Would it be such a tragedy if Ridley Scott did something totally unique and awesome that has NOTHING to do with Alien?
I love Alien. I love Aliens. I own them both and view them regularly. That's it. It's fine to let it go. A quick homage would be neat, but I became FAR more interested in this after I figured out it wasn't an Alien prequel. I like Ridley Scott. Safe sucks... I want something new. I'm very intrigued by this.
