Actor Lance Henriksen (Aliens, Alien3 and AVP: Aliens vs. Predator) has signed up to appear in the upcoming "Aliens vs. Predator" game, developed by Rebellion in the UK.
Lance Henriksen will appear as Karl Bishop Weyland, a descendent of Charles Bishop Weyland, the founder of the infamous Weyland-Yutani corporation from the Aliens universe. He will lend his likeness and voice to the production.
"They've made me look very good," said Lance Henriksen, "This is the first time I've been fully represented in a game, with my voice and how I look, and the Rebellion guys have done a great job. I might score from this game!"
"Aliens vs. Predator" is set for release in February 2010 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Empire Online sprach mit Ridley Scott über das "Alien"-Prequel...
[...] Since the prequel was announced, it's been assumed that it would tell the story of how those nasty, slavering xenomorphs came to land on LV-426 in the first place. But after listening to Sir Ridley, suddenly we're not so sure...
"It's a brand new box of tricks," said Sir Ridley. "We know what the road map is, and the screenplay is now being put on paper. The prequel will be a while ago. It's very difficult to put a year on Alien, but [for example] if Alien was towards the end of this century, then the prequel story will take place thirty years prior."
Interesting. And damned intriguing, to boot. Presumably, rather than make a film about how those massive elephantine aliens (remember the giant pilot with his chest blown outwards in Sir Ridley's original?) were decimated by the acid-blooded bastards, Sir Ridley and his writer, Jon Spaihts, have decided to reboot the story in an attempt to give it a human focus.
How this will fit in with existing series continuity remains, like much about the new Fox movie, to be seen, but with Sir Ridley on board, we're sure that the Alien series is on course for a return to genuine quality. Frankly, though, we're still a little surprised that the man who is arguably Britain's greatest living director would return to the scene of his greatest triumph. So why do it?
"I never thought I'd look forward to a sequel," said Sir Ridley. "But a prequel is kind of interesting. I'm looking forward to doing that." [...]

Twentieth Century Fox is resuscitating its "Alien" franchise. The studio has hired Jon Spaihts to write a prequel that has Ridley Scott attached to return as director.
Spaihts got the job after pitching the studio and Scott Free, which will produce the film.
The film is set up to be a prequel to the groundbreaking 1979 film that Scott directed. It will precede that film, in which the crew of a commercial towing ship returning to Earth is awakened and sent to respond to a distress signal from a nearby planetoid. The crew discovers too late that the signal generated by an empty ship was meant to warn them.
The deal gives Fox another chance to keep the "Alien" franchise alive. There were three sequels to Scott's original, but it is the first time the director has set his mind on directing one.
Spaihts has become a go-to-guy for space thrillers. After Keanu Reeves became attached to his Warner Bros. sci-fi script "Shadow 19," Reeves hired Spaihts to write the space journey epic "Passengers," which is berthed at Morgan Creek. That script got Spaihts the meeting with Fox and Scott Free, and he won the job with an "Alien" reboot take that the studio and Scott loved.
Fox has separately hired him to rewrite "The Darkest Hour," which Timur Bekmambetov to produce with Tom Jacobson. Spaihts is writing "Children of Mars" for Disney and Scott Rudin, and he will follow by rewriting "St. George and the Dragon" for Sony and Red Wagon.
Nach einer großen Ungewissheit, ob Alien Colonial Marines überhaupt noch erscheint, bestätigt nun Randy Pitchford von Gearbox, dass der Titel 2010 veröffentlicht werden soll.
Ursprünglich ging man von einem Release noch in diesem Jahr aus, bevor dann zu hören war, dass SEGA einige Projekte gestoppt hat. Alien Colonial Marines gehörte aber nicht dazu. [...]
CS! sprach mit Tony Scott...
[...] The movie people are probably the most interested in is the rumored Untitled Alien Prequel that was discussed heavily last week. Scott had told another site that director Carl Rinsch was going to be directing it, but then just a few days ago Entertainment Weekly reported that in fact, no director had been signed and that 20th Century Fox was holding out hope that Tony's brother Ridley Scott would be directing. "I'm going to call a time out on that one," he halted us when asked about it today, though he still seemed optimistic things would work out. "I don't want to get caught in the middle. We're in process on that, but I don't have enough information to bring it to this table, but we're going to make it." [...]
Wie EW.com meldet, steht noch nicht sicher fest, wer beim "Alien"-Prequel Regie führen wird...
[...] When word leaked earlier this week that Ridley Scott was working on a prequel to his 30-year-old sci-fi classic, the original Alien, fans pounced on the news. But the project may have already hit its first speed bump: The filmmakers and Fox, the studio that owns the rights to the franchise, seem to have conflicting ideas about who should direct. Scott plans to produce and had handpicked commercial director Carl Erik Rinsch - whose ads for German electronics company Saturn are known for their futuristic flourishes - to make his feature debut. Rinsch's selection is complicated by the rumor that he's romantically involved with Scott's daughter, Jordan, also a commercial helmer. (Reps for both Jordan Scott and Rinsch did not respond to calls to confirm.) Sources at Fox, however, tell EW that the studio is not interested in greenlighting a prequel unless Scott himself directs. Scott and his reps didn't respond to calls for comment. But Tony Scott, Ridley's brother and producing partner, was unequivocal in his support for Rinsch when asked about the project last weekend at the junket for his movie The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3. ''Carl is doing the prequel to Alien,'' Tony told a reporter from Collider.com, before adding: ''I'm excited because Ridley created the original and Carl is one of the family.'' Just which ''family,'' personal or professional or both, was unclear. [...]

