“Alien” prequel announced

scott_ridleyTwentieth Century Fox has announced that it returning to the “ALIEN” franchise by hiring Jon Spaihts to write a prequel to the original 1979 film.  Ridley Scott is also currently attached to direct (I’m having a quiet squee moment).

Although Mr Spaihts has many projects in the pipline, we have yet to see his work but according to the article, he has become a “go-to guy for space thrillers” and was awarded the project after a pitch to both the studio and Sir Ridley’s Scott Free production c0mpany.

No date has yet been set for release, but I think we’ll know about this one waaay in advance.
