Cameron reunites with a pair of ALIENS actors in AVATAR?

Hey folks, Harry here... First I want to clear something up. The reason that "part two" of the Cameron interview isn't here - is that it hasn't happened yet. When James had to deal with the Malibu fire situation - well, doing the second half of our interview evaporated next to well the crazy situation that he faced. Since then, there hasn't been time, and we're hoping to finish up sometime soon. Meanwhile - some interesting word is hitting. I've had multiple sources tell me that Michael Biehn is in AVATAR. In addition - word comes today that Sigourney Weaver has alluded to being in an upcoming film of Cameron's. I'm betting that it's AVATAR. When next I speak to Jim, I'll get his perspective on these 'rumors' - but it sounds good to me.

Hello Harry, I come to your site every day, and i've heard something tonight that might interest you. I haven't read anything about it yet on any swebsite or newspaper: Sigourney Weaver was invited on a show called "le grand journal" here in france, and she was asked if she would do another "alien"... She said no, she said that everything has been said about this creature and for her, it's over.. BUT she said that she will be making a big sci-fi movie with james cameron... But she didn't want to talk too much about it... Yet i don't know if it's "battle angel alita" or "avatar"... That's it, you can call me "jerome" And continue, i just love to come by and read your articles. Jerome

    SIGOURNEY GOTTA...Neah, forget it!

    by DynamixRo

    I'm guessing she'll have just a small role. And what about linda Hamilton, doesn't she also need a major career boost? I would have mentioned Michael Biehn as well but at least he has "Grindhouse". :)

    "I like to keep this around for close encounters." Biehn is so awesome. Now all we need is for Paxton to sign on to have a complete Aliens reunion.

  • Jan. 17, 2007, 4:33 p.m. CST

    Well, there is a role I can see her taking in Avatar.


    There's the older woman working with the Avatar program who basically trains Josh (his name was Josh in the script) how to work his Avatar. The script (like everyone here hasn't read it,) describes her as being older and not much to look at in her waking life but slender, sexy and fierce in the form of her Avatar. Or she may take a role that Jim re-wrote into the new drafts of the script. Cool with me either way. The cooler news for me would be seeing Cameron and Biehn re-team. I'll be wearing my BIG happy hat if that comes to pass.

    Fake or not? SATURN 3 remake by Jim and Schwarzenegger?

    by ABking

    After Mars Arnold Visits "Saturn"? James Cameron and Arnold Remake "Saturn 3"! Reported By: Saturday, January 13, 2007 James Cameron, Arnold friend and movie director, has just announced not only will he get back into the director chair for AVATAR but he is also considering Schwarzenegger for a new Sci-fi role a few years down the road! Several fans, including Shannon, wrote TheArnoldFans and informed us of a "Saturn 3" remake! Shannon writes: Hi Arnold Fans, Wasssssup!? Ypu probably already heard, but on KISS-FM with odm tonight they mentioned that Cameron - while tanking on about "Avatar" and how the script is apparently terrific - also has plans to produce a remake of the Kirk Douglas movie, "Saturn 3" and possibly have 'The Old Governator' (direct quote) play the robot.

    by Sledge Hammer

    ...Avatar even more would be casting Biehn in the film, as, moreso than any of Cameron's band of actors, I think he's always been on exactly the right wavelength with Cameron's intentions for the story being told in every single Cameron film that he's appeared in. That said, it'd be cool to see Henriksen and Paxton too, as neither has appeared in a good film, or had a really good film role in quite some time.

We got nukes. We got knives, sharp sticks..." "Knock it off, Hudson!" Ha, great stuff in that movie. Anyway, I've honestly really cared too much for Michael Biehn. Don't get me wrong, he was alright in Cameron's movies, but he never really left me impressed. I've always preferred Bill Paxton, who I think is a better actor and is also much more amusing to watch. Hope Paxton gets a role in Avatar.

