Gemma Arterton Not Meeting with Ridley Scott for Alien Prequel

Despite previous reports from the UK tabloids/newpapers (is there really any separation there?) that had British lovely Gemma Arterton (“Prince of Persia”, “Clash of the Titans”) scheduled to meet with Ridley Scott about possibly playing the female lead in his upcoming “Alien” prequels, word from MTV via Arterton’s publicist is that the meeting was never scheduled, and that there is “no truth to that”.

Of course, this wouldn’t be the first time a celebrity’s publicist told a bold face lie, but when it comes to lying publicist versus the UK tabloids, you gotta figure the publicist wins this one hands down.

Then again, Gemma Arterton fighting off acid-spewing aliens would be kinda hot, in a, “Wow, that’s very unexpected, but I’m so turned on anyway” kinda way…
