To be taken with a giant pinch of salt at the moment, but it's being reported all over the place this morning (thanks, BD) that Fox may be working on a remake of Alien. Let's take a moment to read that again, shall we? Remaking Alien.
Luckily, it might not be straight remake, but an origins story (which could potentially be kind of interesting). The mere fact that they're suggesting that a remake of one of the greatest horror/sci-fi movies is in the works is frightening.
