Yesterday Bloody-Disgusting broke the news that either a remake or a prequel to Ridley Scott’s original Alien movie was in the works. Now that story’s been confirmed by the good folks over at Collider and we know for certain: It’s a prequel.

Even though the idea of creating a prequel to explain away the origins of the Aliens is a pretty horrible idea, maybe there’s a silver lining here. At least Ridley Scott is somewhat involved. It’s his production company that’s behind it and his brother Tony Scott confirmed that one of the company’s directors, a guy named Carl Rinsch will be helming the prequel.

AlienThey plan to start shooting by the end of this year and yes, like it or not, Fox is still the company funding it. With their recent track record that’s bound to make fanboys nervous, as if the idea of a prequel wasn’t bad enough, but again at least the Scott’s are behind it. That’s good… isn’t it? Now somebody give us some information on this Carl Rinsch character. His IMDB page is almost as barren as my own would be, if I had one.
