Ridley Scott to make 'Alien' prequel?
20th Century Fox co-chairman Tom Rothman has hinted that Ridley Scott may revive the Alien franchise.
Speaking to IESB.net at Wolverine's US premiere, Rothman appeared to confirm rumours that Scott, who helmed the first Alien movie in 1979, is considering making a prequel.
"There's been some talk," said Rothman. "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."
Alien spawned three sequels before leading into crossover series Alien Vs. Predator. The films have taken more than $850 million at the worldwide box office