Collider.com berichtet über das Reboot von "Alien" bei dem es sich doch tatsächlich um ein Prequel handelt...
[...] A few days ago, Bloody-Disgusting reported that 20th century Fox was going to remake "Alien" and director Carl Rinsch would be helming the movie. Immediately fandom exploded with venom. I think one of the main reasons is that the original is a classic, and 20th Century Fox hasn't been making films of that caliber recently.
So at today's junket for Tony Scott's new film "The Taking of Pelham 123", I went up Tony after the press conference ended to ask him what was up with the remake.
The big news is he confirmed Carl Rinsch would be directing it and that it's a prequel to his brother Ridley's classic!
What Tony told me is after the jump:
Collider: 20th Century Fox is talking about remaking or redoing the original Alien. What's going on with that?
Tony Scott: Yes, Carl Rinsch is going to do the prequel to Alien. He's one of our directors at our company.
Collider: I'm going to be blunt about this. Fox has not been doing a great job recently with their movies. They haven't been an artist friendly studio. Are you guys going to have some creative control and make this a kick-ass film?
Tony: Yes! But Fox is our home. They finace our production company.
Collider: And I'm very happy that you guys have the financing. But a lot of the films they've been doing at the studio level, they've been nickel and diming and not giving fandom what they want. So I guess my question for you is - are you a little nervous about reengaging the franchise or are you excited.
Tony: I'm excited cause Ridley created the original and Carl Rinsch is one of the family.
Collider: When do you envision this film getting in front of cameras?
Tony: Hopefully the end of the year.
Collider: Will it be a summer of 2011 movie?
Tony: Honestly, I don't know. [...]

[...] Das Spiel ist zeitlich 30 Jahre nach dem Alien Film angesiedelt, auf einem Planeten wo die Colonial Marines versuchen eine ernsthafte Xenomorph Infection aufzuhalten.
Das Spiel bietet 3 Single Player Kampagnen, für jede Rasse eine, und jede mit einzigartigen Fähigkeiten. Außerdem wird es einen Multiplayer Part geben, wo gerade diese von Bedeutung sein werden. [...]
Sega hat nun ein neues Alien Vs Predator-Spiel bestätigt, welche von Entwicklerstudio Rebellion entwickelt wird. Als Releasedatum wird momentan das Jahr 2010 genannt und auch weitere Details in Kürze sind versprochen worden. Informationen auf welche Plattformen das Spiel erscheinen wird sind derzeit nicht bekannt.
Der neue Titel hat eine "strategisch aktualisierte" Release-Planung für Sega's andere beiden Alien Spiele, wenn auch nicht klar ist, was das bedeuten soll. "Das innovative neue AvP-Spiel bietet uns eine spannende Möglichkeit", sagte Sega West Chef Naoya Tsurumi. "Es ist eine tolle Ergänzung zu unserer wachsenden Alien-Franchise und die Neuerfindung des am meisten gehegten ikonischen Titel. Durch die Anpassung des Releases von unseren anderen Alien Titeln, wird Sega dafür sorgen, dass jeder Titel den hohen Erwartungen der Alien- und AVP-Fans gerecht wird."

