An Alien vs Predator writer isn't happy with Sigourney Weaver's sniping about the film

23 July 2015 9:17 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sigourney Weaver had another snipe at Alien vs Predator this week and one of the writing talents behind the project isn't best pleased.

Peter Briggs wrote a spec script for the project way back in summer 1991 based on the Dark Horse comics series which came out the previous year. He later sold it to 20th Century Fox.

In a 1,000-plus word response to Weaver's comments, Briggs takes issue with the idea that Weaver wanted her character Ripley killed off in Alien 3 on hearing of the spinoff, which she also claimed discouraged Ridley Scott from returning to the series.

"Once again, I heaved a sigh that she just can't stop scratching this itch," Briggs told Bloody Disgusting.

He added that Weaver's chronology was off, because producer Larry Gordon told him that Alien vs Predator was only under discussion at Fox days before his then-agent Steve Kenis gave him the script »

Disney to adapt young adult novel Dumplin

22 July 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Variety is reporting that Walt Disney Pictures has snapped up the rights to Julie Murphy’s upcoming young adult novel Dumplin, with the studio in talks with Michael Costigan (Prometheus, Brokeback Mountain) to produce.

According to the site, Dumplin “centers on a confident teen girl — named Dumplin’ by her former beauty queen mom — taking a job at the local fast-food joint. She meets a former jock whom she likes and he seems to like her back. When she begins to doubt herself, she sets out to take back her confidence by doing the most horrifying thing she can imagine: entering a beauty pageant to show the world that she deserves to be up there as much as any skinny girl does.”

Dumplin will be published on September 15th.

Sigourney Weaver has no love for Alien vs. Predator movies: 'They stopped Ridley Scott from returning'

20 July 2015 4:26 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sigourney Weaver is definitely not a fan of the Alien vs. Predator films.

The movies were much maligned by hardcore fans of both individual franchises, but did turn a profit for 20th Century Fox.

Alien is now getting a proper sequel from director Neill Blomkamp and lead actress Weaver, who vented about the spinoffs at London Film and Comic Con last weekend.

"I heard that Fox was gonna do Alien vs. Predator [around the time of Alien 3]," Radio Times quotes her as saying. "Which really depressed me because I was very proud of the movies."

The star went on to say: "I've nothing against building a movie on a video game, but at the time, it was, as Jim Cameron said I think publicly, 'Why would you want to do that?'

"It's like making Alien Meets the Wolfman."

Weaver also blamed the spinoffs for being directly responsible for Alien director Ridley Scott cancelling plans »

Sigourney Weaver Says Ridley Scott Dropped 'Alien 3' After Learning 'Alien vs. Predator' Was Developing

20 July 2015 12:50 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The "Alien" franchise is in state of flux at the moment. Ridley Scott went the prequel-ish route with "Prometheus," while Neill Blomkamp is somewhat retconning the series with his upcoming installment set between "Aliens" and "Alien 3." As fans know, Sigourney Weaver's Ripley dies at the end of the David Fincher directed "Alien 3," but what is less well known is that it was the actresses' idea. As the script was developing for the franchise's third movie, Weaver made it clear she wanted a minimal role for Ripley, and eventually landed on wanting her character to pass away. But besides giving Ripley a heroic exit, there was another reason Weaver has revealed for her character's demise. "...I heard that Fox was gonna do 'Alien vs Predator.' Which really depressed me, because I was very proud of the movies,” she told the Radio Times.  “I’ve nothing against building a »

'Alien Vs Predator' Was Responsible for Ripley's Death in 'Alien 3'

20 July 2015 11:26 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Many fans still can't quite embrace Alien 3, with some considering it the worst movie in the franchise. Some hate it simply because it kills off beloved character Ripley at the end, sending her to a fiery death. And though she was resurrected as a clone in Alien Resurrection, many simply aren't willing to forgive director David Fincher and his sequel for what it did. While speaking with London Times at London Comic-Con this past weekend, star Sigourney Weaver confirmed it was her decision to kill off Ripley. Though, we shouldn't blame the actress. Alien Vs. Predator is the real culprit to blame!

While 2012's Prometheus is considered a prequel to Alien, the true Alien franchise came to a close with 2004's Alien Vs. Predator and 2007's Aliens Vs. Predator - Requiem. Neither of which set the box office on fire. Most fans of the long-running series did not enjoy either crossover, »

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation tracking soft at the box office

17 July 2015 1:14 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We are less than an fortnight away from the return of Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt in the fifth Mission: Impossible film, Rogue Nation, but it may face a slight uphill battle at the box office if early estimates are to be believed, reports Variety.

Opening on July 31st, Rogue Nation is tracking behind many of the year’s biggest films as well as those immediately around it such as Marvel’s Ant-Man. Early indications are that the film is on course for an opening Us weekend of around $40 million, which is slightly lower than some had predicted even though it would be above the $29.8 million opening of the previous film, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.

Despite the opening weekend estimates, it is thought that the fifth entry in the franchise could very well take a similar path as Ghost Protocol and play consistently well through its opening weeks. The fourth »

Neill Blomkamp teases new Alien movie with Sigourney Weaver concept art

17 July 2015 9:34 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Neill Blomkamp continues to tantalise fans of the Alien franchise with concept art from his sequel.

The filmmaker has kept fans in the loop with his vision for the film throughout pre-production, and his latest concept art depicts Sigourney Weaver as badass alien hunter Ellen Ripley once again.

#alien going very well. Love this project

A photo posted by Brownsnout (@neillblomkamp) on Jul 16, 2015 at 12:07pm Pdt

Michael Biehn's Corporal Dwayne Hicks, first seen in 1986's Aliens, stands at her side.

Blomkamp also wrote to his Instagram followers: "#alien going very well. Love this project."

It was through the enthusiastic response to concept art that Alien 5 was officially greenlit.

His sequel is said to follow in line with the spirit of Aliens, without ignoring the events in the later sequels.

Neill Blomkamp Reveals Ripley & Hicks In More Concept Art From His 'Alien' Movie

17 July 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Remember a few weeks ago when we wrote about movie franchises that maybe should never have been franchised in the first place? “Alien” could be one of them. Ridley Scott’s terrifying original is still remarkable, and James Cameron’s sequel “Aliens” managed to expand the universe by switching genres into the action war movie to great effect. But from “Alien 3” through the “V. Predator” team-ups to Scott’s recent “Prometheus,” all the other films in the series have been disappointing from one degree to another.  It remains to be seen if Neill Blomkamp can revive the series successfully. The South African at the helm of “District 9” was also behind the deeply disappointing “Elysium” and “Chappie,” has moved on to develop a new “Alien” picture that would see the return of Sigourney Weaver to the role of Ripley, moving alongside a potential sequel to “Prometheus.”  “Alien” fans cooled »

'Alien 5' Concept Art Has Ripley and Hicks Ready for Battle

16 July 2015 1:50 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Don't mention a movie for a few months, no matter how big the title, and it will quickly disappear from the public consciousness without a lingering thought. There has been no talk of Alien 5 in severally months, but director Neill Blomkamp has returned with an update. There is no huge news to report. The process is going very well. And we do get a new piece of concept art featuring some much beloved classic characters. But that's about it.

It seems like back in March, when Chappie was coming to theaters, Alien 5 was the hot talk of the moment. A day didn't go by without new information leaking out. The director himself was keen on sharing plenty of Concept art. And we heard plenty about the possible story from both Neill Blomkamp and Sigourney Weaver, who were on their Chappie press tour at the time. We even heard a small »
