You may remember a while ago, I told you about the Los Angeles Comic Book & Sci-Fi Convention which featured Lance Henriksen. Over in the Gamegossip Forums El Diablo has just returned from the convention and has written a report there. Here’s the main points:
- The movie will end with a “sting” that will leave the door open for an AVP sequel.
- The Space Jockey and his species will NOT be featured in the film.
- The reason that the cast is so diverse is that Anderson wanted the character of Weyland to pick the best scientists from all over the world to join the expedition. That explains the French woman and the Italian archeologist.
- There are no plans to make sequels to any of the Alien or Predator films. AVP is the new franchise.
- Over 80% of the effects featured in the movie are practical.
This confirms then that if AvP is a success, there will be no Alien 5 or Predator 3 so Fox will most likely concentrate on the sequel to Alien vs Predator. I don’t know about you, but this sounds like very good news to me as I would much rather prefer the AvP franchise to develop than the A5/P3 franchises.
