Director James Cameron recently make public comments on the Aliens movie franchise. 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 Alien vs. Predator flick.
Here's what he had to say:
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.
Hopefully FOX will pounce on those comments and open the door to get Cameron back behind the camera for another Alien film, then perhaps the blind folded FOX execs will eventually, with him, see that AvP is a sure fire hit!
