Alien Reboot Coming From Disney?
Believe it or not, Ripley is staying home for this one…
Alien. Aliens. Heck, give me some Prometheus. I am all in.
But, as Hicks said, “Stay frosty…”
Rumors say there is a new Alien coming down the “pipe, five by five.”
However, a certain auburn-haired, flame-throwing hero is staying home this time.
Word is that the last script from Alien auteur Ridley Scott was, well, a little out there. So, Disney decided to go in a different direction.
Aliens Reboot Minus Ripley or Ridley?
Nick Santos of That Hashtag Show posted:
It’s said that many of the executives at Disney see value in Alien as a franchise, and are hoping to have a new film out every year or two.
Disney originally wanted Ridley Scott for the rebooted film. But the script they got from him was convoluted and incoherent. Far from the ‘refresh’ that the executives wanted from a reboot. We can exclusively report that a new script is in development with new writers.
This new script is going to be a completely fresh start for the Alien franchise, and will not feature any previous stars.
And it’s a true reboot. No Ripley. No Bishop [sigh]. No David.
The female lead is Fiona, and the notes described her as a ‘Mary Elizabeth Winstead type’.
She has been a survivor her whole life and is very much a realist amongst a group of idealists who are desperate for a world to call home… Fiona is the ship’s science officer and knows that procedures and protocols need to be followed. This puts her at odds with the rest of her group.
As with any and all Alien movies, eventually, the alien eggs come out to play. Someone eats a facehugger, Xenomorphs show up. Standard stuff.
Sure, standard stuff. But the stuff we want to see? For sho. And Mary Elizabeth Winstead – she’d do just fine carrying a flamethrower.
