[SIR RIDLEY SCOTT will produce] a new 4-hour miniseries based on Dick’s The Man In The High Castle for the BBC.

Dick’s novel is a science fiction alternate history, depicting a world in which the Axis powers — Imperial Japan and Nazi Germany — triumphed over the Allies in the Second World War.

Set 30 years before the 1979 original, so with no room for Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley, the prequels will explore the origins of the deadly aliens.

“The film will be really tough, really nasty,” [RIDLEY SCOTT] notes. “It’s the dark side of the moon. We are talking about gods and engineers. Engineers of space. And were the aliens designed as a form of biological warfare? Or biology that would go in and clean up a planet?”

Word on the street is that this is a 2-part pair of prequels, both of which Ridley Scott will be involved with.

As THRALL WORLD posted late last year, the prequel will take place 30 years prior to the 1979 ALIEN movie. Possibly the start of a new Alien trilogy.

Twentieth Century Fox is resuscitating its “Alien” franchise. The studio has hired Jon Spaihts to write a prequel that has Ridley Scott attached to return as director. Spaihts got the job after pitching the studio and Scott Free, which will produce the film.

The film is set up to be a prequel to the groundbreaking 1979 film that Scott directed. It will precede that film, in which the crew of a commercial towing ship returning to Earth is awakened and sent to respond to a distress signal from a nearby planetoid. The crew discovers too late that the signal generated by an empty ship was meant to warn them.

CARL RINSCH is confirmed as the director for an ALIEN movie PREQUEL which producers hope to start filming by the end of this year. The story is still fresh enough and information is still sparse enough to have many critics/skeptics claiming this will be an outright remake or reboot.

Read more on how the story broke HERE and it’s confirmation HERE.

PREDATOR, the other half of the ALIEN Vs. PREDATORS sideshow, was also recently confirmed for a reboot of it’s own with none other than ROBERT RODRIGUEZ overseeing. Read more on that HERE.
