Possible Alien Prequel Movie in the works.

From and confirmed by my Fox reps.
Cameron, director of 1986’s “Aliens”, went cold on the idea of a new “Alien” sequel after catching the disastrous “Alien Vs. Predator”. According to big Jim, Fox essentially ruined the series in one full swoop by teaming slimy big-beak with the dreadlocked hunter. Sigourney Weaver was also a lot keener on doing another “Alien” movie before Fox combined the “Predator” franchise with it.

Ridley Scott has had an on-again off-again on-again love affair with doing a new “Alien” movie though – and unlike Cameron, never denounced his interest. Fox chairman Tom Rothman tells IESB that the studio is looking at doing a prequel to 1979’s “Alien” – which means no Sigourney Weaver – and Scott could be involved.

“There’s been some talk”, says Rothman, speaking at the “X-Men Origins : Wolverine” Premiere in Arizona. “Ridley Scott, Ridley is right now working on Robin Hood, but I think he’s toying with the idea and that would be great for us. I mean, it’s always been a matter of, really, if you can get the originator to do it that would be the greatest thing, so I’ve got my fingers crossed, all of them.”

Last week it was announced Fox were rebooting the “Predator” series with a possible remake/sequel to be written and produced by Robert Rodriguez… so we probably shouldn’t be surprised the studio’s decided to resuscitate “Alien”.
