Looks as tho our favorite type of xenomorph has a high price tag to maintain.
Everyone has been drooling at the mouth for more news regarding Ridley Scott’s upcoming prequels for the Alien franchise. Yet it seems every time something good come our way were told “Nope, aint gonna happen.” So with this news I’m not sure weather to be upset with Mr. Scott or Fox. You decided.
According to Script Flags “Ridley Scott is at odds with 20th Century Fox, the major studios behind the project, over budgetary and creative differences, according to sources close to the production.? It would seem Scott wants a budget of around $250m to make it a sci-fi spectacular and is also pushing for an 18-rated level of violence and horror. Fox, however, don’t plan on investing anywhere near that sum, and are keen to get a 15 rating to maximise the audience appeal.”
There’s no doubt that $250m is a pretty insane amount of cash for an R-rated movie so let’s hope the powers-that-be can come to some sort of compromise. The Alien franchise is one desperately in need of some redemption.
