Alien Getting The Remake/Prequel Treatment
Something disturbing is hatching over at Fox, something even worse than a facehugger. Just when you thought it couldn’t possibly get any worse for the Alien franchise after the disaster that was the Alien Vs. Predators, Fox goes and does this. Bloody-Disgusting says they’re working on rebooting the franchise with either a total remake of the awesome, perfect, original Ridley Scott movie or they’re going to do some sort of origin story prequel.
Here’s how they describe it:
…the plan is to stick with the original concept of only one alien on the ship.
Michael Costigan, Ridley Scott and even Tony Scott are all on board to produce and have tapped Carl Rinsch to get beyond the camera and bring a new Ripley to the big screen.
Who is Carl Rinsch? I’m being told he’s a commercial/music video director and does work for Scott Free Productions, who is also producing the remake.
