Alien 5

Does anybody know anything about another sequel.
I heard the Aliens reach Earth and Sigorney Weaver will be in it (even though she only just escaped twice, died, was cloned with part Alien DNA and attacked again- would she really want to?)
I read it on a site which I can't get to load anymore, so I can't give you anything else.

The site was http://www.wolfevents.co.uk/sq-online/
and it does load now.
no idea really, would not surprise me although the last one was a little weak anyway i thought?
I've heard that there may be another alien film, which is typical after I bought the box set of the 1st four :rolleyes:
I don't know any more about it though...I'll keep my eyes peeled though...
hehe.. yes i also have the dvd boxset. I will be annnoyed as well!
I think they now have a licence to bring back Ripley as many times as tehy want for sequels (for as long as Sigourney wants to ;)), they can keep on cloning her...
But would it make a good premise for a film? It would be essentially the same as Alien Ressurection, they would be cloning her for the same reasons, only the support cast and location would be different..
I have read in 'The Sun' newspaper this week something about Alien 5. When I find the article again I'll quote it for you.

Alien 5

Hi I've found the article. All it says it that

Sigourney Weaver has signed on the dotted line to star in Alien 5 for a cool £8 million. It will be set on earth this time.

Don't want to burst your bubble but ...


Alien 5 Not Alive

Once could speculate that there is a guy who sits in his room and, every now and then, fishes through the feast of genre movies in development hell, picks one at random, and refreshes the long-dead rumor that it will finally get to the screen. This month Alien 5 gets an airing, only to be debunked by the woman in the know, Sigourney Weaver.

The mammoth sum of $22 million was offered up this time around, a figure that would have made Miss Weaver the highest-paid actress in the world. Sadly though, it was all fanboy dreaming, as the woman who put the RIP into Ripley revealed.

"I was interested to read that I was doing it for a phenomenal amount of money," Sigourney told Syndicated. "Unfortunately, it wasn't true. At least the sum. And I haven't really talked to Fox about making another. People come up to me on the street saying, 'Hey, Alien 5! Great, when's it gonna happen?' And I go, 'Wait, wait, wait a minute!'"

So, once again sent to its room without supper, the fifth Alien outing seems to have vanished from our sights. Still, wouldn't it be better to wait for Joss Whedon to be free enough to take on the project again? Yeah, we thought so too.

Don't you just hate it? They come out with a fancy boxed set and then they make another sequel and put out another boxed set with it in it and just to make it look appealing they tell you that there are added scenes, etc. that aren't available on the first. ;)

yeah thats about right.... :rolleyes: But I would just get the Alien 5 DVD I think, not a new box set.... so :p to the publishers :D
The Sun.

I've already told you not to believe what you read in 'The Sun'.

I think an 'Alien' film set on Earth would cost them too much money in sets, never mind Sigorney Weavers wages. You can't just film endless metal walkways, you have to have them go downtown. They would need to be very sure it was going to be a box-office success first.
screw Weaver, the 5th Alien film is close to being green-lighted without her... with RIDLEY SCOTT returning to direct a prequel that explains the origins of the species.

Ridley Scott Weighs Up Alien 5

Director Ridley Scott is seriously considering making a new Alien film - explaining where the terrifying creatures came from. Scott directed the first movie, 1979's Alien, from the four film franchise starring Sigourney Weaver, and is now trying to finalize a story for Alien 5 - which he sees as a prequel exploring the creation of the killer alien life forms. He says, "I'm seriously mulling it over. I think it would be a lot of fun, but the most important thing is to get the story right. We should go back to where the alien creatures were first found and explain how they were created. No one has ever explained why. I always figured a battleship carrying bio-mechanical organisms that could be weapons was sent into space with some space jockey who didn't last."

the first good Alien V news to come by so far.
That sounds like a much better idea, with the right story, as Ridley Scott said. The original film sort of hinted at some company conspiracy around the aliens, so finding out about their origin -- bio-engineered for warfare, or whatever -- would be interesting.

Set on spaceship and alien world sets, and not paying Weaver $8 Million would make it more likely to be achievable.
Anyway it is still a couple of years from the Real-realese date. As i understand it is still in early stages of pre-production. So it seems that we'll have wait along time until Alien5 sees the lite of day.
I for one will not be rushing to see it. I couldn't stand the first 4.

annette :D