MTV fragte Sigourney Weaver nach einem möglichen "Alien"-Sequel...
[...] Weaver confirmed that she and Scott have discussed re-teaming for a fifth film, "Both of us feel a kind of commitment to that woman. He’s as much responsible for who she is as I am." Then as she opined on the way the alien creature had been ruined in the recent films, Weaver’s comments got especially interesting.
"We’d have to go back to the drawing board on [the alien]," she said. "Ridley said that right away when we first talked about [a fifth film]."
And finally, the quote that’s gotten me mighty curious, "What we’re interested in is taking the character of Ripley and seeing what other science fiction story we can tell about someone who has lived several lives." [...]
Gearbox Präsident Randy Pitchford hat nun, entgegen den Gerüchten, gesagt, dass der Ego-Shooter Aliens: Colonial Wars noch nicht fallen gelassen wurde.
"Das Spiel ist nicht eingestampft", sagte Pitchford, "wir haben nur einige Änderungen vorgenommen, die auch andere Mitarbeiter erfordern."
Die richtige Geschichte scheint allerdings etwas anders auszusehen. Allem Anschein nach hat Gearbox nach dem Debakel von Brothers in Arms: Hell’s Highway ca. 25 Mitarbeiter entlassen, die auch an Aliens mitarbeiteten.
Inwiefern sich das letztendlich auf die Qualität des Spiels auswirkt, wird sich noch zeigen.
Collider.com sprach mit dem Produzenten John Davis, u.a. über die Zukunft von AVP...
[...] You were also involved with AVP and AVPR, which are two great franchises, but they haven’t been able to work as a joint franchise. When are we going to see them go separate? Or are we going to see a third AVP?
John Davis: Well, the Governor has mentioned to me that when he ceases to be Governor, if he doesn’t run for the Senate and all of that stuff, he’d like to do a movie or two again. And I don’t know, maybe we could restart the Predator franchise.
So if Arnold wanted to do it, it’s going to get made?
John Davis: Well we’d have to come up with a really good script and a really great angle on it, but Predator was the first movie I was ever involved with, so it’s always going to have a really soft spot in my heart.
So is the AVP franchise on hold for now?
John Davis: I think we’ve logically done what we could’ve done with the two AVP movies. But I think there’s something to go back to with Predator.
How do you see the character that Arnold plays to that franchise?
John Davis: I don’t know yet. But I think Predator is a great character and a great monster.

An anonymous source over at 20th Century Fox got in touch with us over the weekend to relay the news another Aliens vs. Predator sequel is a "certainty" at this point. If you recall, the brothers Strause - who helmed the Christmas release Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem - stated Fox was going to take a "wait-and-see" approach to a third chapter, furthermore, that the story would have to continue in space (details). "AvP-R" grossed a worldwide total of $128.8 million; $41 million domestically. It hits DVD on April 15th (specs and artD). No word yet if the Strause brothers will return to the franchise.

Es gibt neue Infos zum teambasierten Shooter "Aliens: Colonial Marines" (PS3, Xbox 360)...
So "Aliens Vs. Predator : Requiem" didn't exactly set the box office on fire - like most assumed it would; seems 'word of mouth' might've played a part in that - but that doesn't mean the prospects of seeing another tag-team between slimey and the ugly-mo-fo isn't still a strong possibility.
A few hours ago, one half of the film's directing team, Colin Strause, posted the following in the IMDB forums :
We did over 15 million internationally (and it hasn't even opened everywhere yet), which means in just a few days we've already made more than our total budget was. I admit I wish it did better in the US, but these numbers are nothing to feel bad about.
The flick, which Strause co-directed alongside brother Greg, grossed an estimated $10 million from 2,611 runs for a cume of $26.9 million in the sequel's first six days. [...]
So will we see another "Aliens Vs. Predator" film? It's, of course, too early to say... but I think it's pretty safe to say we'll at least see the characters return in some form or another - hopefully in stand-alone "Alien" and "Predator" movies. (Should a third "AvP" movie be greenlight, the Strause boys have already informed the studio they'd like to set it in 'Space').

The game is being developed by Rebellion, creator of the original highly acclaimed "Aliens vs. Predator" PC game. [...]
In this third-person action-adventure, players will be an elite lone Predator with an arsenal of exotic weaponry and equipment at their disposal. The game will give access to advanced technologies with the Predator's wrist computer including Pred-tech/thermal vision modes and cloaking, to track, stalk and annihilate both humans and Aliens. Both classic and completely new futuristic weapons such as wrist blades, laser trip mines and dual shoulder cannons will give players the ability to eradicate all traces of the Alien race. With co-op multiplayer mode players will be able to team up with friends wirelessly to play as the Predator's comrades, attempting to withstand hordes of attacking Aliens.
To add to the game's challenging features, an honor point system will evaluate the player's success based on how closely they adhere to the Predator's value system. The higher the honor achievement, the more weapon and armor upgrades available to the player. [...]

