No i've read the article in Bloody Discusting too,and they are very good at getting inside news.My first reaction is NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!,but if this is a new story the one Sir Scott was hoping to film,IE the Orgion of Alien then just maybe this might work,but if it's a bloody reboot of this classic,i'll vote with my feet and plastic fantasic,it will be a big NO!!!!

Well, we don't need an origin for the Alien, it was the mistery that was so great and fun about it, so I wasn't happy about that either.

I say remake it, remake everything. It's gonna happen sooner or later, just let it be done with.

Remake Terminator, Aliens, Ghostbusters, Back to The Future, Robocop, any film that already works.

Will they please leave ALIEN alone,the AVP films are at least watchable,but CGI destroys any form of suspense (bar Cloverfield).AAARGH,how do I get out of this chicken shit outfit?

They are now saying its a prequel which sounds like it will be a reboot in all but name.

Why not just make an Alien movie in the universe already established?

Rothman seems hellbent on destroying everything that once made Fox so successful.

While it's understandable to be annoyed if the suits in Hollywood decide to reboot/remake/"reimagine" your favourite film, but you don't have to watch it. You still have the original. That said, this seems to be a pretty poor idea, though a prequel is more appealing than a remake. Arg hit the nail on the head when he said Rothman seems rather intent on making a sublime cockup of all of the good stuff Fox did already.

All anyone wanted was Aliens on Earth and Fox shafted all of us with the dreary AvP movies. There is no hope for these kinda pictures now. Which is ironic sort of.

I honestly don't see the point, Alien doesn't look dated, the effects are incredible, it's still scary as hell. There's no need for it

Whatever the film turns out to be I'm hoping with the Scott bros as producers they will keep some creative control over it rather than Fox! Also Rinsch may have done some pretty amazing tv adverts but I hope he can do more than create some nice visuals! The franchise has lost it's way and it needs to get back to the nightmarish psychological terror of the first film rather than the more action orientated sequels and please NO CGI! The concept of the first film was 'sometimes what you don't see is scarier than what you do see'! Bring H. R. Giger back to the franchise to inject some of that unsettling set and creature design from the original movie!

Here we go again. Another classic that shouldn't be touched and which still stands up anyway, another pointless remake. The excuse Hollywood always gives for this is always that there's a whole new generation who don't know the originals, well why don't they go and discover them? I own plenty of old films on dvd like the 1930's version of King Kong, The Third Man, Hammer Horror movies etc which were made well before i was born but i discovered them all through tv or through reading Empire (when they raved about an old classic being re-released on dvd or whatever it always made me want to check it out). Unfortunately, most films today are made for extremely thick teenagers who only go to see the biggest, most hyped movie of the week, usually a crap comedy like Disaster Movie, and have no regard for older classics or cult favourites. These are the kind of people who think that the origianl Star Wars trilogy's crap because the special effects aren't up to date or that Evil Dead 2's not meant to be funny and unfortunately, movie's are being aimed at them, not us. There's never been a time like this in the history of cinema where absolutely everything that's gone before has been remade, it's just plain shocking. As for the Alien remake, anybody who thinks Ridley Scott's involvement means we can be more optimistic about the whole thing, well let's not forget that John Carpenter was involved in the remake of The Fog and look how that turned out. Even if it's not a straight remake but an origin story, that's just as disastrous, as that would spoil the mystery that makes the aliens so creepy.
