Variety have confirmed that Ridley Scott is going to direct the upcoming Alien Prequel movie. Fox have also hired Jon Spaihts to write the prequel. The studio was impressed by his work on two space thrillers called Passengers and Shadow 19.

Twentieth Century Fox is resuscitating its “Alien” franchise. The studio has hired Jon Spaihts to write a prequel that has Ridley Scott attached to return as director. Spaihts got the job after pitching the studio and Scott Free, which will produce the film.

The film is set up to be a prequel to the groundbreaking 1979 film that Scott directed. It will precede that film, in which the crew of a commercial towing ship returning to Earth is awakened and sent to respond to a distress signal from a nearby planetoid. The crew discovers too late that the signal generated by an empty ship was meant to warn them.

This is excellent news about Ridley Scott returning. Thanks to dDave, Aiden, Alien Genesis, Kirkempk, Clayton, and Giger_Incubator for the news.

Finally it looks like Fox have finally pulled their fingers out of their arses. It's only taken them 12 years and the bludgeoning of the Alien franchise to do so.

That's good, Scott is Directing as well as Producing the film.   ;D    Spoon What's Predator got to do with this film, its an Alien film NOT an AvP film.

Things I want-   -James Cameron to have atleast something to do with it- it would be so badass to see Scott and Cameron shake hands and put a sick Alien movie out!   -Colonial Marines; I don't care how they get in there, but I just want them there.  -Nathan Fillion; he is one of the best sci-fi actors today- it's hard to explain why, but watch him and you'd see.  -Suits and Mechanics over CGI for the Alien/Aliens; it was so much more convincing that the stupid, shitty AvP ones!   Things I DON'T want to see...  -A CGI overload; that's a given.  -A living Space Jockey; I know everybody wants it- but seriously- how would you fit one of those in without completely taking away from the Xenomorphs? Think about it; it would ruin tention, and mystery.
