For the Aliens remake, Pat O'Brien can be the Paul Reiser character. Or he can just be the chest burster in this one.

4 years pass...

I want to cry.

http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/news/16328

In January we broke the news that Robert Rodriguez's Troublemaker Studios would be producing a reboot of Predator for 20th Century Fox. Our regular tipster was proven correct once again as the story was confirmed in April. Our tipster even scooped us on who would be penning the remake, now titled Predators.

So Mr. Anonymous is back again. And being that 20th Century Fox is remaking Predator, it doesn't surprise me at all that Fox is also going back to their catalog for a reboot of Ridley Scott's Alien.

What our tipster informed us is that - opposite the Predator situation - the plan is to stick with the original concept of only one alien on the ship.

Michael Costigan, Ridley Scott and even Tony Scott are all on board to produce and have tapped Carl Rinsch to get beyond the camera and bring a new Ripley to the big screen.

Who is Carl Rinsch? I'm being told he's a commercial/music video director and does work for Scott Free Productions, who is also producing the remake.

In the original, the terror begins when the crew of a spaceship investigates a transmission from a desolate planet, and discovers a life form that is perfectly evolved to annihilate mankind. One by one, each crew member is slain until only Ripley is left, leading to an explosive conclusion that sets the stage for its stunning sequel, Aliens (my favorite film of all-time).

We'll keep you posted on any updates, but that's what we got for you this evening. Remember to take it as rumor until confirmed as many projects change through the course of development.

I figured this would happen, being that after all the bad sequels and AVP flicks the only logical way to milk the series was to go back to square one. But it doesn't hurt any less.

Vokuhila (latebloomer), Thursday, 28 May 2009 17:45 (6 years ago) Permalink

What is the purpose of this?

Predator, who cares. It was stupid to begin with and can probably only improve in Rodriguez's hands. But Alien was absolutely perfect as is. Waaaaaah!

Johnny Fever, Thursday, 28 May 2009 17:45 (6 years ago) Permalink

However, if Pat O'Brien is actually cast as the Alien this will become a must-see

It could be like a more tragic Top Gun, where a fresh young facehugger falls in love with his instructor, a human woman. She dies in an accident, but a hundred years later he meets her great-graddaughter in the events of the first Alien.

Why is it that every movie franchise is all about remakes and reboots these days? Doesn't anybody believe in sequels anymore? Personally, I would've wanted to know what happened after the ending of Alien 4, but apparently no one else cares.

Prometheus got me hooked on Alien. I watched it again with my OH and she loved it, then we went back and watched Alien through Alien 3 and loved those. In retrospect Prometheus only suffers from an ostensibly nonsensical plotline, but it would be amazing if this new film went on to explain some of the ostensibly random events in Prometheus. (It won't)

That's a big "only." Also there's no way the 15-foot tall petrified creature in Alien is the same as the 8-foot tall albino in a suit in Prometheus. The OG Space Jockey was supposed to appear so large in proportion to humans that Scott had children in spacesuits used in the long shots.

Scott is obviously #3 or lower in the list of people involved in the creation of the ALIEN universe.

Kinda hope Dan O'Bannon's estate puts out a hit on him.

Alien: Covenant will apparently be the first of three more prequels, Ridley Scott now claims in new interview filled with garbled Ridleyspeak:

"So I’m now going to the next one, which is the next evolution directly connected with the first one, which was this Shaw, when he replaced Michael Fassbender in two pieces and we’ll kind of pick it up there and it will evolve. When that’s finished there’ll be another one and then another one which will gradually drive into the back entrance of the film in 1979.”

From a strict narrative sense, Prometheus is riddled with every conceivable kind of inconsistency and logical lapse. But you could say that about Lynch's films, or Jodorowsky (and Aeon Flux). To read such works literally is missing the point.
