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

four 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 (seven 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 (seven years ago) Permalink

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

What's that company that makes knockoff movies to coincide with releases? I have this theory that the only way to stop this revival madness is to saturate the market with so many degraded versions that any public appetite for them would be obliterated. ALIEN FANFICTION TO THE RESCUE

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.

That still is kinda interesting in a very small way - Scott coming in and doing his version of Cameron's Aliens is a pleasant reversal. Certainly this is already one of the weirdest series in cinema history in terms of directorial handoffs and all that. The downside is that it means watching Ridley Scott trying to do Aliens which I'm not sure is something that would have ever played to his strengths, and certainly doesn't with Ridley Scott 2016.

So this is officially a sequel to Prometheus? I thought these movies were to have very limited connection to the actual 'alien' side of the story, I guess that was just Prometheus then and we've now abandoned the plot around the big weird looking guys.