    ...honestly I doubt Arnie will ever return to movies, much less make a return to action oriented ones, he's gone all 'respectable' now, and the fact that he stuck around to go for a second term shows that it wasn't just a whim. You might see him pop up in a cameo for one of his hollywood pals here or there, but I think ol' Arnie has moved on.

    regarding Sly yack

    by wanna_bannana

    Man you really do have a thing for the man, i agree the man has some serious charisma, and as much as i loved ~the first~ Rocky..most of those Q@A's were pretty lame, i mean how come no one asked him about "Rhinestone" with Dolly Parton? i mean when i watched that movie as a kid i LOVED it, even now i have a soft spot for it, and think that it took some big Jabronies to make that flick. And him singing old macdonald...i think i still have the stain from where i peed myself. It takes talent to pull off such a bad roll like that and still come out unscathed. I will give you this...Copland was a great performance for Stallone, he needs more like those. He needs to let the "image" that is sly go, and take on riskier rolls, that he can let loose and bring in an oscar. Maybe something with controversy, or invest in an independent film. There is an australian movie that i own and am rather fond of called "Bad Boy Bubby" About a 40 something male who lives with his mother in a small apartment, and everytime she leaves the apartment she makes him sit in a chair at the table and tells him not to move or he will die, and then she puts on a gask mask when she leaves the apartment...because she says the "outside world is poisoned" and he stays in that seat ,goes to the washroom in the seat,because he is to scared to move. It is a hard movie to watch and is alittle fucked, but the acting is brilliant, and it is not as vomit inducing as the love scene in "alone in the dark" All in all Sly should take on something alittle out of his "image" realm

    by wanna_bannana

    You liked what "bubby" did to his cat? I assume you meant that you were shocked by the potency and harshness of that scene, as to the fact that his mother had him so sheltered that he did not know right from wrong or had no real concept of death? because if you actually "liked" what he did to his cat i would have to respond with a " you scare me, and ...never talk to me again" but i will assume the first of the two =) because i am only slightly a bitch. But if you are actually a woman, then it would be okay either way, because women can do no wrong =P thats right yack or Vult if you "dudes" are reading this, you just keep your pickles in your pants because i am not attempting to find another woman on this site to hit on...i just figured i would clear that up now, i do know how witty you men can be, and am sure that would be the next statement from youse two monkeys....because you are original and predictable like that eh? =)<p>Love yah both

  • Jan. 18, 2007, 2:42 a.m. CST


    by Sledge Hammer

    ...yeah, I agree with you on that. One of the things that film websites like this should be actively doing far more of is spreading the word about films that don't have an advertising budget or star power to get the public eye. Sure, occasionally you get some reviews/news on the foreign or indie side of stuff, but usually it's only on the 'cool' name indies that aren't really all that indie when it comes right down to it, and which were always destined to garner some attention due to the people attached to them. <p>It's like every year that people complain that there were no good films made that year, what they usually mean is that they didn't see any good HOLLYWOOD films that year, but yet still didn't bother to expand their horizons to check out films that didn't cost multi-millions of dollars and have a big name world famous lead. There's a whole world of great cinema out there, but some of it you just have to look a little bit harder to find and experience, especially these days. So anything that helps with that is very welcome indeed. <p>I mean hell, we have columns for tv, comics, a largely useless games roundup, so why no indie spotlight? Something to get the word out about films that many people otherwise would never even hear of or know to look for. I understand that the big name films are going to continue to draw most attention, but there's plenty of room for all those other, oft neglected, corners of filmdom, it's just a shame more light isn't shined their way more often.

    Anyone ever see the Battle Angel anime?

    by Doc_Strange

    I remember seeing it in the early 90's. It was pretty cool, good action, gratuitous nudity, gobs of blood, and some good cyber-punk elements, basically everything that one looks for in anime. Also, I believe the ninja character design was stolen by Rob Liefeld for use in one of his shitty comics. The only thing I didn't like was the ending. It just seemed very tragic and unfulfilling. I'm not aware if they ever made any more after that and I don't know how well it would translate to the big screen but I think Cameron's up to the task.

    by godoffireinhell

    Yeah, I saw it too. It's OK but nothing special. It may be a good thing it's out of print. Anyway, the anime covers the first four volumes of the manga IIRC and there is a TON of material happening afterward. So, if you are interested to find out the rest of her adventures buy the comics.

