Second Chance Offer: Predator on Alien Horse Collectible

Predator on Alien Horse Polystone Statue

Predator on Alien Horse Polystone Statue

I first posted about this collectible back in January because I loved it, but at the time it had actually been sold out. It seems someone didn’t follow through on their purchase and as a result someone else is going to get very lucky.

This is a Limited Edition (750 pieces) polystone statue of a Predator riding an Alien (Xenomorph) horse.  Since it was previously sold out, and since it is extremely cool, consider it “very limited”.

Price is US$249.99.

Ridley Scott to Direct ‘Alien’ Prequel After All

In April 20th Century Fox Chairman Tom Rothman confirmed an Alien prequel film was under discussion and, at that time, hoped it would be helmed by Ridley Scott, the director of the original Alien that started the whole franchise.

In May Ridley Scott’s brother Tony stated a director has been attached to the project but it wasn’t Ridley Scott – it was Carl Rinsch.

Then in June EW broke the news that 20th Century Fox weren’t going to green-light the prequel unless Ridley Scott was at the helm.

Finally, three months later, it seems the saga has come to an end with 20th Century Fox prevailing. According to Variety, Ridley Scott has now been officially attached as the director.

Variety also report that Jon Spaihts has been tapped to write the screenplay.  Spaihts apparently scored the job after pitching to 20th Century Fox and the Scott’s production company, Scott Free.  Spaihts is currently working on the script to a Keanu Reeves space epic titled Passengers, Children of Mars for Disney, and The Darkest Hour which Wanted’s Timur Bekmambetov will produce.

The Alien prequel will see the first time Ridley Scott has returned to the franchise since he directed the original 1979 Alien.

It is too early for release date details.

Doubts Surface Over ‘Alien’ Prequel

Ridley Scott's Alien

In April 20th Century Fox Chairman Tom Rothman confirmed discussions were underway to develop an Alien prequel film and that they were hoping it would be helmed by Ridley Scott, the director of the original Alien that started the whole franchise.

A month later (in May) Ridley Scott’s brother Tony confirmed relative unknown Carl Rinsch was attached to direct the film.

Carl Rinsch is a newcomer who has never directed a feature film before, but he’s demonstrated a lot of creative talent in a truck load of shorts including The Evolution of Technology and a host of many other innovative commercials (do a search of YouTube for his name to see what I mean).

But whilst Rinsch reportedly has the support of both Tony and Ridley Scott it seems he doesn’t have the support of 20th Century Fox, according to a recent report on EW.

From EW:

Sources at Fox, however, tell EW that the studio is not interested in greenlighting a prequel unless Scott himself directs. Scott and his reps didn’t respond to calls for comment.

It remains too early to confirm a title for the new film, shooting dates or a release schedule – and now it seems it might be too early to say the movie is going ahead.

I’m seriously hoping Fox go with the Scott’s recommendation to hand Rinsch the helm, otherwise the prequel might die an early death.
