Gemma Arterton Hoping for 'Alien' Role, Meeting Director

September 13, 2010 (8:24 am) GMT
During an appearance at Toronto Film Festival, she has confirmed that she was meeting Ridley Scott for a project.

"Prince of Persia" star has confirmed she's in talks to lead a planned Ridley Scott film just days after her publicist shot down reports linking her to an "Alien" prequel.

The Brit addressed the rumors over the weekend at the Toronto International Film Festival in Canada, where she's promoting new film "". She told reporters, "The honest truth is that Ridley Scott has approached me to meet with him about something in the next few weeks."

And she hopes it's for Alien - as industry insiders have been suggesting for weeks: "I'd love to get buff. But maybe I'll be playing an alien! I wouldn't mind that, actually. I like dressing up. That's why I became an actor in the first place."

The original "Alien", which Scott directed, starred as the leader of a team of scientists who encounter a killer in space.
