Make of this what you will. I’m still digesting it:
“Reports are coming in that the co-creator of Lost has just turned in his script for the Untitled Alien Prequel for director Ridley Scott and the executives at 20th Century Fox love it. Why do they love it? Well, because Scott originally budgeted the film around $150 million and Lindelof’s script has a distinct lack of large action set pieces, thereby bringing that number down. Plus the script reportedly has a more PG-13 edge in terms of language and off camera violence – much like the original 1979 film.”
I would have thought they’d have realised how the public and fandom reacted to toned down Alien films after AvP. On the plus side we’ll see the return of Colonial Marines with Natalie Portman as a potential lead. Check out the entire article at SlashFilm. Thanks to Jigsaw85.
