Alien Remake – In Space No-One Can Hear You Scream “Why?!”
To some people great films are like really annoying spots – they just can’t be left alone.
So it seems that another classic of its genre, Alien, is to join a long list of recent remakes and reboots which have been milked of their creative puss.
But this might not just be the hatchet job that has Alien fans quaking in their boots, as it has emerged that Ridley Scott, brother Tony and Michael Costigan are attached as producers and Carl Rinsch, who has previously worked on commercials and music videos, is slated to direct.
Rumour also has it that rather than being a simple, pointless remake or reboot this is to be an origins tale.
So fear not, you may well end up being scared again.
