Exclusive: Tony Scott Confirms Carl Rinsch is Directing New ALIEN Movie. And it’s a PREQUEL!

by     Posted 5 years, 203 days ago

alien_xenomorph_01.jpgA few days ago, Bloody-Disgusting reported that 20th century Fox was going to remake “Alien” and director Carl Rinsch would be helming the movie. Immediately fandom exploded with venom. I think one of the main reasons is that the original is a classic, and 20th Century Fox hasn’t been making films of that caliber recently.

So at today’s junket for Tony Scott’s new film “The Taking of Pelham 123″, I went up Tony after the press conference ended to ask him what was up with the remake.

The big news is he confirmed Carl Rinsch would be directing it and that it’s a prequel to his brother Ridley’s classic!

What Tony told me is after the jump:

Collider: 20th Century Fox is talking about remaking or redoing the original Alien. What’s going on with that?

alien_xenomorph_02.jpgTony Scott: Yes, Carl Rinsch is going to do the prequel to Alien. He’s one of our directors at our company.

Collider: I’m going to be blunt about this. Fox has not been doing a great job recently with their movies.  They haven’t been an artist friendly studio. Are you guys going to have some creative control and make this a kick-ass film?

Tony: Yes! But Fox is our home. They finace our production company.

Collider: And I’m very happy that you guys have the financing. But a lot of the films they’ve been doing at the studio level, they’ve been nickel and diming and not giving fandom what they want. So I guess my question for you is…are you a little nervous about reengaging the franchise or are you excited.

Tony: I’m excited cause Ridley created the original and Carl Rinsch is one of the family.

Collider: When do you envision this film getting in front of cameras?

Tony: Hopefully the end of the year.

Collider: Will it be a summer of 2011 movie?

Tony: Honestly, I don’t know.

While I wish I could give you more info, I only had moments to talk with him. Look for more “Alien” info as I get it.

    I suppose if it’s a choice between prequels or remakes in this case, I’ll take a prequel. Those often don’t work any better than a remake, but at least they’ll try a little bit and the Scotts will still be involved. But if it’s PG-13, then 20th Century Fox can suck it.

    You have got to be kidding me?! Can’t the money grabbing-idiots in Hollywood leave well enough alone? So when is the Jaws remake coming, or Gone With the Wind? How about Casablanca starring Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson? Or maybe Bladerunner starring Wil Ferrel I think I am going to be ill..

    Please leave the original alone it is one of the greatest scifi horror films ever made!Do a prequel and don’t find a way to get Ripley in it heck don’t have humans in it at all since they hadn’t ever made contact before Alien!Do something between Alien2 and Alien3!

    I’m completely tired of all of these remakes and prequels. Can Hollywood just completely NOT come up with anything original anymore? I haven’t seen an original Hollywood blockbuster since… The Matrix??

    Since the first Alien movie was about humans first contact with the aliens, what is this going to be, a Discovery special like Planet Earth only on the Alien home planet?

    Worst idea for a prequel ever.

      I really liked the first 3 Alien movies, Alien resurrection was good, but “over the top” with the storyline, the special effects were very good though, then along came Aliens v Predator which ruined the whole concept, as the 2 creatures were in totally different stories. I would like to throw forward a suggestion here, what could have happened in a 5th movie, was that the “Weyland-Yutani Corporation”, (which should have been kept) planned to seek out the home planet of the so-called “Space jockey” which was found in the 1st movie on LV-426 Imagine it, a vast spaceship is built using metals mined from other worlds. ( as nearly all of Earth’s resources have been exhausted) The “company” secretly obtained a logging device found in the derelict vessel when they had set up Hadley’s Hope in the 2nd movie, and after a lot of complex de-coding of the material in it they then set off to say “Gamma Eridani 4″, a planet 3/4 the size of Earth, hence the large statures of the “Space jockey” creatures or the “Scoplias” as they call themselves. (for instance) Will they be friendly or hostile? A new movie will have to be made to answer this question.

  • lonny

    Wasn’t AvP 1 supposed to be a prequel?

    These chaps are old and don’t care anymore. It’ll suck unless they really pay attention to the first film and build from there.

    Otherwise expect something pointless.

  • philmphan

    Come up with an alien language(s) and subtitle the whole thing and make it revolve around the alien ship that the Nostromo’s encountered. Now that I’d watch, unfortunately too few people want to “read” a movie. Meh.

    Unfortunately it’ll probably suck anyway (they should start labelling these films with “MADE FOR KID-CINEMA – GUARANTEED TO SUCK”…just look at all of the crap we’ve been given lately. The AVP movies were horrible – they just just leave the Alien franchise alone now – close the door and lock the vault before they shame it even more.

    Will this be my oft desired Alien Prequel – where an egg is brought back from South America by Conquistadors in a clay shell to keep it from hatching – only to have it stolen from the Spanish by a Vatican Monk (who is pursued by Soldiers) and dropped off in an Isolated Monastary (based on the original art for Aliens 3) where it hatches and slaughters all the monks and the Soldiers who finally catch up with the thieving monk?

