    I hope Ridley Scott doesn't cave on that pg-13, lower budget bullshit
    He wants a 250 mil budget.
    Thats fucking ridiculous he doesn't need that.


    As for the rating, he's Ridley Scott, if he doesn't get the rating he wants he'll walk.

    I dunno, I'd rather see the movie just not happen if the budget gets cut. The Aliens have been shat upon for so long they really need a big movie like this to remind people that they aren't the Predator's little pets that can be squashed on a whim.
    Though it depends on how much they want to cut it down to. But I mean, if the man wants a 250 mil budget then he must have something truely big in mind, and he's Ridley fucking Scott so he'll do it right.

    $250 would make this tie for the third most expensive movie ever. Even avatar managed a lesser budget, though not by much, with $237 million.

    They'd better not make it a PG-13. No way would they be able to make another Alien film that stood a chance of competing with the originals if they made it with a PG-13 rating.

    Ridley wouldn't do the "gimmicky shit that pops out at you and charge an extra $5"

    It would be another Avatar-esque experience if he did it.

    I might be late but it better be rated R Because It's not an ALIEN Movie without Headbites,Molecular acid burning through some poor sucker's flesh
    And bits of brains flying from the head when an alien pierces the skull with their pharyngeal jaws(for those who don't know what that is it's a fancy word for a second pair of jaws)

    But this would be worth it, because it would be A) great mind-blowing visuals and B) an original story line.

    Seriously guys, do some fucking research before making posts. These new prequels are A) going to cover when humans and aliens make contact for the first time B) the origin of the space jockey C) the rise of The Company thing. Ripley will not be in this, she will not even be mentioned, nor will the lead role be an ancestor of her or any of that stuff. This is 100% original.

    I kinda want the space jockey to remain unknown, it added to the mystery of the Alien, but then again im desperate for more Alien movies.
    A movie about either the corporation or the jockeys would be sweet.
    Would be a pretty good opening for an ending too i guess, a jockey sitting down in that chair to die, fade to black, splashing sound.

    I could do without super gore.
    It cheapens it.

    Alien has very little gore. Sure the chestbursting was nasty but aside from that, you had a bit of blood flashing on the screen for a split second when Parker was killed, and you see Lamberts foot with a bit of blood on it.
    Thats pretty much it.

    Gore isn't scary.

    Apparently logistics is outside your purview.

    He wants 250 million for two movies shot with stereoscopic lensing for true 3d and completely practical effects, which isn't even midrange for two projects.

    Alien was the goriest movie made to date at the time, and test audiences reacted so badly to Parker's original minute long death scene where the Alien literally pulled half his brain out that people literally ran screaming from the test theater, which prompted FOX, not Scott to shorten it to what it is now.

    Research be thy friend and ally.

    where is it stated that the 250 million is for both prequels together and not just for each.

    Any actual article about the movies, such as the group at Io9. Both are being shot back to back, which is why Scott wanted Rinsch, who has a hell of alot more time to shoot, and a lot more familiar with bleeding edge film techniques.

    Fox being upset over a budget of $125, plus the way everyone's been freaking out over the number doesn't make much sense. Them being upset over one film costing $250 million sure does. Even the article this was originally reported on never states that it's for both prequels together.

    http://www.scriptflags.com/2010/09/a...ley-scott.html

    Plus last I checked we were told the two films aren't being shot back to back. When did that change?

    Months and months ago, when the final new Lindelof-edited script was delivered. The logistics of shooting in stereo on sets built specifically for that purpose also factored in to the decision. Scott doesn't have the time or inclination to go back to mothballed sets 6-18 months later and speaking of ridiculous money, FOX isn't going to lay out capital to rent out lots for the same amount of time while they aren't being used.

    SO yeah, for those that still remember this: rumors had been going about that a certain script that was getting passed along the internet was the script for the film. I hadn't been hearing very good things about it but that doesn't matter anymore, as one of the writers for Lost was hired to do rewrites. But there are still some big problems going on now. Ridley wants a HUGE budgeted ($250 million), R rated movie. Fox wants that budget cut big time and a more commercial friendly rating of PG13. So now we just have to wait and see what exactly is going to happen with that. Hopefully this will all still be worth the wait.

    PG13, what the fuck?

    Alien is meant to be an adults movie, not some kiddy friendly bullshit.

    PG-13 = wider variety of audiences = more money.

    Essentially, they want another AVP. But, it's Ridley Scott, he will kindly tell them to go fuck themselves. Plus, when FOX uses Alien as one of their 75th anniversary posters, I think Scott should get to do whatever he wants.



    Look at that. It says 75 years of screams. That must mean that FOX has no problem with R rated horror/gore films, and Alien wouldn't work on any other level.

    Also, Alien Director's Cut ftw.

    How would that work as a film? it's an interesting to think. But I reckon some bits of the book will be un-filmable. On the subject of Ridleys disagreement with the suits at Fox, he can just tell them to fuck off, they should know by now that a pg-13 rating and anything Aliens does not mix, and is bad for business and at the end of the day they want to make a profit. They should just let him loose.

    Also Pg-13=wider audience=more money

    could also be:

    R=movie sells well and gets good reviews=good Blueray/DVD sales=

    And I still say that Alien was the best movie in the entire franchise and is one of the pinnacles of design and cinematography in movies.

    If they deliver something like Aliens and it's all actiony and over the top and completely not scary I'll send them very angry letters.
