once ridley scott(hopefully) finishes his prequel storys, disney will probably get a different director to start the next batch of movies. I think that disney should allow quinten tarintino to direct an alien film. here are some reasons why:
he is one of the best directors working today. this by itself dosn't nessesarily make a good choice. for example, steven spielberg is also one of the best directors working today but hewould still be a bad choiceto direct an alien film. however, quinten tarintinos movies have many key elements to what made the first alien so great. first of all he writes and directs fantastic charectors that are likeable and smart. this was a very big complaint with covenant. second of all, his films build so much tension. (espiecially inglorious basterds) he can build just so much suspense with just dialoge.https://vimeo.com/86741537
in this scene, a nazi is investigating a home in search of hiding jews. there is indead jews hidig beneath the floarboards and throughout the scene you are biting your nails hoping he dosn't know. this is not the same kind of tension as in an alien movie fearing what lurks in the dark but it is something that could easily transfered.
another thing quinten tarintino dose very well is action and violence. he dose present his violence in a somewhat more fun over the top way in movies like kill bill but He still dose it briliantly.
quinten tarintino is also an extremly popular director among movie goers so him directing an alien movie would spark tons of intrest from people who wouldent normaly go see an alien film. the final point I have to make is that quinten tarintino has expressed intrest in the sci fi genre recently. he is aparently onboard to direct the next star trek movie wich he claims will be rated R.
this was all sparked when I watched pulp fiction tonight. let me know if you agree or dissagree with me in the comments.

First of all, I have hoped for a long time that Tarantino would put his mark on the cci-fi world for the above reasons you have mentioned. Tarantino has a gift of creating intense drama through the use of great dialogue. I thought the Hateful Eight was a good example of this. He also knows how to pick the right actors for the job. I think Christopher Waltz, and Samuel L Jackson must be on his permanent payroll.
Given the prominence of both these actors, along with the many big stars that will work with Tarantino, I think having Tarantino direct an Alien movie would attract a very high calibre cast.
One of the main reasons I like Tarantino’s work is that he can bring things to a crescendo that can be blood filled and still throw in a few unexpected twists and turns. Tarantino is also one who likes to bring what can be minor details into greater focus and put a different slant on them, just like when everyone is arguing over what name colour they are given in Reservoir Dogs, or bringing up what a Big Mac is called in France from Pulp Fiction.
One thing that I think anyone should be mindful of with Tarantino, is not to expect the usual when it comes to following a plot. I would certainly welcome the idea of Tarantino doing an Alien movie, and the only thing I would expect to see would be blood and violence somewhere in the mix, maybe Ninja Xeno’s with Bad Muther Fxxker, acid etched on their heads.
