James Franco and Anne Hathaway Could be Heading for Space in the Alien Prequel

With every passing bit of news that comes across our desk concerning Ridley Scott's Alien prequel, I find myself losing more and more interest.

The ever-diligent newshounds of Bloody Disgusting have learned that two more names have been added to the possible roster in the upcoming Alien prequel. Neither James Franco nor Anne Hathaway have signed on yet, but they're on the short list of hopefuls alongside Natalie Portman and Noomi Rapace, to name a few.

Fox is looking to get this sucker rolling very soon, so expect a lot more news (and some healthy doses of speculation) before the fifth installment in the long running series creeps its way into theaters.

Alien Prequel Edges Closer! Fox Loves Script! Natalie Portman to Star?

Why spend money on big name actors? Studies have shown there is no correlation between a movie's financial success and the actors starring within it.

Look at the title 'Alien'. This is where you spend the money. On the ALIEN. Alas, it'll doubtless be a CG shit fest.
