In case you hadn't seen this, Ridley Scott is going to direct a prequel to A L I E N! YES.
http://www.horrorsquad.com/2009/07/3...i-e-n-prequel/We've been hearing a lot about a reboot / remake / prequel of the original A L I E N for quite some time now, but things have picked up in the last several weeks, and the latest news is actually pretty surprising: According to Variety, no less than Ridley Scott himself will be directing the prequel, and if I need to remind you that Mr. Scott directed the first A L I E N, then I think you may be at the wrong horror blog. The screenwriter for the flick will be Jon Spaihts, who's clearly one of those "mega-busy but untested" scribes. The guy has no less than five scripts in various stages of development, including Children of Mars and Shadow 19.
Right here is where you'd expect me to flip out like a geek and rant loudly because A L I E N is my all-time favorite film and how dare they make a prequel and yadda yadda ... but frankly I'm pretty thrilled that Ridley Scott is attached. Mainly because I think he's an excellent filmmaker, but also because his hectic schedule may prevent this prequel from arriving any time soon. More info as we get it!

Are you sure which side of the glass you are on?
Cool, that will be a good one............
I wonder if it would be about the species itself – where they came from, how they gained the technology for space travel, how they came to crash land on that planet in the first place…
Or how they’re the result of a failed genetics experiment gone horribly awry, put on a ship & jettisoned into the outer reaches of space, only to mutate with native species of the planet they crashed on, thus becoming the nasty critters we have come to know & love.
The meaning of life
To be aware of our own existence
To understand the world and universe around us
To use science to appreciate the intricacies and immensity of creation
To come to realize there’s something more after we pass from this existence
To understand that the creator chose to have things play out at random
To realize that it is the intention of the creator that we experience his creation first hand, so as to appreciate it more

My mom was pregnant with me when my dad took her to see it with my future god parents (who were also pregnant with their first). Both my mom and my god mother walked out of the movie when the Alien popped out of that dude. Maybe that is why I love all of these movies.
Now my wife is pregnant and everytime I see a commercial for Alien or any of the other Alien movies, I joke around telling her that there is an Alien in there just waiting to pop out. She hates me.

Very exciting prospect.

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.
