    Re: Ridley Scott to direct Alien Remake/Prequel/Whatever?!

    Body of Lies (2008) mediocre
    American Gangster (2007) good
    A Good Year (2006) didnt see it.
    Kingdom of Heaven (2005) ?theatrical - boring / extended - good
    Matchstick Men (2003) loved it
    Black Hawk Down (2001) great.
    Hannibal (2001) good
    Gladiator (2000) ?good
    G.I. Jane (1997) fair
    White Squall (1996) loved it
    1492: Conquest of Paradise (1992) never saw it
    Thelma & Louise (1991)? saw it but really dont remember so mediocre i guess
    Black Rain (1989/I) never saw it
    Someone to Watch Over Me (1987) never saw it
    Legend (1985) hated it (only saw DC)
    ?Blade Runner (1982) legendary

    I guess the way I see it is, if anybody is allowed to mess up an alien sequel, its the man that started it.

    Re: Ridley Scott to direct Alien Remake/Prequel/Whatever?!

    If he does the prequel, it is certain that he will get into the story of the mysterious "space jockey", as he had discussed in the Alien commentary when he talked about doing a prequel (but Fox ended up going with AvP instead)
    This character may very well be the main character... but too bad we already know their fate

    Ridley Scott:
    "It's a brand new box of tricks," said Sir Ridley. "We know what the road map is, and the screenplay is now being put on paper. The prequel will be a while ago. It's very difficult to put a year on Alien, but [for example] if Alien was towards the end of this century, then the prequel story will take place thirty years prior."
    "Always in motion is the future."

    Alien Remake/Prequel/Whatever?!

    http://www.worstpreviews.com/headlin...0#ixzz0lv6BH0H

    MTV News had the chance to speak to director Ridley Scott about the prequel to his 1979 sci-fi classic "Alien." In his response, Scott revealed several major plot details.

    "As we speak, I've got a pile of pages next to me; it's like the fourth draft," he said about the status of the project. "We're not dreaming it up anymore. We know what the story is. We're actually making the film. I've already got people working graphically on designs."

    Scott continued: "It's set in 2085, about 30 years before Sigourney [Weaver's character Ellen Ripley]. It's fundamentally about going out to find out 'Who the hell was that Space Jockey?' The guy who was sitting in the chair in the alien vehicle — there was a giant fellow sitting in a seat on what looked to be either a piece of technology or an astronomer's chair. And our man [Tom Skerritt as Captain Dallas] climbs up and says 'There's been an explosion in his chest from the inside out — what was that?' I'm explaining who the space jockeys were."

    He said that the Weyland-Yutani company has yet to be formed. "Weyland hasn't joined Yutani yet, so they go and see Weyland," Scott explained. "[The film] is about the discussion of terraforming — taking planets and planetoids and balls of earth and trying to terraform, seed them with the possibilities of future life."

    Regarding Weaver's participation, Scott said: "It will be before she was born! [But] the main character will be a woman."

    He added that the alien will have to be updated. "I have to design — or redesign — earlier versions of what these elements are that led to the thing that catapults out of the egg, the face-hugger. I don't want to repeat it. The alien in a sense, as a shape, is worn out."

    Finally, Scott said that the plan is to have the prequel in theaters by end of 2011 or find the best date in 2012.

    Will it really spoils major things if I read this article?

    Indeed.
    It sounds interesting and very promising. I like that he don't want to repeat himself.

    "[The film] is about the discussion of terraforming"
    I hope it will not turn into "SW prequels poltical bore" though...

    "The Duellists" - great movie by Sir Ridley, often overlooked by various experts in the work of Scott. Particularly since it was because of it that RS got to direct Alien.

    Re: Alien Prequel [2011/2012]

    I'm definitely intrigued by the prospect, but very cautious. It does look like we'll finally get an answer as to why the company gave Ash the orders they did, that along with the 'Space Jockey' are the two biggest questions of the original.

    I am a little nervous about his stated intent to change up the form of the Aliens owing to them being overdone. I disagree with the issue. Yes, the franchise has been overdone, or more correctly improperly done. No, we won't have the same suspence we had in the original, or the same type that Spielberg took advantage of in Jaws, but that doesn't mean you have to recreate the wheel. If you change the appearance of them, particularly the seed pods you begin to stray from what seems to me, canon. But this is just speculation.

    Also, for the record:

    Body of Lies (2008) didnt see it.
    American Gangster (2007) bit long-winded, might benefit from a FE, but pretty solid.
    A Good Year (2006) Watched 5 minutes, more than enough for me. Formula drivel.
    Kingdom of Heaven (2005) ?didn't see it
    Matchstick Men (2003) Meh.. OK but not particularly memorable.
    Black Hawk Down (2001) great.
    Hannibal (2001) didn't see it.
    Gladiator (2000) ?Great.
    G.I. Jane (1997) didn't see it because it looked cartoony
    White Squall (1996) Really loved this.
    1492: Conquest of Paradise (1992) Avoided like the plague
    Thelma & Louise (1991)? good the first time (agree).
    Black Rain (1989/I) cartoony (agree).
    Someone to Watch Over Me (1987) didn't see.
    Legend (1985) Tom Cruise? really? (agree, but I still have a soft spot for it)
    ?Blade Runner (1982) Freaking Phenomenal, Legendary and Ahead of its time.
