Alien rebooted?

Consider this yet another one that MAY be added to the long list of movies being remade or as the industry is labeling them “rebooted”. The hot rumor of the day that because of the sucess of Star Trek, which “rebooted” the franchise and how Predator is getting remade (by Robert Rodriguez–which, by the way, I have no problem with at all. At least its in good hands) and also, Cliffhanger may be getting remade too, this is just another one added to the list. I’m not sure if I like this, why can’t they just give us a good sequel or something? Seriously. Do the people behind the reboots think that just by starting all over again people will forget about the bad sequels? I mean, if they haven’t perfected a sequel, how do they expect to make a good reboot? Just because it worked with some other movies doesn’t mean that it’ll work for others.

Rinsch Helming An “Alien” Reboot?

Rinsch Helming An "Alien" Reboot?Music video director Carl Erik Rinsch is rumored to be helming a potential and totally unnecessary reboot/prequel to the “Alien” franchise for 20th Century Fox reports Bloody Disgusting.

Story details are unknown but sources say the idea is to return to the formula of the first film (one alien, one ship) and the film could be a non-Ripley involved film set before the events on the Nostromo in Ridley Scott’s 1979 “Alien” to avoid both continuity problems and the scorn of the franchise’s fans who’d be very vocally disapproving of a straight up remake.

Sources also claim that Michael Costigan, Ridley Scott and Tony Scott are all on board to produce. At last report back in April, Scott was said to be “toying around with the idea” of another “Alien” film.

Fox’s planned reboot of the “Predator” film franchise with Robert Rodriguez announced the other month, combined with the successful relaunch of the “Star Trek” film franchise which also kicked off with its first film in 1979, has understandably led credibility to such a rumor.

None of the principals or the studio has commented on the story yet so take it as rumor for now.

    • Oh I agree totally, I mean it worked for Batman and James Bond, now Star Trek. One could even say that it worked for Halloween and Friday the 13th. But when is enough enough?
