Fox to remake Alien

Post by Scott » Thu May 28, 2009 1:58 am

This is the kinda news that makes you want to vomit. Saw this on Bloody Disgusting. Fox is fast tracking a remake of Alien complete with a first time director whose only experience is directing commericals and music videos. Remakes seem to be all the rage among studios (Disney and Fox) but have they finally run out of ideas? Is nothing sacred? Can you imagine what's going to happen with this? Probably be PG-13 with some girl from Twilight or the WB playing Ripley.:eek:

Given this, I'm going to make a bold prediction . . . if Alien gets remade then I predict within the next year, there will be remakes of Jaws and The Exorcist.

They are doing a 'remake' of Logan's Run also and using a director who has only done commercials. I hate that. It does not promote confidence in the fans

If they base Logan's run off the book it could be cool
I'm down for Rodriguez's Predator!

Remaking Alien. What the fuck is wrong with the damn Movie Industry. Don't they have their own ideas anymore. That was a great movie to me and I don't think they need to remake it. I hope that director rots in hell because his movie is not going to be nearly as good as the original.

Instead of remaking Alien they should just put a shotgun in their mouth and pull the trigger.

How many more great movies are they going to ruin by remaking them? It seems like this is the "trendy" thing to do these days.

I hate to say it with all the remake haters, but I am excited for the Clash of the Titans remake. It will probably suck but eh..
RELEASE THE KRAKEN!
