Normally the name Ridley Scott mentioned in the same sentence as the words "new vampire film" would have us giddy like a schoolgirl, but we're still busy celebrating the man's return to the Alien franchise! Yet, there is indeed life after Xenomorphs, and Fox 2000 is busy developing a project that would reunite the director with screenwriter John Logan, who worked with him on Gladiator.
It felt so good to type that I think I'll do it again. Ridley Scott to Direct Alien Prequel. Now in bold -- Ridley Scott to Direct Alien Prequel. Now in bold and caps. RIDLEY SCOTT TO DIRECT ALIEN PREQUEL! On Earth everyone can hear fans breathe a sigh of relief.
Wait, Fox wants to make a good Alien movie now? It certainly would seem so if today’s announcement is any indication.

Ridley Scott, the man who jerked many of us into the horror genre with space truckers and xenomorphs, may be eyeing another murderous creature for a future film.
