Looks like 20th Century Fox really didn't want anyone but Ridley Scott in charge of the Alien prequel - he's officially attached to direct.
Jon Spaihts is writing the script after submitting a killer pitch to Scott Free Productions
There's no word on exactly what the plot will be, but it'll likely set up the dead, Xenomorph egg-infested ship seen in the original Alien.
While we're still not sure we need to see another use of the Alien franchise, having Scott back at the helm certainly helps us warm to the idea.
And if it means we don't have to suffer another Aliens Vs Predator film - at least for a while - it's all the better for it.