Im MTV Movies Blog steht zu lesen...
[...] "[We’re] trying to get back to the basics [with] the suspense and the gore," actor Steven Pasquale told MTV News, revealing that "AVP2’ will be considerably scarier than its predecessor. "I think it’s going to be really fun. [Directors] Colin and Greg Strause really know what they’re doing in terms of a sort of true-blue monster movie."
Pasquale will tackle the role of Dallas - not to be confused with Tom Skerritt’s Dallas from the original "Alien" movie - a character caught in the middle of a battle between the two iconic extraterrestrial villains. "[He’s] our convict who returns home to his small town in Colorado to find aliens and predators," he said. "Haven’t we always wondered what would happen if they made it to Earth? [Well] now they have, and drama ensues. It’s more about survival. Clearly we don’t know what the hell these things are, so me and my little brother and a couple of the other main characters are trying to just get out of town with everything intact, and that’s the journey rather than trying to sort of conquer the invincible monsters."
Unlike the first film, which saw criticism over the small amount of actual screentime between its spacey warring factions, Pasquale says that won’t be an issue this time. "Aliens and predators will be fighting to the death," he stated, also hinting at something big in the offing. "There’s a little secret surprise that I can’t tell you about that the sci-fi fans are going to go bananas over. It’s going to be awesome." [...]
Bei AlienExperience.com gibt es ein Interview mit Andrew Li, dem Assistant Art Director von AVP2...
AXP: [...] As the setting is unique to both the Alien and Predator franchises, what kind of influences did you draw from the previous installments?
AL: For the Predator, we got a glimpse of their starship at the ending of the last AVP when we see one of their own lying dead on a Predator altar bed. We take cues from that design and ramp it up for our version of the altar bed and the Predator spacecraft. We developed our own version of the Predator alphabet which is similar to the characters that have already been established.
AXP: This is the first film featuring the Alien creatures to be shot predominately on-location; was it a challenge to create new and convincing environments?
AL: What's unique about this Alien movie is that we finally see the Aliens invading somewhere that most people would be familiar with - small town U.S.A. In a sense, this puts the movie in the classic horror genre where some evil being is killing innocent people in places that were once considered safe. So by this measure, it was not difficult to create new and convincing settings. The Alien is an incredibly resilient character.
AXP: Much of the previous films' effectiveness relied upon their use of setting; how did this play into the set design and choice of locations?
AL: What was challenging was working with a relatively low budget for a movie of this scope. We had to create fairly high production values on a medium budget. Our excellent DOP Daniel Pearl lit and shot the sets beautifully and goes to show again and again that proper lighting can improve the look of a set many fold. What was also challenging on a logistical level was securing locations. Our very able Locations Manager Steve Sach did his best to get us the best locations that our Directors wanted, but on many, many occasions we lost the locations because of poor timing and a hundred different reasons. It's much harder to convince a shop owner to rent us their space for a monster
movie with no movie stars than it is if we had say Harrison Ford on our cast. [...]
AXP: Atmospherically, which series of films would you say AVP 2 resembles more? Alien or Predator?
AL: AVP 2 brings the conflict between these two powerful tribes back to where we live. Only the Predator [franchise] has ever done that with Danny Glover fighting it out in L.A. [...]

