After more than a decade of squandering potential, FOX has gotten it's head out of it's a-hole and...hired SIR RIDLEY FUCKING SCOTT to direct a new ALIEN movie! As you may know, Scott directed the first ALIEN back in 1979. It was only his second feature after The Duelists (kick ass), and a handful of sweet ass commercials. Since then he has gone on to direct a whole bunch of amazing shit such as Blade Runner, Thelma & Louise, 1492, G.I. Jane (moving on, moving on...), White Squall, Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, and Kingdom of Heaven (don't bother with anything but the director's cut), among many others. Truly one of the greatest directors of our age.
And he storyboards his own movies! Well!
Word on the tubes is that this will be a prequel to his original film and is intended to reboot the franchise. After all the AVP bullshit i didn't bother to see this is a surprisingly smart move from the studio. (now if they can just get his brother Tony to take an early retirement...). Naturally I am getting all my facts from Variety.
Here is an example of some his earlier commercial work. If you are old or nerdy you might recognize it.
