Alien Resurrection: The 10 Best Quotes From The 1997 Movie

Alien Resurrection: The 10 Best Quotes From The 1997 Movie
Alien Resurrection saw the triumphant return of the excellent Ellen Ripley following her unfortunate demise in the final act of Alien 3. Obviously, 20th Century Fox had other plans, and Sigourney Weaver was keen to step back into the role that made her such an iconic actress. Although the film received critical panning, it was an excuse to dive back into the universe that Ridley Scott began so many years prior.

Storied stuntman Ernie F. Orsatti, who is best known for falling 30 feet through a glass skylight in the 1972 film “The Poseidon Adventure,” has died. He was 80.

The Stunt Players Directory Facebook page confirmed his death, writing: “We are saddened to hear of the passing of legendary stuntman Ernie Orsatti.

New Alien Movie Probably Won't Revisit Prometheus or Covenant Teases Ridley Scott

New Alien Movie Probably Won't Revisit Prometheus or Covenant Teases Ridley Scott
Ridley Scott has given a new Alien Prequel update. The director has returned to screens in his new series Raised by Wolves. Since the director is out doing some press for the HBO Max series, the questions inevitably lead back to the Alien franchise and whether or not another movie is on the way. Scott confirmed that a new movie is in the works. He had this to say.

"That's in process. We went down a route to try and reinvent the wheel with Prometheus and Covenant. Whether or not we go directly back to that is doubtful because Prometheus woke it up very well. But you know, you're asking fundamental questions like, 'Has the Alien himself, the facehugger, the chestburster, have they all run out of steam? Do you have to rethink the whole bloody thing and simply use the word to franchise?' That's always the fundamental question.

Ridley Scott Says New ‘Alien’ Film Is Coming, but Likely Won’t Revisit ‘Prometheus’ World

Ridley Scott Says New ‘Alien’ Film Is Coming, but Likely Won’t Revisit ‘Prometheus’ World
Ridley Scott has returned to the world of dystopic sci-fi as executive producer on HBO Max’s post-apocalyptic series “Raised by Wolves,” and the show’s android-centered conceit has naturally raised the question of whether we should expect a new “Alien” movie any time soon. In a new interview with Forbes, Scott teased the future of the franchise, and said that a new film, while in the works, isn’t likely to revisit the worlds set up by 2012’s “Prometheus” and 2017’s “Alien: Covenant.”

“That’s in process. We went down a route to try and reinvent the wheel with ‘Prometheus’ and ‘Covenant,’” he enthused. “Whether or not we go directly back to that is doubtful because ‘Prometheus’ woke it up very well. But you know, you’re asking fundamental questions like, ‘Has the Alien himself, the facehugger, the chestburster, have they all run out of steam? Do you have

Chucky TV Series Sets Brad Dourif to Return for the Title Role

Chucky TV Series Sets Brad Dourif to Return for the Title Role
Syfy’s recently trailer-teased Chucky television series just made a move that will likely assuage skeptical fans of the classic Child’s Play horror film franchise, the return of the murderer-possessed-doll’s definitive voice actor, Brad Dourif.

Indeed, the Child’s Play band is getting back together, with star Dourif now secured, joined by creator Don Mancini and perennial producer David Kirschner to tackle a most intriguing small screen proposition with Chucky. The series, which manifests under the NBCU umbrella via Universal Studio Group’s Universal Content Productions, will enjoy the platform of two major cable channels in corporate cousins Syfy and USA Network; an advantageous position that just improved, having secured the sinister cackle and brutal one-liners of Dourif’s voice role, which he’s thus-far fielded for seven of the franchise films.

Syfy’s Chucky will see the eponymous effigy stir chaos in an idyllic American town in which he

Dourif is the first cast member announced in the series.

In the new television series, a vintage Chucky doll turns up at a suburban yard sale and throws an idyllic American town into chaos as a series of horrifying murders begin to expose the town’s hypocrisies and secrets. Meanwhile, the

Could Ripley Return? Sigourney Weaver Still Loves Her ‘Alien’ Character

Could Ripley Return? Sigourney Weaver Still Loves Her ‘Alien’ Character
The last Alien movie to feature Sigourney Weaver’s character, Ripley, was Alien: Resurrection back in 1997. Since then, the franchise has focused on prequels, but there’s a glimmer of hope that Ripley’s story may not be finished after all. There have been rumors about a potential Alien 5, with much of the gossip focusing on [...]

Sigourney Weaver Might Be Returning For New Alien Sequel

Sigourney Weaver Might Be Returning For New Alien Sequel
Sigourney Weaver’s performance as Ellen Ripley in the Alien franchise made her an icon of science fiction, appearing in four Alien movies up to now. But she hasn’t played the role since 1997’s poorly received Alien: Resurrection (aka Alien 4). That abeyance, however, could well be coming to an end.

According to trusted Hollywood insider Daniel Richtman, the actress may soon return to the franchise. Typically cryptic in his latest tweet, the tipster simply stated that Weaver could “still come back,” though stopped short of revealing any further details.

There is a logic to this, though. While Weaver hasn’t attached herself to any Alien project since Resurrection, she’s always maintained that she would return for the right script. And with new landlords Disney in town, it’s possible at long last that that script has been delivered.

So Weaver could still come back to the Alien

Alien Producer Reveals Treatment For Fifth Movie With Sigourney Weaver

Alien Producer Reveals Treatment For Fifth Movie With Sigourney Weaver
Alien: Resurrection is widely considered a low point for the iconic sci-fi franchise and was hardly the sendoff Sigourney Weaver‘s Ellen Ripley deserved. Plans to set this right with a further sequel have been mooted on more than one occasion but have never come to fruition, most likely because series mastermind Ridley Scott chose to pursue a raft of prequels to the 1979 original, rather than plot out further adventures for the kickass heroine.

