Alien Prequel is stalled

|

Somehow you just knew that FOX would screw up a good thing. Ridley Scott wants to make an Alien prequel. You’d think FOX would just let him be and let him do whatever he wants. But no. It’s now obvious that FOX wants to continue to run Alien into the ground. There’s a story over at Sky Movies that says the upcoming prequel is stalled due to disagreements that Scott has with FOX. Apparently Scott wants to make a big-budget ($250 million) hard R movie, while FOX wants a much cheaper PG-13 movie (think AVP). I think Ripley said it best; “Did IQs just drop sharply while I was away?” Sigh.
