Nightmare Asylum

Yeah, this description definitely feels less "remake" (as in, what King Kong '05 is to King Kong '33) and more either "reboot" (what Kong: Skull Island is to King Kong '33) or partial sequel (what Terminator: Dark Fate to The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day).

Though it does also leave open the possibility, since it does involve a clone, that it could be totally in-continuity with everything that already exists and be set after Alien: Resurrection.

All that being said, I feel kind of silly putting even this limited amount of thinking into a poorly written article from a tabloid. :D

Make it a Disney Musical PG-13 With Emma Watson singing with the Xenomorpth... Sounds about right.

Xenomorph technically has two mouthes - so he is counted as two singers

I love Emma Watson. She has The most Beautiful Face. But I hate remakes. I prefer Ridley Scott Directing Emma Watson in ALIEN 5 or PROMETHEUS 2 or ALIENS 2 or COVENANT 2

Imagine it actually being called "ALIENS 2".  And imagine Ridley Scott directing it.  :)

Thank you for the nightmare fuel, I was about to go to bed.

Not interested in a reboot nor remake of ALIEN. As far as I'm concerned, the film is as close to perfection as humanly possible. But, if this film does get made, I hope it leads to the rest of the films being released in a lavish 4K set.

Sigourney Weaver as Ripley, is irreplaceable.


judge death

Didnt disney say they wouldnt release 4K movies or indicating physical media of alien franchise some time ago? I doubt it if thats true and happens, sadly.

SiL

There was a rumour Disney was abandoning 4K/physical media, but then they said "No, we're still doing it for properties we deem it suitable for".

Take that as you will.

SM

I take it as 'Don't hold out for a 4K edition of The Cat From Outer Space'.

Give me 4K Fantasia or give me death*

*not actual death, just ... metaphorical death. Like ennui or something.

Agreed.  The only thing about the film that could really stand to be changed is updating the technology of all the human equipment....

...and that would ruin the film.

Ridley Scott kind of explained this. The Characters of ALIEN are normal and low level people so low level tech makes sense. The Characters of PROMETHEUS are Billionaires so High Level Tech makes sense
