In light of the announcement of Predators, IESB asked 20th Century Fox’s co-chairman Tom Rothman if there was any movement on a new film in the Alien franchise. Rothman told the site that a prequel film from director Ridley Scott is possible:
“There’s been some talk. Ridley Scott, Ridley is right now working on Robin Hood, but I think he’s toying with the idea and that would be great for us. I mean, it’s always been a matter of, really, if you can get the originator to do it that would be the greatest thing, so I’ve got my fingers crossed, all of them.”
