The "Prometheus" trilogy

...Fox is remaking Alien.

Yes...

ALIEN!!!


:mad: :mad: :mad:


Fox is said to be digging into its back catalogue once again after its remake of Predator to unleash a new version of Ridley Scott's Alien.

According to BloodyDisgusting.com, the plan for the new movie is to stick very much to the original concept, which saw the crew of a spaceship investigating a transmission from another planet and discovering an alien that had perfectly evolved to destroy mankind.

Michael Costigan, Ridley Scott and Tony Scott are said to be attached to produce the remake, and commercial/music video director Carl Rinsch will be at the helm and attempting to fill Ridley Scott's sizable shoes.

Of course this is still in the rumor stages, but then so was Rodriguez's version of Predators.


ARGH!

Website Collider confirmed today with Tony Scott the exclusive breaking news that Carl Rinsch will be getting behind the camera for 20th Century Fox's reboot of the Alien franchise started back in '79 by Ridley Scott.

It was also confirmed that the reboot is being pinned as a "prequel" (even though we all know damn well it's still a reboot).

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-ass 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.

Sometimes I wonder what will happen when there will be no classic left for remaking...will they go for 2nd remaking (I'm not sure what should we call it then)?

It was only a matter of time. As much as it sucks, this one doesn't surprise me in the slightest.

This defies belief.


:mad: :mad: :( :(


I was having a good day until I read this. There have been so many films made which are shit enough to warrant remaking, why cant they do them? Alien is one of the most perfect films ever made, dont fuck with it!!!


If its a prequel then the only thing they can do is the story of what happens on the crashed giants ship before Dallas and co. discover it.
