‘Alien’ Prequel Hitting A Few Snags

Interesting bit of news. Although, I don’t think I’d like to see Ripley as the hero for an Alien prequel, it just wouldn’t make sense. I hope that if Ripley does return, it’s in a minor or, at best, supporting character capacity.

The filmmakers and Fox, the studio that owns the rights to the franchise, seem to have conflicting ideas about who should direct. Scott plans to produce and had handpicked commercial director Carl Erik Rinsch — whose ads for German electronics company Saturn are known for their futuristic flourishes — to make his feature debut. Rinsch’s selection is complicated by the rumor that he’s romantically involved with Scott’s daughter, Jordan, also a commercial helmer. (Reps for both Jordan Scott and Rinsch did not respond to calls to confirm.) Sources at Fox, however, tell EW that the studio is not interested in greenlighting a prequel unless Scott himself directs. Scott and his reps didn’t respond to calls for comment.
The studio and the Scotts are looking at returning to the original concept of just one alien creature and casting a new Ripley, played in the films by Sigourney Weaver.
