[I 150w aliens I ] points to an interview in that would allegedly bring James Cameron back to the director's chair of a fifth ALIEN film. While this may be tempting words for 20th Century Fox, it's on the condition that the franchise does a complete 180 degree turn. Here's what the article had to say:
"The ALIEN franchise is a different story, though. Cameron, who directed 1986's ALIENS, says he's eager to resuscitate the series with a new movie, one that he hopes will draw fans back after the dreary ALIEN 3 (directed by Fight Club's David Fincher) and Jean-Pierre Jeunet's disappointing ALIEN: RESURRECTION. But he'll only do it if Twentieth Century Fox abandons its plans to torpedo the franchise with a cash-grabbing ALIENS VS. PREDATOR flick.
'I said, 'Look, that's WOLFMAN MEETS FRANKENSTEIN.' It's like when you're cleaning out the closet, and you find these poor old relic films down at the bottom and you put two of them together.
'So whenever you're ready to pronounce (the ALIEN franchise) dead, you go and make that film. I'm sure they're not going to like that comment, but that's the way I feel about it. Let's not pronounce it dead yet.'"
Strong words, and Cameron is known for changing his mind several times before committing on a project. So whether Cameron commits to another ALIEN film or whether Fox dumps ALIENS VS. PREDATOR (to be helmed by RESIDENT EVIL'S Paul W.S. Anderson) remains to be seen.
Cameron's latest project is an IMAX 3-D film called GHOSTS OF THE ABYSS - a documentry on the Titanic wreckage. It is getting outstanding reviews. He also says his next project (which will not be ALIEN 5) will be a major motion picture in the 3-D technology they developed for GHOSTS IN THE ABYSS.
