According to SuperHeroHype.com, the creators of Alien, Ronald Shusett and Dan O’Bannon, will also receive credit for the story on the Alien vs Predator movie as well as Paul Anderson. Want to know why? Then read this:
“In addition to the “based on characters created by” credit Alien creators Ronald Shusett and Dan O’Bannon will receive on “AVP” alongside Predator creators Jim and John Thomas,Shusett and O’Bannon will also share a “story by” credit with Paul W.S. Anderson. This is because Anderson apparently copied and pasted 40 pages of unfilmed material from the original Alien’s screenplay into the new “AVP” movie. So, in addition to the respective franchises’ “based on chracters created by” credits, the new “AVP” film’s credits will read “story by” Anderson, Shusett, and O’Bannon…Written and Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson.”
It wil be very interesting if this turns out to be true.
