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

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.

I was kinda joking about "game over" - it would be dumm - but I'm just happy that they've refound a bit of that Thing-ness of funny people who care about each other. Not all Alien movies need to be like that (remember I like Prometheus!) but it's nice (for me) to see

Ha, me too. Once autocorrect gave me this totally weird word that I googled, and it turned out to be some obscure regional Russian dialect. And I thought, 1) why would autocorrect assume I was typing this word that has probably been typed minimally throughout history, let alone in English? And then I thought, 2) if anyone was ever going to type this obscure Russian dialect, they were likely going to type it correctly the first time.

https://io9.gizmodo.com/ridley-scott-keeps-trying-to-revive-gladiator-but-he-p-1793199157

Alien: Covenant wasn’t the only supernatural sequel Ridley Scott discussed at this year’s SXSW. He’s also eager to make another Gladiator film. Only problem is... the main character is dead. But Scott said he knows how to bring him back, and I’m hoping it’s because a bunch of Roman gods want him to kill Jesus. Seriously, that’s a real script, people.

this isn't hard, people - pretty sure the black goo can bring people back from the dead. failing that, maximus could always return as a xenomorph. lot of dramatic possibilities there and i think it'd answer the 'big questions' we all had after the first film. at the least it now seems clear that 'oromotheud' is a roman name, or perhaps thracian. all my fanboy hairs are tingling - i'm ready to start camping out for opening night! i'm sure i speak for tracer on this also.

Ned Raggett, Sunday, 12 March 2017 22:06 (one week ago) Permalink

I'm looking forward to seeing Russell Crowe play both a xenomorph gladiator and Robin Hood. The biggest outstanding question at this point is whether the black goo could work to bring back Thelma and/or Louise, or whether it'll be retconned that the '66 Thunderbird was actually an early model of the flying 'Spinners' from Blade Runner. There's also a fan theory going around in the last forty-eight seconds that, possible spoilers, it'll turn out the black goo was actually the 'black rain' from the film of the same title. Not sure how I feel about that one but I'm confident Scott can make it work since clearly it is something he feels really passionately about.

To be honest, a part of me is starting to worry that he failed to learn anything from the botched launch of DC's universe (sorry, BvS:DoJ fans!) and is trying to do too much with one movie. You have to build to these things organically. Still, Tracer and I are super stoked to finally see the factory where the downed Black Hawk was assembled - I mean that's a story we've all been wanting to see for the last sixteen years, and it's essentially criminal that Scott refused to answer these nagging questions for so long.