  • Ray LePera

    I’d rather see a prequal than a remake. You can’t remake a classic. But I think there’s a story to be told. As we’ve seen, the crew of the Nostromo discovered an alien ship on LB427(?) over run with xenomorphs. What happened? And how will these aliens be portrayed? Maybe they’re Predators. Hopefully not Klingons or ET’s. Could be interesting or could be a dud.

  • wanker666

    The whole awesomeness of the original premise was we had to imagine where the alien ship/space jockey came from and that just added to the mystery. Now we're gonna see it in all its CGI glory with a PG13 rating. F*** no if you think any fan of Alien will watch this, Unless they are gonna come up with an incredible different premise.
    Why Ridley why???

    The death of Hollywood began with the death o the "R" rated films. Teens want action and video-type stories and that's what you get with PG-13. If I movie isn't rated "R" which non-are these days — and I mean action flicks — they will suck. Take T4 for example or Die Hard 4. If they would get back to adult stoylines with solid action and violence that isn't just plain gory Hollywood would have some fun movies. Problem is they're making a ton of money doing crap for the teens so don't expect any change. Just imagine how good "Taken" could have been if it had an "R" rating. The problem is the directors are being edited. Could you think how much Scarface would have sucked if it had been made today. It would have been worse than Indy 4.

    The good thing about this is that Ridley and Tony Scott will be involved.. What I dont understand is why a prequel? Ripley is half human and half alien and this is the perfect time to explain her roots.. the alien roots, so I think a sequel is better because you know how a prequel will end. Ripley needs to find out where her loyaly is, she needs to find the "cure" for her alien genes.. ergo looking for the Alien homeworld, getting into the roots and finding out what the creatures are all about and how they relate to the Space Jockey. I always thought of the alien's original organism to be some sort of a germ, I think the Space Jockey crashed on their planet and got infected itself, or maybe it was a "science lab" experiment gone wrong. Maybe this movie will be a paradox to a brand new level or Alien story telling we had never seen before. So be open minded about it, I am sure Ridley and Tony are feeling the pressure to deliver.. not only from 20th Century Fox but for also the fans, I am sure they wont come up with a crappy film. They are talented!

    Personally I think they should just go the whole hog and remake everything.

    I've always believed that Lawrence of Arabia would be much better if it had Ryan Reynolds and dune buggy's in it.

    The first Alien movie was near perfect the second was a damm good movie since then total rubbish. Only Alien Movie I would want to watch now is a major invasion of earth with LOTR size battles between Earths 21st centuries armies and thousands of Aliens. But I agree with most of the posts… make something original atho I so want to see that Lawerence of Arabia remake.

    Does anyone even remember the original Alien? Ash was sent to collect the lifeform, so somebody at Weyland-Yutani was aware of it's existence before the crew touched down on LV 426.

    I don't really have high hopes for any new Alien material given the utter catastrophes that were the AvP films (and Alien Resurrection), but the original film DOES lend itself to having some backstory that involves humans, aliens, and the 'alien astronaut' species as well.

    Telling a story that explains the ship crashed on LV 426 could be interesting IF done right.

    • JediTray

      No, "The Company" did not know ahead of time. It was in Ash's programming to collect and bring back any organism found of interest.

      • spacejocky

        No, Jeditray go back to star wars and leave aliens to its true fans
        Actually the company did know , thats why they placed Ash aboard
        and redirected the ship from the core systems

    I agree, telling a story of how the ship crashed on LV-426 and how Weyland-Yutani found out about it could be highly interesting. As for the AVP films goes, if they had done the movies based on the PC games (particularly "AVP 2"), the movie itself would've been a bigger box-office hit.

    Xrist Frosty, did you even read your own damn article? You asked Scott what was up with rumors of remaking or redoing the original Alien. Scott replied "Yes, Carl Rinsch is going to do the prequel to Alien. He’s one of our directors at our company. "

    So, now that you've got the idiotic bait and switch headline are you going to fix it? Where in your interview did Scott say ANYTHING at all about a REMAKE of the original? He's only talking about a single movie here, there is no mention what so ever about a remake AND a prequel. Only a prequel.

    It could be okay. I don't see why everyone's upset, though. If Alien 3, 4, and AvP 1 and 2 didn't discourage newbies from checking out the first 2, then this one certainly won't, either – their reputation is cemented.

    Wow. People really are jaded. They're making a new movie. At this point the information available barely points to a premise. Stating that it's going to be shit or that you hope it bombs before work even starts is kind of pointless. Why not hope that they get it right? That way you'll get the opportunity to enjoy a good science-fiction horror film.

    I agree Bebop! Give the movie a chance, like I said before, the difference is that the Scott's brothers will be involved and I dont think Ridley with his reputation will be involved in this movie if he wasnt thinking quality.

    I saw "Alien" DVD Director's Cut with Audio Commentary and overheard him and Sigourney Weaver saying how much Ridley wants to go and explain where and how the species came about, he did pointed out biological weaponry so I do think the Space Jockey was transporting the eggs for a reason. There is a bigger mistery I think that we realise.. there is MORE to the story than we think and kind of think of it, this Prequel can work with people as well, the possibilities are now trully endless in storytelling! PLEASE FOX take time to write a GREAT not a "good" script! Something that will wow us in a Hollywood where things are now so predictable.

