Ridley Scott's Alien Getting A Prequel By Commercial Director Carl Erik Rinsch

Sounds like Ridley Scott wasn't playing around when he said he wanted to get back into the Alien-filming business. Because rumor has it, there's already a new director in the running.

Bloody Disgusting is reporting that Carl Erik Rinsch is poised to take over directing the Alien origins feature that Ridley Scott, Michael Costigan and Tony Scott are all involved in. No idea who he is really, and if you can judge a man based on his short commercial work, but what he has directed is pretty stunning. Check out the clips.

Here are a few of our favorite commercials from the director (thanks for pointing out the evolution of technology, Slashfilm).
