    I guess they felt it needed a teen love story and more lasers.

    I would like to see the space jockey again. That's about it. Giger needs to be involved again.

    Meh, never liked the Alien films that much. Second one was ok. If franchises must be raped, I'm happy if they're ones I'm not interested in.

    I can get behind this. Alien, more so than Predator, would benefit from a reboot.

    Well, at least we're all taking this news better than some of the people on the website it was announced on:

    Personally... Yeah, it sucks they're remaking it but they're trying to reach a new audience and relaunch the franchise, so more power to them. It's the least they could do after AVP.

    It's not a remake, it's a reboot, like Star Trek, which was awesome! I have good thoughts about this, hell, they should hire me as the writer. I have some good ideas. Least of all, the alien does not show up until after halfway through the film. And it looks different, and acts different.

    They need to slow down the reproduction cycle. That is why alien was so awesome. They also need a good director with good up and coming actors, JUST LIKE STAR TREK.

    Basicslly just tell a story about some people that meet the aliens before alien, like Newts parents...ok, I'm brainstorming, this might envolve a huge religious family that is trying to escape humanity, and set their own commune up.

    I was joking about this with my bros' about this since it's the 30th anniversary of the original film's release...but I'll be kinda pissed if this is indeed true.

    Then again, at this point, I've lost faith in anything Fox makes.

    I'll change my mind if Giger, Scott or a solid, story comes up (exploring the Space Jokey is nice, but I don't know if I truly want to know how & why the Aliens were created).

    Might as well reboot the AvP franchise, this time following the Dark Horse stories.

    Here goes...this happens BEFORE Alien.

    A really rich family not unlike some of the really bad religious communes in recent history hires a shipping crew to travel to a distant world, they have a lot of kids on board. This family cares nothing about the crew, and only wants to practice their religion on their own, hoping to create an utopian society.

    They find a planet like Earth, but it has been ravaged by war. Something truley horrific, and alien. There are gigantic structures all around, that have not been used for eons. This is the remanents of the space jockey civilization. There is one lone pilot still watching over the planet, the ship contains thousands of eggs. The pilot lands, and tries to make peace, but the family misenterprets the communication, both the family and the crew decide to waste the alien. The alien decides to capture everybody aboard his ship, and sets a cooridinate to Earth.

    Two of the kids from the family decide that Earth is no place for the space jockey, so they learn about the eggs through telepathy from the space jockey. They sacrifice there own parents to the eggs, aliens are born, They kill everybody, and implant a chestburster into the space jockey, causing him to crash on LV-426. The 2 kids survive, managing to send a distess beacon....

    I need some help on the crew members, and what they do...they dont like the family at all.

    I'm not sure I really understand the problem. "From the guy who made the film you all love so much" doesn't sound too bad. Get back to me when Michael Bay or Uwe Boll are attached to the project.
