Ridley Scott back for more Alien!

I know most of you are clamoring for a full vacation recap. I hope to get that done later today depending on when I can get some pictures ready.

In the meantime, I stumbled across this bit of news yesterday. An Alien prequel is in the works and none other than Ridley Scott is set to direct. Aliens is my 2nd favorite movie of all-time and Alien is probably firmly in my top 50. I had heard rumors for a few weeks now that a prequel to Alien was being green-lit. Scott (who directed the 1979 Alien classic) had not been linked to the director's chair until now. I'm very excited about this news as I desperately want to wash the taste out of my mouth of Alien 3, Alien Resurrection and the two terrible Alien vs. Predator films. I'm confident that Scott can give the proper treatment to a prequel that deals with the roots of the Alien creature.
