Rumors No More: Ridley Scott Will Direct Next 2 Alien Prequels

Over the past few decades there have been rumours floating around tinsel town of Ridley Scott’s return to the Alien universe, let us not forget that he did direct the iconic first Alien movie.  At last, rumours of his return to this universe are no more.  Here is what Ridley Scott had to say regarding another Alien movie in a recent article in The Independent:

“The film will be really tough, really nasty. It’s the dark side of the moon. We are talking about gods and engineers. Engineers of space. And were the aliens designed as a form of biological warfare? Or biology that would go in and clean up a planet?”

Okay, as vague as that statement is, it does sound intriguing.  Since the film is a prequel (one of two prequels, that is) I’m assuming that none of the original cast is going to be called back, which in my opinion is a good thing.  If anyone is going to bring back the elements to a franchise that has run itself into the ground (AVP, AVP: Requiem), Ridley Scott is without a doubt, the man to do it.  The only questions that remains, is will Scott’s frequent collaborator, Russell Crow be involved, and will there be any Predators?  Please let the answer be no to at least one of these questions.

Guess it’s time to revisit the Alien quadrilogy.
