A prequel to "Alien" might work. Maybe what was the derelict ship (clearly neither a human or predator ship) from the first movie, etc. However I have my doubts it will be done well.
IMO, Alien was a great movie. Aliens was done well. Predator was good. Then every other movie related to that universe has ranged from terrible to watchable if you are a fan. I think fan's could partially enjoy Predator 2 and the Alien vs Predator(s). I think Alien 4 might have been one of the worse movie's I've ever seen.
So the only reason I would be against a prequel is 3 good movies out of 8 is not a good franchise record. I think Highlander is the only other sci-fi related franchise I would trust less.
