‘Alien’ Prequel Coming Our Way?

Rumors have been spreading about 20th Century Fox possibly being interested in relaunching their Alien franchise. These rumors followed on the heels of news items claiming Robert Rodriguez would be doing a relaunch with 20th Century Fox‘s other sci-fi franchise, Predator.

While there has so far been no confirmation from Fox directly or through any venues one of the guys over at Collider managed to talk to Tony Scott at the press conference for his latest film Taking Pelham 1 2 3 on the subject. It turns out Scott-Free Productions is indeed producing a remake with director Carl Rinsch helming. They hope to start shooting the film, which is meant to act as a prequel to Ridley Scott’s original 1979 Alien, by the end of the year. For more on the short interview go here.

Hmmm, who would be a great young Ripley?
