Ridley Scott on the Alien Prequel


Still surprised that Ridley Scott intends to direct a prequel to his own film, Alien? So is he: "I've always avoided sequels, unless I felt there was something fresh," the filmmaker tells MTV. Among his "fresh" concepts for the prequel: the main character will be a woman, the story will lead right up to the first movie, and "there's a lot of copying [of the other films], dude. There's a lot of homage. Is that the polite word? Homage? I call it something else." No, he really said that. [MTV]

    Hollywood sure does love their prequels.

    What ever happened to the days when the only guys who could successfully make a sequel were George Lucas and Steven Spielberg??
    Did everyone just finally figure out their formula or what?
