In a conversation with reporters Radio Times Sigourney Weaver shared her thoughts on the upcoming revival of “ Alien ”, and also admitted that the change in the vector of development of the popular film series at one time, the studio 20th Century Fox turned out to be guilty, which decided to remove the crossover with "Predator".|
“I asked to kill Ripley in the final of the third part, because the management of the film company wanted to continue our story of" Aliens vs. Predator ", - said Weaver . -I didn't like this idea at all. I agree with James Cameron, who once said that bringing these two monsters together on screen is as silly as filming " Alien vs. Wolfman ". Ridley Scott did not agree with the views of Fox on the future of the franchise, who had to leave the director's chair of the triquel. With the movie " Alien vs. Predator " studio bosses have chopped a lot of wood".
Studio Fox has been developing the idea of a crossover " Alien " and " Predator " since the early 90s, but was able to implement this project after Weaver has returned to her role as Ripley in Alien 4. At the beginning of this year, Neil Blomkamp was entrusted with working on a new film in the series, who will have to correct old mistakes and find a way to shoot a direct sequel to Aliens.
“I'm delighted to have Neal appointed as he is a true fan of the franchise, Sigourney said. -He was peering to the holes of the videotapes with these films. It's great that he will be able to realize his childhood dream and shoot a blockbuster about Alien . "
