    Alien Prequal In The Works..

    Why? :

    A few days ago, Bloody-Disgusting reported that 20th century Fox was going to remake “Alien” and director Carl Rinsch would be helming the movie. Immediately fandom exploded with venom. I think one of the main reasons is that the original is a classic, and 20th Century Fox hasn’t been making films of that caliber recently.

    So at today’s junket for Tony Scott’s new film “The Taking of Pelham 123″, I went up Tony after the press conference ended to ask him what was up with the remake.

    The big news is he confirmed Carl Rinsch would be directing it and that it’s a prequel to his brother Ridley’s classic!

    What Tony told me is after the jump:


    Collider: 20th Century Fox is talking about remaking or redoing the original Alien. What’s going on with that?

    Tony Scott: Yes, Carl Rinsch is going to do the prequel to Alien. He’s one of our directors at our company.

    Collider: I’m going to be blunt about this. Fox has not been doing a great job recently with their movies. They haven’t been an artist friendly studio. Are you guys going to have some creative control and make this a kick-*** film?

    Tony: Yes! But Fox is our home. They finace our production company.

    Collider: And I’m very happy that you guys have the financing. But a lot of the films they’ve been doing at the studio level, they’ve been nickel and diming and not giving fandom what they want. So I guess my question for you is…are you a little nervous about reengaging the franchise or are you excited.

    Tony: I’m excited cause Ridley created the original and Carl Rinsch is one of the family.

    Collider: When do you envision this film getting in front of cameras?

    Tony: Hopefully the end of the year.

    Collider: Will it be a summer of 2011 movie?

    Tony: Honestly, I don’t know.

    While I wish I could give you more info, I only had moments to talk with him. Look for more “Alien” info as I get it.

    Hmmm, I had posted a month ago where it was said that Ridley Scott was going to try and direct the next Alien film, this now sounds like its going to be ****...

    So it's a prequel to the original- not a remake. Atleast I can breathe easier about that..

    Still. It's true enough that the aliens did "Exist" prior to Alien. This much is certain with AVP and AVP2... Also the Company (Weyland Yutani) knew about the creatures enough to send the crew of the Nostromo to LV28(?) in the first place and get impregnated.

    Oh boy, I hope they get McG instead to direct, he did such a great job with Terminator [/sarcasm]

    The only thing good about all these weak remakes is that eventually a new generation of filmmakers will break through and we will have good movies again. eventually

    ... I wonder if they will touch on the Alien-ship that had crashed landed.

    ie- what all went down with Alien with the hole in its chest (fused to the chair) and the warning signal that the Nostromo key-ed in on...

    I am stunned that some people appear to love their Playstation(1,2,3) or Xbox(360) more than I love the Denver Broncos.
    Trust me, it's sad

    You mean the Space Jockeys? (Thats the race name).

    They're the most enigmatic race in the entire thing. Current theory is that they created the entire alien species as a bio weapon in a war. But it got out of control.

    Allegedly they also taught the Predator (Yautja) space travel.

    I think that this might be an attempt to tie up the avp1/2 and the alien series' storylines together. I'm hoping for an entertaining trainwreck.

    Not familiar with any of this- but intrigued!

    wouldn't mind hearing that story as opposed to another Human-based story...

    That's a very interesting train of thought. Would be good if you were right.
