Alien Prequel Confirmed

Confirmed with a surprise

Well, I am a fan of Alien, even more so of Aliens. The way the Alien franchise has been represented on screen, from Aliens 3 onward to Alien vs Predator Requiem, it has been terrible. So a prequel does not sound much better, especially considering TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX is the studio! Remember, the last good movie from Fox may be X2: Xmen United and ever since then Fox has been in a downward spiral for me. Prequels very very rarely do good, I can't even think of one.

But there is hope, Ridley Scott has been attached to direct as indicated by this article. Yes you heard right, Ridley Scott who directed the original Alien in the 1970's. This gives the movie some hope even though some of the commentators in the article imply Ridley Scott's past refusal to be involved with the Alien franchise.

To be honest, I am worried with how bad Fox has become with the amount of control they pushed into Xmen Origins: Wolverine. These greedy and narrow minded people at Twentieth Century Fox have their production crews in chains and their crappy wire work ready. So I am very worried, and would not even care about this movie were it not for the trilogy's original director coming on board.
