Scott 'to direct Alien prequel'

Director Sir Ridley Scott is to direct a prequel to seminal sci-fi horror film Alien, according to reports.

Trade newspaper Variety said the 71-year-old would return to the franchise he began in 1979 with actors Sigourney Weaver and John Hurt.

Sir Ridley, who is currently directing Robin Hood, has not made a sci-fi movie since Blade Runner in 1982.

He was not involved in the three Alien sequels or the two Alien vs Predator spin-offs.

It is thought the prequel will tell the story of the events leading up to the original film, in which the crew of a commercial towing ship respond to a distress signal - only to discover it was generated by an empty ship that was meant to warn them.

The film will be written by Jon Spaihts, who has also penned Keanu Reeves' space film project Passengers, after he pitched his idea for the reboot to Twentieth Century Fox and Sir Ridley's production company.

Alien, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, won an Oscar for best visual effects in 1980.

Woman seeking child support from Keanu Reeves says she's been through hell

Woman seeking child support from Keanu Reeves says she's been through hell

By Trevor Pritchard  14 hours ago

BARRIE, Ont.  The woman seeking a DNA sample from actor Keanu Reeves said Monday that her family deserves compensation if he fathered of any of her children - an untested paternity claim that the star's lawyer flatly denied.

Karen Sala said she and her four grown children had been "through hell and back" in her fight for millions in child and spousal support from the star of "The Matrix."

However, Lorne Wolfson, the Hollywood star's Toronto-based attorney, said he believes the case will be swiftly dismissed.

Sala, 46, of Barrie, Ont., filed legal documents in May seeking that Reeves be ordered to undergo a DNA test.

Both she and Wolfson made a brief appearance Monday in family court, where a case conference was set for Aug. 20.

Sala alleges she carried on a sexual relationship with Reeves before, during, and after her troubled marriage. She said she believes Reeves may have fathered one or more of her four children, now between the ages of 20 and 25.

None of her allegations have been proven in court.

"Mr. Reeves' position is that the claims are totally frivolous, that he never had an intimate relationship with Ms. Sala, that the children are not his children," Wolfson said outside court.

"This case should be dismissed at the earliest opportunity."

Court documents show Sala is seeking $3 million per month in spousal support, retroactive to November 2006, as well as $150,000 per month in child support, going back to June 1988, in addition to the DNA test.

Reeves' spokespeople have denied the star even knows her.

That denial has become a "form of embarrassment" for Sala, who on Monday maintained her version of events.

"The truth is a strange thing, and sometimes no one's prepared for it. And it will come out," she said outside court.

"You have to have faith."

Sala refused to say why she didn't file her suit against Reeves when her children were younger. But she did say she notified Reeves' legal team before her youngest child turned 18.

Sala also said she had no qualms about asking for financial compensation.

"I've been through hell and back. The kids have been hell and back," said Sala. "Why not? They deserve it."

Wolfson said Sala had yet to provide any evidence to back up her "totally frivolous" accusations.

In a recent court filing, Sala said she had a photo taken of Reeves at her home in 2006. Wolfson said he'd yet to see any evidence of the photo.

While the 44-year-old Reeves was born in Lebanon, he lived in Toronto in the 1980s before moving to Hollywood. In addition to "The Matrix" trilogy, he has also appeared in "Speed," "The Devil's Advocate," and "Constantine."

Sala has said she's known Reeves since she was nine and that she launched the suit to seek closure.
