It looks like the conflict between director and studio is starting already:
“Ridley Scott is at odds with 20th Century Fox, the major studios behind the project over budgetary and creative differences, according to sources close to the production. It would seem Scott wants a budget of around $250m to make it a sci-fi spectacular, and is also pushing for an 18-rated level of violence and horror. Fox, however, don’t plan on investing anywhere near that sum, and are keen to get a 15 rating to maximise the audience appeal.”
This is the second time we know of that Fox have intervened with the Prequel, demanding Ridley direct it. We can only hope this isn’t another Alien3. Check out the original article at ScriptFlags. Thanks to Richard Daborn for the link.
