, Henry South, a visual effects designer on the film tweeted out the good news.

Started work on alien prequel today!! Absolutely stunning. Worth waiting till late 2011 for peeps! – Henry South via Twitter.

2011 sounds like a really long time to wait for something as cool as we’re all hoping this will be.

The film is actually going to be split into two movies, plus, with Ridley Scott behind the camera and Damon Lindelof behind the pen, we are pretty much guaranteed something awesome.
