Both Alien and Predator franchises are due for a reboot after the less than hoped for successful alien vs. Predator films. Ridley Scott, the original alien director is planning on doing an Alien prequel. This time they'll be no Sigourney Weaver, it is set some thirty or so years before the events of the first one. Whether we get a back ground to the ship that the crew of the Nostromo investigated remains a mystery. Also we may not find out what the origins or home world of the Alien is like. We've already had a glimpse of the Predator home world. The Predator will feature Laurence Fishburne and Adrien Brody and is due out in July. The impression is that the action will take place on another planet where previously all Predator films had taken place on Earth. The release date for Alien has not yet been released but isn't due next year but expected in Summer 2011.
