Ridley Scott to Direct ‘Alien’ Prequel

alienIt makes me ridiculously happy to report this. Ridley Scott is returning to the Alien franchise as director.

20th Century Fox has hired scribe Jon Spaihts to write a prequel to the 1979 film that Ridley Scott directed. The film tells the story of a commercial towing ship that responds to a distress signal from a nearby planet. They discover too late that the signal was coming from an empty ship was actually a warning.

There have been three sequels since the original Alien, and it was the pitch for an Alien reboot by Spaihts that got Scott interested in the project.

I cannot wait.
