Today's News: Ridley Scott offically will direct the 'Alien' prequel, Universal loves Judd Apatow, Toronto goes 'Up in the Air', and more...

In the news:

Ridley Scott will indeed be revisiting the 'Alien' universe with a prequel he's directing.

Universal Studios must be happy with 'Funny People', since they've gone into business with Judd Apatow on a three picture deal.

Jason Reitman's follow up to Juno will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.

Billy Crudup gets a new role, this time in a Julia Roberts movie.

Dexter's Michael C. Hall will star next in an indie flick with comic overtones.

Finally, Jerry Bruckheimer wants to go to war with robots, in film form of course...



  1. I was SOOO against the Alien prequel. One of the great things about the first film was keeping it in that aura of mystery. On the other hand, Scott is returning, and that might be a good thing in means of keeping the original's spirit. I'm really conflicted about this news.

  2. I am so fucking excited about the Alien prequel, especially with Scott involved! Woohoo!

  3. I think it has potential, but expect nothing
