Gemma Arterton has revealed that she will meet with Ridley Scott about starring in his Alien prequels.

The Tamara Drewe star told The Times that Scott requested a meeting after seeing her performance in J Blakeson's thriller The Disappearance Of Alice Creed.

Scott recently detailed his planned additions to the Alien franchise, saying that the two-film story will be "really tough, really nasty".

Arterton also disclosed that she has upcoming roles in The Keys To The Street, a Ruth Rendell novel adapted by Inception director Christopher Nolan and a Richard E. Grant-helmed "cowboy film" In With The Outlaws.