Reiko Aylesworth and Steven Pasquale have been cast as the leads in 20th Century Fox's Alien vs. Predator 2, which begins filming next week in Vancouver, reports Variety.
Greg and Colin Strause direct from a script by Armageddon writer Shane Salerno. Davis Entertainment's John Davis and Robbie Brenner are producing. [...]
Variety caught up with new Alien vs. Predator 2 directors Greg and Colin Strause who revealed what we can expect from the Fox sequel. "AVP2," written by Shane Salerno, is scheduled to begin shooting in September for an August 10, 2007 release.
"We really want to take it back to the original 'Alien' and 'Predator' films and make a serious, gritty horror film," Colin Strause said.
"We want to take it back to its roots, without losing sight of the human struggle," added Greg Strause. "That's what made the originals so good."
Davis Entertainment's John Davis and Robbie Brenner are producing. Davis Entertainment also produced the first film in the franchise, as well as "Predator" and "Predator 2."
IGN FilmForce first reported the news that 20th Century Fox may have signed special effects artists-turned-directors Greg and Colin Strause (aka the Brothers Strause) to helm Alien vs. Predator 2 (aka "AVP2"). The brothers themselves have now confirmed the news at their official website.
In addition to their award-winning work as music video and commercial directors, the Brothers Strause also run Hydraulx, which has provided special effects work for such Fox films as X-Men: The Last Stand, Fantastic Four and The Day After Tomorrow. [...]
B-D zitiert einen Statisten, der mit Ewan Bremmer über AVP2 gesprochen hat....
[...] You may remember he was in 'Alien Vs. Predator,' he played 'Miller'. I was asking him about the movie, and he said that Fox is doing another one next year. He said that NONE of the original cast, including Lance Henriksen, will be involved in the film. It will be set "in a different time... again."
He has heard that the studio really wants to get Sigourney Weaver to do one. Apparently she was going to do a new "Alien" movie, with James Cameron/Ridley Scott, before AvP, but it didn't come off.... so they did AvP instead.
It'd be great to see Weaver in Alien vs Predator 2 as Ripley, but I'm pretty sure she "hated" the idea of the film initially. [...]
UGO sprach kürzlich mit Ridley Scott, u.a. über das "Alien"-Franchise....
UGO: [...] if you were to do another Alien movie, how would you like to approach it given your evolution as a director since the original?
RIDLEY: If I "was" going to do another Alien movie, I would have to re-design it. He's no longer scary, and I think there's a new franchise, which has kind of blown that away, I think.
UGO: Do you mean Alien vs Predator?
RIDLEY: Oh, please. It's a pity in a way, because I was kind of beginning to address it, looking at it again, thinking there may be something there that we can go with one more time. I think you can't stay with that beast any longer. You've got to change it. It can't be as simple as that. I mean, the first thing I would have gone back to was [H.R.] Giger. I'd have gone back to where I started, basically. But yeah, the Alien movies, one continuously improves or sustains the quality of these films. Thank God for the digital market, actually, because these films can be seen instead of fading away in some creepy old negative. Now they're preserved in other ways. [...]
Bei AICN gibt es eine vernichtende Kritik zu einem "AVP2"-Drehbuchentwurf von Shane Salerno... Vorsicht SPOILER !!!
[...] Final calculation, taking all the decent work into consideration, it’s catastrophic. It’s really that bad a script. If fans don’t already feel like whipped dogs, they will by the end of this, and the sad thing is, they’ll buy just enough tickets to guarantee Fox makes another one of these, if only for DVD, in the future. Because it’s so cold and crass and calculating, so pointless a retread of the work of the genuine talents involved in the franchises previously, this is the one that feels like the stake in the heart of both properties. This is the announcement that they’re not remotely interested in continuing the films in a way that expands the great work that already exists. It’s creatively bankrupt in a way designed to take the least effort for a return. It’s a bitter pill to swallow, having to kiss off both franchises for the time being, and all I can hope is that there’s a genuine rebirth later. This certainly isn’t it. [...]
Expect a full announcement as early as tonight, but 20th Century Fox has announced an August 10th, 2007 release for Alien vs Predator II, according to various sources. No details have been revealed [...]
AICN sprach mit James Cameron, u.a. über "Alien 5"...
QUINT: I remember before Paul W.S. Anderson did ALIEN VS PREDATOR it came out that you kind of made an offer to do another ALIEN film with Ridley Scott...
JAMES CAMERON: Yeah. Ridley and I talked about doing another ALIEN film and I said to 20th Century Fox that I would develop a 5th ALIEN film. I started working on a story, I was working with another writer and Fox came back to me and said, "We've got this really good script for ALIEN VS PREDATOR and I got pretty upset. I said, "You do that you're going to kill the validity of the franchise in my mind." Because to me, that was FRANKENSTEIN MEETS WEREWOLF. It was Universal just taking their assets and starting to play them off against each other.
QUINT: Milking it, totally.
JAMES CAMERON: Milking it. So, I stopped work. Then I saw ALIEN VS PREDATOR and it was actually pretty good. (laughs) I think of the 5 ALIEN films, I'd rate it 3rd.
JAMES CAMERON: I actually liked it. I actually liked it a lot.
QUINT: You know, I hate it when movies don't abide by the continuity of their series...
JAMES CAMERON: When they make up their own rules.
QUINT: Exactly. They did that a lot with the alien incubation time, where from egg to chestbuster it happened...
JAMES CAMERON: In minutes, yeah...
QUINT: That kind of stuff really pissed me off with the movie...
JAMES CAMERON: Well, it starts to become a video game. It's like, "Okay, that can be in him and that can show up over here..." It becomes more metaphorical or more comic book. I don't mean comic book in a negative way, I just mean that it's working at a kind of mythic, metaphoric level as opposed to really trying to immerse you in reality.
I mean, I felt when I was making ALIENS I think the same thing Ridley was doing with ALIEN, which is... "I'm going to make you think this is real." Even though it is completely ridiculous deep space adventure. We were going to make you feel like it's real. It's a question of does the film take itself seriously or not.
KRAKEN: So you still thinking about doing something with it?
JAMES CAMERON: No. [...]
Blackfilm.com sprach mit Sanaa Lathan...
[...] Outside of the urban films that you have done, there's "Alien V. Predator". Just recently, Fox executive Tom Rothman was heard stating that the studio has a script for a new film and the 2007 would be a release date. Have you heard of that? Were you approached to come back for a sequel?
SL: I know that if they want me, I'll have to do it because I had signed a 2-picture deal. If they don't want me, they can hire somebody else, so we shall see.
Did you have fun shooting that film?
SL: Oh yeah, absolutely. I don't of things like within urban market. I guess every job is a job. I got to spend five months in Prague, which on one hand was great and the other hand is hard to be so far away from your family and friends. It was a great learning experience for me. All of the crew was English and German and they treated me like a princess, but it was hard work. Lots of running and screaming and fighting. [...]