    Do a new Alien 3 movie, and explain the failure of Alien 3 & 4 as Ripley's bad dream in space. Set it up like the famous " Who shot JR ? on the Dallas tv show ". I agreee it's a far fetched idea, but it's the only way Fox can get the series back on track. Also the A V P series took place way before Aliens, though I also agree that Fox screwed up mixing the two series together. I actually have read the Alien paperback series, and must say most of the current 13 books have good ideas for future movies. In fact, some of those stories are even better than what we got from Alien 3 & 4, and the A V P movies.

    i think people should just need to learn how to accept alien 3 and alien resurrection, stand alone films they are better than most scifi craps out there, "dont think about the past to start a future" of the series. we need a new direction with new ideas and concept while being truth to the original. i think the avp movies ridiculed what the alien and predator films were about, they should had been kept in the comic books and that's it.

    again.. and i will rest.. an alien sequel is better than a prequel and they should now explore the alien's origin now that ripley is half and half.. there is no better time than now to find the truth… the origin.

    Darkhorizons.com reported that 20th Century Fox wont be doing a prequel unless Ridley Scott himself directs and not produce. The guy he wants him to direct is romantically involved with Ridley's daughter. I agree with Fox, not that Fincher, Cameron or Jeunet did bad with their own spin of the series but this one needs an experienced director.

    I love the Alien Franchise, Aliend Versus Predator is another story…but i think with the scotts involved, it will defenetly be a good movie. Furthermore, i believe they should do a remake. look at the new batmans coming out….they are a hudge success…hopfully this new alien remake will be like that.

    There is no need for a remake. “Alien” being 30 years old still look awesome on the screen. In fact, it was filmed with such great lighting that the movie has not shown age. You can release the same movie in the theaters and still create the same effect, so no remakes needed, the movie does not look dated.

    Fox wont want to go forward with the Alien prequel unless Scott directs rather than produce, and I am totally with them on this one. No more testing new directors, we need to get serious and not have another rediculed sequel/prequel. The fans deserve a well thought out movie. More time on story and less time on special effects and “what looks cool” and gore. STORY STORY STORY

    I’m a ‘let’s wait and see’.

    As for Ridley directing it. I’m not sure that’s necessarily a recipe for success. Look at his recent efforts. IMO he’s made 3 great films. The Duellists, Alien and Blade Runner. Note that none of those are recent.

    When James Cameron took on Aliens he wasn’t exactly a proven commodity. And that turned out great. But post Titanic I’m not even sure that he’s the right person for the job.

    Listen to any dvd commentary from a great movie. Half of what’s great about a film comes from dumb luck. The finished product often seems like a combination of beautiful accidents & unhappy compromises rather than anything planned.

    So I say give it to someone new. Someone with everything to prove. Then just hope everthing falls into place (script, casting, production) and somehow we’re given another classic.

    Cause when you give these types of projects back to those that helped make them great, artists who have now moved on, had families and, more often than not, surrounded themselves with YES-MEN – you get bad results. You get the STAR WARS PREQUALS.

    Movie making ain’t cooking. The same quailty ingredients doesnt guarantee great results.

    Cross your fingers and hope for the best.

    I think the alien idea is fuckin sick fer sci fi horror movies. I think the newer ones are less based of the original thriller/horror/sci fi vibe though. I really wish they bring the old alien or predator ‘feeling’ back. Some good gore as well as no fuckin up the alien or changing it that much.

    Heck, i don’t think it need to be a sequal or prequel. Some good stories were told in the comics and their path diverged greatly from the movies. Its the concept of the Aliens, the Xenomorphs and “The Company” that makes the franchise ripe with possibilities. I would just like to see another good Aliens story. Sequel, Prequel, remake, cartoon, claymation.

    Also, the events of Alien might not have been a first contact. As I recall, the android, whose name i can remember, was working for The Company trying to get them live specimen.

    Hi, Neat post. There’s a problem with your web site in internet explorer, may test this? IE nonetheless is the market leader and a huge element of other people will leave out your great writing due to this problem.

  • Lee

    Hollywood did many stupid mistakes with “iconic” movies and I personally think they ruined some classic’s titles like “The Time Machine”, “Journey to center of the Earth”or the “War of The Worlds” somebody had the stupid idea of change the history (script) and you ask yourself WTF is this crap?.
    Same thing if Titanic or Back To The Future, and many more, some titles can not be remade
    I really like Alien sagas but what we need is a remastering and 3D Blueray quaility, specially Alien and Alien’s will make people jump from the chair in 3D.

    Sorry for my English.

    Thanks , I’ve recently been looking for information approximately this subject for ages and yours is the greatest I’ve found out so far. But, what concerning the conclusion? Are you certain about the supply?|What i do not understood is in reality how you’re now not actually much more smartly-appreciated than you may be right now. You are so intelligent.
