Just a few days after the horror experts over at Bloody Disgusting reported that commercial director Carl Rinsch was tasked with helming the Fox prequel, Frosty over at Collider cornered Tony Scott at the press junket for The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3.
Scott confirmed that Rinsch, someone within the Scott brothers' inner circle, will be directing the project set to begin shooting before the end of the year.
Tony Scott: Yes, Carl Rinsch is going to do the prequel to Alien. He’s one of our directors at our company.
