Collider snagged a few minutes with Tony Scott over the weekend and was able to confirm that yes, the next “Alien” project will be a prequel and Carl Rinsch is attached:

Collider: 20th Century Fox is talking about remaking or redoing the original Alien. What’s going on with that?

Tony Scott: Yes, Carl Rinsch is going to do the prequel to Alien. He’s one of our directors at our company.

Collider: When do you envision this film getting in front of cameras?

Tony: Hopefully the end of the year.

Collider: Will it be a summer of 2011 movie?

Tony: Honestly, I don’t know.

So we might not be seeing “Alien 0” until 2012 and I swear, if they call it something stupid like “Alien 0” I won’t go see it. Considering this project will be coming out of 20th Century Fox we can rest assured that the chance of it being junk is pretty good. Let’s hope three years is enough for Ridley Scott to set things straight over there.
