According to EW, that’s what 20th Century Fox wants. And why the hell shouldn’t you want it? Entertainment Weekly is reporting via The Playlist that 20th Century Fox may have some qualms about letting Carl Rinsch direct the newly announced Alien prequel, or whatever the hell it is. While the Scotts may have given Rinsch their approval, sources at Fox tell EW that they are only interested in greenlighting the picture if Ridley Scott directs. Is it possible Tom Rothman finally had a good idea? Quite frankly, everyone would love to see Scott direct this himself and not just hand it over. Hopefully, the EW article will go up soon. And maybe we’ll actually get a good, scary Alien movie again.