Following Alien: Covenant‘s underwhelming box office performance and Disney’s big-money acquisition of Fox, rumors of a fifth entry in the mainline Alien saga have been bandied about, but it appears there’s some truth to them. Long-time franchise producer and writer Walter Hill has just revealed a screenplay treatment for an all-new sequel featuring Weaver‘s Ripley.

The 50-page treatment for Alien 5 was co-written by producer David Giler, with whom Hill co-wrote Alien 3.

‘Alien’ Producer Drops First Details of New Ripley Film: ‘A Meditation on the Franchise’
Sigourney Weaver sent a shockwave through “Alien” fandom last week when she revealed franchise producer Walter Hill had sent her a 50-page script treatment for a fifth movie centered around Ellen Ripley, the action icon Weaver has played in films such as Ridley Scott’s 1979 original “Alien” and James Cameron’s 1986 sequel “Aliens.” Weaver, who hasn’t played Ripley since 1997’s “Alien Resurrection,” suggested the character deserves a break from the big screen. In a new report published this week by SyFy Wire, Hill is confident Weaver and Ripley have what it takes to pull off a fifth “Alien” movie.

“Sigourney, as she has from the very beginning, is being too modest about her proven ability to pull off the idea,” Hill said in statement. “[The idea] is to tell a story that scares the pants off your date, kicks the ass of a new Xenomorph, and conducts a meditation on both

‘Alien 5’: Producer Walter Hill Confirms A New Treatment Featuring Ripley Was Completed In March
The ‘Alien’ franchise is at a crossroads, yet again. Every so often, the sci-fi franchise has to figure out the proper way to move forward. In the past, that has included ill-conceived/badly-executed sequels (‘Alien: Resurrection’), spin-offs (‘Alien vs. Predator’), and most recently, prequels (‘Prometheus’ & ‘Covenant’). While some of those do find momentary success, the franchise has sputtered for decades.

Is Alien 5 Finally Happening? Sigourney Weaver Teases New Treatment and Ripley's Return

Is Alien 5 Finally Happening? Sigourney Weaver Teases New Treatment and Ripley's Return
Is Alien 5 back on the table? At the very least, there is a new idea floating around that would bring Sigourney Weaver back once more as Ellen Ripley. The question is, would the actress be willing to reprise her most iconic role? That is up for debate, but it is not an impossibility.

The idea of bringing Ripley back for another round of Xenomorph madness has been on the table for some time. During a recent interview, Sigourney Weaver addressed Alien 5 once again and revealed that franchise producer Walter Hill has a 50-page treatment for the movie. Hill showed the treatment to Weaver about a year and a half ago. No plot details were disclosed at this time. However, Weaver has her doubts about coming back. Here's what she had to say about it.

"I don't know. Ridley [Scott] has gone in a different direction. Maybe Ripley has done her bit.

Sigourney Weaver Received 50-Page Treatment for New ‘Alien,’ but Ripley ‘Deserves a Rest’

Sigourney Weaver Received 50-Page Treatment for New ‘Alien,’ but Ripley ‘Deserves a Rest’
The future of Ridley Scott’s “Alien” franchise is unclear, but one thing that’s almost certain is it won’t include Sigourney Weaver’s original hero Ripley. “District 9” filmmaker Neill Blomkamp spent years developing a fifth “Alien” movie centered around Weaver’s character only for the plans to fall through. However, franchise veterans still want to see Ripley return in a new “Alien” movie.

Weaver confirms to Empire magazine that Walter Hill sent her a 50-page treatment for “a different take on a fifth Ripley film” within the last year and a half. Hill is best known as the director of films like “The Warriors” and “48 Hrs.,” but he’s also served as producer on every “Alien” movie and has a story credit on James Cameron’s “Aliens.”

Weaver would not disclose what Hill’s 50-page treatment entails, but she did say that she’s not too eager

Ridley Scott reveals his desire to re-evolve the ‘Alien’ franchise

Ridley Scott reveals his desire to re-evolve the ‘Alien’ franchise
Ridley Scott has opened up about his desire to keep the ‘Alien’ franchise going with a possible third film to round out the prequel series of movies.

In an interview with The Los Angeles Times, Scott opened up on how a further instalment of the film could answer a few questions that not only he has, but the franchises loyal fanbase.

“I still think there’s a lot of mileage in ‘Alien,’ but I think you’ll have to now re-evolve,” Scott said. “What I always thought when I was making it, the first one, why would a creature like this be made and why was it travelling in what I always thought was a kind of war-craft, which was carrying a cargo of these eggs. What was the purpose of the vehicle and what was the purpose of the eggs? That’s the thing to question — who, why, and

Gladiator 2 Producer Reveals When The Film Will Be Set

Gladiator 2 Producer Reveals When The Film Will Be Set
There was once a time, not that long ago, when a movie’s story being resolutely concluded meant that there was no chance of a sequel. However, that was when an interminable succession of series installments were firmly lodged under the law of diminishing returns and not a crescendoing spectacle ever increasing in scope. As such, Gladiator 2, a sequel to Ridley Scott’s swords-and-sandals epic, is in the works, and it’s now been revealed when it’s set.

When Gladiator was released in 2000, it was the second-highest grossing film of the year, beaten only by Mission: Impossible 2, which eclipsed everything so thoroughly it wasn’t even funny, and didn’t even get points knocked off for introducing Limp Bizkit to the world. Given that the story ends (spoilers for a 20-year-old movie) with the death of its hero Maximus and his afterlife seeing him reunited with his murdered family,
