Ridley Scott Wants To Remind Us Who's Your Alien Daddy

When Ridley Scott asks to take another turn at Alien, we should all back away slowly and thank our lucky stars Tarantino didn't get his hands on it first.

There's been talk of bringing back the character of Ripley before, sans alien. But the news from IESB is that this new movie will be an Alien prequel. Fox co-chairman Tom Rothman explained the idea...

There's been some talk. Ridley Scott, Ridley is right now working on Robin Hood, but I think he's toying with the idea and that would be great for us. I mean, it's always been a matter of, really, if you can get the originator to do it that would be the greatest thing, so I've got my fingers crossed, all of them.

I'm not sure how realistic this actually is as, Ridley is supposedly already working on Forever War and Brave New World. But who knows what will come first, after he's finished with his merry men?