TR: Yeah, uh, Hutch would know actually better but I think they just got the script, they just got the script in...we are making that movie, it's gonna be kick ass (smiles).
Q: How soon?
TR: We're hoping for August of 2007 release. That's what we hope. [...]
Moviehole sprach mit Lance Henriksen....
[...] Henriksen also chatted up the full-speed-ahead sequel to "Alien vs. Predator" and a possible "Alien 5" with Ridley Scott at the helm.
Henriksen, who played Bishop in the "Aliens" series, says if the writers can work out a way to bring him back for either film - he'd "love to do it".
"I love Ridley's work", Henriksen says of the "Alien" (1979) helmer. "How could you not? I think he single-handedly, with Alien, bought science-fiction into the A-list".
If FOX and Scott did re-team for another "Alien", Henriksen says he'll "be there".
Fox money-man Tom Rothman caught up with IESB at the premiere of "Fantastic Four" and decided to wet our under-briefs with news on a potential "Alien 5", with Ridley Scott returning to the helm.
"Every time I see Ridley Scott he still talks about Alien so there's always a possibility [of him doing the next one]", he says. "I don't think it's near-turn, I think he has a couple of other movies he wants to do first, but we have a deal with Ridley and it's always possible".
Rothman says that first up the studio's got a sequel to "Alien vs.Predator" in the works - which he's aiming to get into darkened rooms by 2007.
SciFi.com berichtet über "Alien vs. Predator 2"....
The sequel to Alien vs. Predator is happening and will most likely center on a battle in our world, 20th Century Fox Film Co-Chairman Tom Rothman told SCI FI Wire at the Saturn Awards in Los Angeles.
"We will do another one of those for sure. It was a big success," Rothman said in an interview before he received a Life Career Award from the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films.
"In the new Alien vs. Predator they will finally actually really come to our world," said Rothman. The previous Alien and Predator movies took place in the future, and Alien vs. Predator took place in a remote Antarctic location, though in modern times. The new film could bridge the gap between all the movies and the two horror film franchises, Rothman said.
"It's likely that we will bridge the gap, and the beginning of that will be setting it in our contemporary universe," said Rothman. He laughed when the characters were likened to terrorists. "They were always terrorists, yes, but only metaphorically," he said.
IGNFF sprach mit Ridley Scott....
Towards the end of last year during IGN FilmForce's interview with Sigourney Weaver, the actress discussed the future possibility of re-teaming with the director of the original Alien film, Ridley Scott.
Today, FilmForce had the chance to pose the question directly to Scott. "She should have asked me the second time," Scott says with a tinge of resentment. The room laughs, but apparently Scott is serious that he was not asked to return for the second film. When asked to reiterate if he was ever asked, he smiled and answered with a resounding, "No."
All hope is not lost, although Scott's response as to whether he might ever consider returning was a pretty stock answer. "It's all to do with the material. If the script is great, of course." [...]
Bei SF Wire gibt es einen Kommentar von Ridley Scott....
[...] Scott added there's one SF story he doesn't want to revist: a fifth film in the Alien series. "No," he said with finality. "I think they've wrung it dry."
Now Playing Magazine sprach mit Paul Anderson über die AVP-DVD....
[...] in AvP I’d originally written a different opening. It started in 1904, 100 years before the bulk of the movie takes place. And it was a really interesting opening and we’d spent quite a lot of money doing it, but then you looked at the whole film and you really thought it had too many openings because it was in space, then it was in Mexico, then it was in New Mexico, then it was on an ice waterfall. It just seemed like one too many, so we ended up taking it out. But looking at it on the branching DVD, I’m glad we got a chance to show that to the audience, because it’s something we really liked. [...]
Moviehole sprach mit dem SFX-Künstler Alec Gillies über AVP2 & Co....
So what can we expect first, an "Alien vs. Predator 2" or solo "Alien" and "Predator" sequels?
Everything that I'm hearing from the studio suggests that there isn't going to be another Alien movie. And definitely not another Predator movie. They (the franchises) had been declining at the box office steadily, with each film. The box office just tapered off.
So this was a nice shot (AVP) - combining the two characters. After all, they had proven themselves to be successful in the comic books and computer games.
The consensus seems to be, the fans would love an "Alien 5" with Ridley Scott back in the drivers seat though.
Personally, I don’t think either franchise is dead - we get people coming up to us and saying we loved [Alien] Resurrection, or [Alien] number three was my favourite and so on - and who wouldn’t want to see Ridley Scott do another Alien film? But I don’t know what the budget of that movie would be because the reality is, I don’t want to say they’re cult films, but they’re not movies that make a hundred million dollars. But that’s why they’re hoping to get folks like Ridley Scott involved. I’d love to see it. I think there are worlds there to be explored. I think its hard to create the magical that you had with the first one, Cameron did it beautifully by expanding... and the more sequels there are the more parameters are set up. At some point, you have to burst out of them.
I’m hoping with the AVP sequel that we’ll be able to go into some different directions that haven’t been explored yet. [...]
Now Playing Magazine sprach mit Paul W. S. Anderson über seine mögliche Beteiligung an "Alien 6"...
[...] "That’s not a reality," he says. "I’ve heard that. I’ve been doing press lately for AvP and a lot of people said that. I don’t know where that came from. It’s not something I’ve been approached about."
And more to the point, Anderson is thinking that someone has their numbers mixed up.
"What happened to Alien 5 anyway?! Who’s doing that?!" he laughs, before adding that he thinks AvP shouldn’t be considered the fifth film in the Alien series. "I would hope [it’s not looked at that way], because it’s a prequel anyway, so it doesn’t even take place in the same timeline as the Sigourney Weaver film. You know, when I did AvP, it was very much that I felt like I was making a standalone film that wouldn’t interfere with an Alien 5 or a Predator 3, which are both movies that I would like to see."
When asked what he would like to see from a new Alien picture, the filmmaker has the perfect fanboy answer: "I’d heard that Cameron had his idea for it so I’d like to see that!"

