Ridley Scott to direct a prequel to Alien



A couple of months ago, Tony Scott [TSCOT] announced that a prequel to Alien [ALEN5] will be directed by Carl Rinsch, a commerical director working at Scott Free Productions, the company belonging to Tony and Ridley Scott [RSCOT].  However, Fox did not take too kindly to the preemptive announcement, especially when it turned out Rinsch was rumored to be dating Ridley's daughter.  The studio was not going to greenlight the prequel unless the director of Alien himself takes the helm.  Fox, who foots the bills, prevailed and Riley Scott will now return to direct the prequel to be scripted by Jon Spaihts.   The original 1979 film has become a sci-fi horror classic.  It's influence can be seen in every, yes every, spacebound film and videogame that came after.   Does Ridley Scott still have it, even if he's seemingly taking the job for the money?
