Whatever happened to the Ridley Scott "Alien" prequel everyone was talking about? The one that will apparently tell the story of the "The Pilot" from the first film -- the fossilized alien with the burst chest the crew of the Nostromo discovered. Damon Lindelof, co-creator of "Lost" and uncredited scripter of "Star Trek," has been brought on board to rewrite the script by Jon Spaihts. The film is sounding more intriguing every day.
“Alien” series that was is due for a Blu-Ray release this October 25. And the trailer for it is live now.