Blickpunkt:Film liefert eine Kritik zu AVP...
Empire Online sprach mit Paul W. S. Anderson...
[...] How about a sequel?
I'm not attached to any sequel. I never really made the movie with the intention of making a sequel. I wanted to do it as a stand-alone film that could hopefully succeed in its own terms, but also re-energise both franchises. So that Fox could go: "Well, that made a lot of money! If you want to see Predators and Aliens again let's make a Predator 3, let's make an Alien 5." [...]
UK Teletext reports that British director Paul W. S. Anderson ("Alien vs. Predator", "Resident Evil") is to write the sixth movie in the "Alien" franchise, according to sources close to the film maker.
Newcastle-born Anderson, 39, has apparently been asked by Twentieth Century Fox to pen a new script featuring the creatures on their own (ie. no Predators). Whether that includes the return of Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) however is unknown.
The offer for the moment is simply to pen the script, not to direct as such although that may happen thanks to the success of AVP.
Bei mySaN.de gibt es eine Kritik zu AVP... Und Dread Central sprach mit Paul W. S. Anderson über seine nächsten Projekte...
[...] "AVP has opened huge - number one in virtually every territory it has been released - and it's shaping up to be the biggest grossing movie from either of the franchises, knock on wood. So Fox is definitely making noise about a possible sequel."
Ananova zitiert Sigourney Weaver bzgl. "Alien 5"...
[...] there will probably be a fifth Alien film, but she won't be in it.
"I know there's a script, but I haven't read it", she said.
"Never say never, but I'm pretty sure this thing is over for me," she added.
[...] Talking to an insider at FOX in Century City a couple of days back , I heard that there's high hopes for everything 'Alien' and 'Predator' - what with the pleasing B.O figures for "Aliens vs.Predator" and all. Despite not even being previewed for critics (probably just as well, I caught it yesterday and thought it sucked more than Pammy Anderson)the film has made quite a packet over the past couple of weeks, leaving FOX with a fat smile on their face and everyone who has got an idea for a sequel, spin-off or stand-alone movie very, very optimistic, if not giddy with possibility.
The plan is - new stand-alone "Predator" movies, new stand-alone "Alien" movies. No sequel to "AvP" at the moment. If anything, "AvP" was a way of a re-introducing these characters so that there could be new stand-alone films in their respective series. Never was it a plan to do a series of "AvP" movies. [...]
As for "Alien", the latest is that it'll be a Ridley Scott - Sigourney Weaver re-team. Talk is underway, but it's still early days. Wouldn't be surprised if it's hurried though. [...]
Bei Bloody-Disgusting gibt es ein Interview mit dem AVP-Drehbuchautor Peter Briggs, der einige Aussagen von Paul W.S. Anderson entkräftet...
Mr. D: Anderson says all the best scenes in 'AvP' have been cut?
He did?? Really!? That's...fairly unbelievable. I've got several drafts of his script from over the last year or so, including the last few shooting drafts, and...he said that? What "best scenes"? Pretty much what he wrote in the script's up there. The only major thing of any consequence I'm flashing on is a daft scene where the Predator strips out the Alien's brain and plays chicken-claw with it. There's a peachy coffee table book of the A.D.I. effects work that I picked up at the Comicon, and there's some pics of that in there. It's not like Anderson wrote a lot of fight scenes in his thing to begin with. And I don't think either of the opening scenes were ever filmed? There's some dialog that's been trimmed, sure, but...?
Mr. D: Anderson insists if we'd seen the "real film", it explained away the alien's growth through the machine the Predators built to accommodate the Queen, pumping her full of accelerative hormones.
Well, that's...enlightening. I have no idea where he's getting that from. It's not mentioned in any line of dialog, or even scene description, in any of his drafts I've read. [...]
"Aliens vs.Predator" has done quite good, a lot better than expected, so don't be surprised if "Alien 5" - or a "Predator 3" for that matter - happens now.
Sigourney Weaver still seems to be keen for it too. According to the IMDB, Weaver's keen for the fourth sequel to a smaller film, something suspenseful."I always said to Tom Rothman, who runs Fox, that I thought it would be interesting to do a small, spooky movie, more like the first one; a psychological thriller that could take Ripley to whatever the next stage may be. Which side would win out, the Jekyll or the Hyde?"
In an interesting side note, "Aliens vs.Predator" has been classified 'M' for its release here in Australia. An 'M' in this country is the one up from family-friendly PG. Whether this higher rating for Australia means we'll get to see a more grisly cut I don't know.
Bloody-Disgusting zitiert AVP-Regisseur Paul W.S. Anderson, der sich zur PG-13 Freigabe äusserte... Immerhin gibt es Hoffnung für die DVD... *g*
[...] "All of the best scenes were cut." Anderson was obviously very annoyed at the way the film was released. However, this was not purely because of the PG-13 limitation, which incidentally, the studio enforced THREE WEEKS before the release date! It was always going to be R until then. Part of the reason for the cutting was that some of the effects were not ready by the time the release date came around. The effects team had very little time to do anything.
As far as the content that was cut, apparently we see all those who die, die on screen, but he also said that there is a sub-plot that we will have to wait for on DVD. Yes there will be an R-rated Director's cut DVD although they don't know the release date yet. [...]