    Where shall we have our light conversation? Because while the top talkbacks are based around Aliens, Spider-Man, POTC, and the gratuitous Optimus Nipples & Gotta Eat Flames (or was that a spoonerism I was thinking of?) I'm afraid this isn't a particularly conducive environment for talk on how "Bad Eggs" is a great Australian comedy that probably no one's heard of, or the affect "Russian Ark" had on me (I consider it one of the greatest European films ever made), let alone asking "how you going, and what's new in your life".

    Apparently the fun has been missed. There was a much loved (by those involved at least) TB that happened on Hannibal Rising which involved about 30 posts revolving around said film and then about 800 revolving around anything from the casting of Thundercats to the origins of the bible.<P>I myself was lucky to be involved in this and if Deus views this I'd love to know how much he got for my cat on ebay

    How could they cut the power man? They're animals? Yeah, Avatar needs some Paxo. Here's something funny - Biehn does K2, Paxton goes up the same mountain in Vertical Limit. They know they belong together.

    I'm sure I've only seen 3 of his films - Terminator, Aliens and Tombstone - and you know what . . .I'm still unsure of how to pronounce his surname<P>Hopefully not pronounced as Michael Benn as this has other repurcussions as any Brit will tell you. (All politics and what not)<P>Would I have wanted to see him in other stuff . . yeah probably<P>Oh and feel free to list several other films he has been in that I have forgotten about

    I thinks it's Bean

    by veebeeyes

    I recall watching some behind the scenes show about the movie The Rock, and everyone was saying "Bean". I could be wrong though. And another great Aliens quote was "Christ kid, look out!" Simple yes, but it worked because of the delivery. And I always chuckled at that quote. Because Hudson is saying it as if to say "look out, there's an Alien there!" Haha, as if Newt didn't already notice.

    My favorite scene in "aliens"<p>Ripley: Well, someone's gonna have to go out there. Take a portable transmitter and patch in manually. Hudson: Oh yeah, sure! With those things running around? You can count me out. Hicks: Yeah I guess we can just count you out of everything, Hudson. Hudson: That's right, man. Bishop: [speaking under Hudson] I'll go. Hudson: Hey, why don't you go, man! Bishop: [more loudly] I'll go. Ripley: What? Bishop: I'll go. I mean, I'm the only one qualified to remote-pilot the ship anyway. Hudson: Yeah right, man, Bishop should go. Good idea! Bishop: Believe me, I'd prefer not to. I may be synthetic, but I'm not stupid.

    I have seen some of vincent Wards work

    by emeraldboy

    I saw The navigator over twenty years when it first came. Next year is its twentieth 20th anniversary. I remember going to see it wit my older brother in the now defunct lighthouse cinema and I was 14 years old when I saw that movie. There is no doubt that ward has great eye and I also saw map of the human heart, that was one of the most visually breathtaking films that I ever seen and the story was really moving, heartbreakingly sad and there is one other film he did that I saw that cant remember the name. He made some film in 2005 with Samantha Morton called the river queen. I also Baraka people of the rainforest and those film with unprouncable names.

    by Big_Bubbaloola

    But the first time I saw it in the cinema, I nearly punched one of the cinema attendants in the face I was so mad about that film. Then I went back 3 years later and enjoyed the hell out of it. I think the reason for the madness was I thought Fincher had ruined the franchise, but I was biased as Aliens was the first 18 rated movie I ever saw. What an eye-opener!!!

    Sir Guy...

    by Leto III need to read Frank Darabont's comments on that subject in the excellent SHAWSHANK screenplay book. During his comments in the book, Darabont takes great pains to emphasize in no uncertain terms (as did Stephen King in the original novella) that Rolston's character Bogs *was not* homosexual -- he was simply a goddamned rapist who turned to men when he couldn't get pussy in lockdown.

    by Leto III

    ...Yeah, apologies if it came off as intense (wasn't trying to sound that way), but after checking the book again, I realize that I was directly (and subconsciously) quoting Darabont's actual verbiage -- he calls Bogs "a goddamned rapist" in the text...though the intent of both the screenwriter and the original author was still that Bogs was a straight man who turned to male-tail after getting deprived of little girls or whatever in the slam.
