Alien Remake Confirmed

A few days back we told y'all the rumor that Ridley Scott's classic Alien was going to be apart of the recent redux craze that has gripped Hollywood.  The proposed remake is going to be produced by brothers Ridley & Tony Scott and longtime associate Carl Rinsch directing.  While at a junket for Tony Scott's own remake The Taking Of Pelham 123, Collider walked straight up to Tony Scott and got the rumor confirmed. 

Tony Scott: Yes, Carl Rinsch is going to do the prequel to Alien.  He's one of our directors at our company.

Though, more interestingly, Scott uses the word 'prequel'.  So, dunno exactly what that might mean.  Will the film revolve around another hapless group of Weyland-Yutani employees sent to collect the Xenomorph or something a bit more interesting than that?  Hopefully more word on the story will come out as the weeks go on.  Though I'm opposed to a redux or whathaveyou of Alien, since Ridley Scott seems to be invovled with the remake more substantially than most directors are with a remake of their own film, maybe it might be decent.  Tony Scott also revealed that they're looking to get the remake/prequel/redux thingy in front of cameras hopefully before the year's end.
