Fox wants Ridley?

06.09.2009

Ridley Scott When Tony Scott let it slip that not only is Fox rebooting the ALIEN franchise, which his brother Ridley launched, but they were doing it with one of their company directors Carl Rinsch, some of us weren't the only ones to ask "say what?" on hearing this because "Hollywood Insider" is reporting that Fox isn't having this whole unknown commercial director rebooting an iconic franchise. They mention, "Sources at Fox, however, tell EW that the studio is not interested in greenlighting a prequel unless Scott himself directs." While Tony is pretty supportive of Rinsch taking the reins of the franchise, it may not be enough to get the film made. Which may not be a bad thing. Let's leave at least one iconic franchise alone.

Yeah

Exactly, Silverload, although when i heard that report a few years ago i didnt believe it was true at all, (denial?) and im not sure how true this story is either, but if both are then he should do exactly that.

Scott & Cameron both offered Fox a chance to revive the franchise together. Fox gave them the middle finger and made AVP instead. Scott should return the favor and give them the middle finger this time.

Could work

Most everyone here I would say is understandably adverse to [link] but I wouldn't mind seeing Ridley himself coming back to put a grace note finish on the franchise he started with the 1st film.

It may be the only way a new Alien would be anything other than a (PG-13) piece of shit, if he himself directs.

But the man is going to be 80 or so soon, is he not? Best get cracking.

Um...

They say this now, but in 2013 when AVPIII is released, and actually loses money at the b.o,...and so forth.

There is nowhere for this frnachise to go. Going back to the beginning would be pointless. Let it rest in peace

i think a bigger story is FOX turning down an opportunity to make another shitty Alien film for a possible quality product.

Better then some unknown

I would rather a great film maker like Ridley Scott make this film then some unknown (eg. AVP). This movie doesent need another bad film made by some hack.

That picture.


What people don't realise is that Ridley was getting a blowjob when that photo was taken.

That's how awesome he is.