SF Wire sprach mit Sigourney Weaver...
[...] she avoided any participation in the upcoming Alien vs. Predator movie, but would not rule out one day reprising her star-making role as Ellen Ripley. Original Alien director Ridley Scott "and I have talked about doing a movie where we'd go back to the original planet and get rid of them once and for all," Weaver said in an interview. "I'm not sure where my allegiances would lie, but that would be the main reason why I'd be curious to go back and sort of see inside of Ripley who would win."
Such a film is hardly a sure thing, Weaver acknowledged. "I'm not very organized, and I'm always pretty busy, so it's not like I'm writing the treatment and sending it to Ridley and saying, 'We've got to do this,'" she said. "I think it's an interesting series, but I'm happy with what we've done. We haven't compromised it. I really did die [in Alien 3] to avoid any contact with Alien vs. Predator. That was why I disappeared after the third one, because I'd heard that was an idea."
Asked flat-out if she thinks she portrayed Ripley for the last time in Alien: Resurrection, the fourth and last movie in the series, Weaver paused and then replied, "It doesn't feel complete to me, for some reason." [...]

The Space Jockey and his species will NOT be featured in the film.
The reason that the cast is so diverse is that Anderson wanted the character of Weyland to pick the best scientists from all over the world to join the expedition. That explains the French woman and the Italian archeologist.
There are no plans to make sequels to any of the Alien or Predator films. AVP is the new franchise.
Over 80% of the effects featured in the movie are practical.
This confirms then that if AvP is a success, there will be no Alien 5 or Predator 3 so Fox will most likely concentrate on the sequel to Alien vs Predator. [...]

FW : With you as Director?
RS: I don't think I'll be directing, but I will have some involvement. It'll probably be based on an idea I have, so I hope I'm asked to be involved.
FW : Can you talk about the idea?
RS : In broad terms, It's something for those folks that want to see Ridley's Journey come full circle and..
FW : Does that take her to the home planet of the Aliens?
RS : She won't necessarily see the home planet, but you might...
FW: Do you know when this will happen?
RS : Fox are waiting to see how Aliens vs Predator does, and then they'll do the Alien movie, and I believe a Predator film too. Again, if I'm involved in it, great, if not, then that's luck of the draw.

[...] Peter Weller (RoboCop) will be making a brief appearance as billionaire industrialist "John Yutani" opposite Lance Henriksen "Charles Weyland," CO-owners of the greedy corporation in the Alien universe palpably named Weyland-Yutani. Weller (Yutani), who plays Weyland's darker half, will be the person who influences Henriksen's "Weyland" character to take part in the latest archeological dig in a strategic move to gain full control of the company. While not knowing of the imminent danger his associate is yet to encounter, Yutani knows of Weyland's ailing heart condition and means to benefit from his partner's untimely demise by sending along a company assassin. What bothers me some is the similarity from both the first RoboCop and Alien movie dealing with the rather cliche corruption bit, but this is merely supposed to be a precursor. Here's to hoping Anderson doesn't park this flick in the rehash zone for too long. [...]
