Hey folks, Harry here with a tidbit out of that really cool Japanese DVD magazine, Famitsu Wave... This seems to give hope that a quality ALIEN film as well as a stand alone PREDATOR film may be on the rise after the release of ALIEN VS PREDATOR, which I genuinely hope Paul W.S. Anderson did a good job on, otherwise these plans may all get fucked to hell. Here ya go... sounds promising...
Top of da' morning to ya!
Ridley's been promoting "Matchstick-Men" on DVD. Here's the interview from 'Famitsu Wave', or some of the good bits, he did with in which he touches on these "Alien 5" rumors. Still soundz a little up in tho air, but interstsing all the same. if you can use, good, if not, keep on the good news!
FW : Is Nicolas Cage an easy man to work with?
RS : Nic is the most gracious, giving, talented person one could hope to work with. He's so far removed from everything Hollywood represents. Best thing about Nic is he can do anything - anything..
FW : Do you think he tarnished his career by doing popcorn action movies?
RS : Not at all, money talks sir. If there's room for him in the new Alien movie, we'd love to get him. He's a guy that chooses the movies he does on the terms 'would he like to see this movie'?
FW: And what of the rumor of another Alien movie?
RS : We have been talking about doing another one for years. It's been a complex situation. At the end of the day, a studio has to be pleased, a core audience has to be pleased, and a director has to agree to all that. I am glad to say things are progressing...
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 Ripley'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.
