Ridley Scott and Fox at Odds Over Alien Prequel Budget

Ridley Scott and 20th Century Fox seem to be at odds over budget and ratings for the planned Alien prequels. Scott is currently in pre-production and is still casting leads as well.
Scott is looking for a budget around $250 million dollars which Fox is not embracing. The two sides are also at odds over MPAA ratings. Scott, who has already said his film "will be really tough, really nasty", is wanting to go for a hard R rating. Fox is looking for a PG-13 rating which opens the film to a much wider audience. It remains to be seen if this will stall production on the movie.
