Fox have apparently enlisted Ridley Scott to reboot their Alien franchise with a prequel. Scott wouldn't direct the film, rather produce it alongside his brother Tony for their production company Scott Free. According to horror and sci-fi site Bloody Disgusting, commercials director Carl Erik Rinsch, who has worked for Scott Free for a while, is being pushed to direct the film by the brothers. Sin City director Robert Rodriguez is currently in preproduction on his reboot of the Predator franchise, tentatively titled Predators.  About time these once mighty franchises had a bit of quality injected into them again.
