Submission + - Ridley Scott involved with Alien remake (

bowman9991 writes: "Whether it's a prequel, a remake or an origins story it appears there's a new Alien movie on the cards with Ridley Scott set to produce.Fox apparently wants to go back and use Scott's original science fiction horror classic to relaunch the franchise in the same way Star Trek was recently reborn with J. J. Abrams. Reportedly the plan is to stick with the original concept of only one alien on the ship. Fox Co-chairman Tom Rothman gave the impression the new Alien relaunch wouldn't go ahead without Ridley's involvement."
