Well, the word “sigh” comes to mind. Following on with Predators, Fox are going even further by remaking Alien according to Bloody Disgusting. What a lovely 30th anniversary gift. Thanks guys:
“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.”
I suppose that Ridley being on board is a good thing but…damn. I do not want this. You can read more details over at Bloody Disgusting. Thanks to Zwecky for the news.
EDIT: They updated their article with: We just heard from a separate reliable source that Fox is possibly working on an origins story, as opposed to a straight-up remake. Still…
