It seems like plans for a remake of a sci-fi classic has hit a little snag. According to Entertainment Weekly (as reported by The Playlist), it seems that director Carl Rinsch might not be at the helm of the new Alien prequel.
The site is reporting that 20th Century Fox is reluctant to greenlight the film with Rinsch, primarily a TV commercial director, at the helm and wants to have director Ridley Scott at the helm. Rinsch has worked for Scott's company, RSA, for years now and the site also claims that Rinsch not only works for Scott's company, but is romantically involved with his daughter, Jordan.
Neither Scott nor Rinsch responded to the site's inital report.
