Website Collider confirmed today with Tony Scott our exclusive breaking news that Carl Rinsch will be getting behind the camera for 20th Century Fox’s reboot of the Alien franchise started back in ’79 by Ridley Scott. It was also confirmed that the reboot is being pinned as a “prequel” (even though we all know damn well it’s still a reboot). In the original, the terror begins when the crew of a spaceship investigates a transmission from a desolate planet, and discovers a life form that is perfectly evolved to annihilate mankind. One by one, each crew member is slain until only Ripley is left, leading to an explosive conclusion that sets the stage for its stunning sequel, Aliens (my favorite film of all-time).
