The Return of ALIEN

Well, I knew this would happen, but I'm not worried. This could be good actually.

Producer Tony Scott confirmed to that he and brother Ridley Scott are developing a prequel film to Ridley's original Alien movie, with Carl Rinsch directing.

The news confirms the rumor first reported by Bloody-Disgusting that an Alien remake was in the works for 20th Century Fox.

"Carl Rinsch is going to do the prequel to Alien," Scott told Collider while promoting The Taking of Pelham 123. "He's one of our directors at our company."

Tony Scott added: "I'm excited because Ridley created the original, and Carl Rinsch is one of the family."

Scott said that he hopes to get the movie before cameras ""hopefully [by] the end of the year" for a summer 2011 release.

I enjoy these movies. I pray to Athena, this new version won't crap all over the classic tales.

Really, you've liked them all!!

Alien-Classic, great movie and teh Alien got to keep his true uncircumsized head shape!!

Aliens-Even better, awesome flick!!

Alien 3-Ok, a little slow.

Alien LOL

AVP 1-Underrated and I enjoyed it! Action flick to the tee and a gay man loves a strong black sustah in the lead!

AVP 2-So, so sad.

So for the most part the movies are great! About half and half for me. A prequel could be neat we'd get teh explanation for the giant in the pilot seat and all that stuff in the first movie. Could be cool!! :)

I love it! The fact that Ridley Scott is back at the helm is MAHVELOUS!
Oh my goodness...
The only Alien film that I hated was part 4. It was a popcorn movie, no more no less.
Anyway, I hope this film goes indepth about the space jockeys (e.g. don't tell it from a human perspective)and how the xenomorphs came into existence.
