Looks like this new Alien movie is definitely happening. Collider caught up with Ridley Scott’s brother, Tony Scott. He confirmed what Bloody-Disgusting revealed a few days ago. Carl Rinsch is going to direct a prequel to Alien.
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.
He also says he expects shooting to begin before the end of the year. You can check out some of Carl Rinsch’s commercials on /Film. Some of them do look pretty good. Thanks to Dusk and Coolness Cool for the news.
