Default 'Alien' Prequel Dead

Ridley Scott's movie has turned into an original story called 'Prometheus'. No word if H R Giger will be contributing.

Ah well, it looks like the Alien franchise has come to an end.

I, for one, am glad it's been canned.

If(when) there is another Alien movie to add the the franchise, I just hope that it is worthy of being made, not a direct to DVD sequel or prequel. I had great expectations with the original director Ridley Scott at the helm.

Interestingly, thanks to Inceptions huge box office last year alot of new sci-fi is being green lit by the studios, with directors being tied into two and three film deals. When I heard Ridley was back to sci fi I was pleased, but not so impressed about it being an Alien prequel.The whole series has been done to death now.
Best news I've heard is that Neil Blomkamp who did "District 9" is now doing "Elyssium", which is set in our future 100 years hence. The EVEN better news is that he has managed to get SYD MEAD into the concept and design stages!!! How brilliant is that!!! Only the best concept artist to most my favorite films ie Bladerunner, 2010,Aliens (I'll even count in Tron) etc.
Also Duncan Jones (Moon) new film is out soon (looks like Groundhog day with a sci fi timejumping angle) and his next is supposed to be a tribute to Bladerunner.
Plus there is "LA Battlefield" which looks like a documentary style shot sequel to Independance Day (though after the aliens have landed) out in March. Things are looking up again.
