“I’m Working On That” – James Cameron on Making Blomkamp’s Alien 5 Happen

Though Neill Blomkamp has moved on from his Alien 5 project, it would seem James Cameron is not quite ready to let it go! While on the red carpet of Alita: Battle Angel, IGN (via The Terminator Fans) had the chance to ask James Cameron (who produced Alita along with Predators’ Robert Rodriguez) about the upcoming Terminator 6 and Blomkamp’s Alien 5.

IGN: “After Tim takes care of that can you give Neil Blomkamp a call about Aliens please?”

James Cameron: “I’m working on that, yeah.”

Sir Ridley Scott was actually attached to produce Alien 5 with Blomkamp, but Cameron had seen Blomkamp’s script and described it as “gangbusters.” Though far from any form of confirmation, it sounds like Cameron may be stepping up to bat for Blomkamp’s Alien 5 after the project fell apart in 2017.

    Disregarding Sicario and arrival , BR 2049 was more than enough proof for me that he has what it takes . He is as close as we are going to get to old school Ridley Scott ever again . And the industry is fortunate to have a director of his style and abilities.

    If we ever get to see another alien film in the spirit and quality of the original , it will be because he was involved.

    Das it.

    Enemy has Gyllenhaal as well.

    The future is Villeneuve

    I actually enjoyed Enemy more than his other movies. Maybe I'm weird, but I thought Enemy was almost a perfect movie. Almost. Arrival kind of lost the logic at the end but was otherwise pretty good too. The direction was phenomenal either way.

    Enemy was brilliant.
    That's the one with Jake Gyllenhaal, yeah? Fantastic film.

    Speaking of James Cameron...it would seem he is under fire.



    I just hope it won't be something that will be used to prevent a good alien movie.The smallest of things these days can be blown up to untold proportions over nothing.

    It's a word! "To consternate" is the infinitive, "consternating" is valid, and so is "consternated", which is just fun to say but might give the listener the impression you've got bowel problems.

    "Consternation" is the most common form of the word in English, but all of its other variants are totally real.

    It sounds like having a great deal of dismay at not being able to do a poo.

    It is common in French. "Consternant". I hesitated to use it in English, but checking with Google it seems to be understandable, albeit not an usual part of English syntax (if I get things right).

    The "disgusting triggered woman" face in the lower left corner tells everything there is to know about the youtuber's politics. Consternating.

    Consternating needs to be an actual word.

    "Alita Battle Angel". So that's what Cameron is up to nowdays. Guess he gave up on his space smurfs. People need to stop giving sjws so much attention. Just laugh and let them go butthurt at their isolated corner on twitter.

    Their little fire won't be enough to touch Cameron.

    Ugh, keep the politics out of here.

    Re potential future directors, one director could hit it absolutely out of the park and garner universal praise, that man is Denis Villeneuve, however I find Riddles' crazy divisiveness infectious. ;D

    Cameron's last movies are an ode to whitewashing and his "strong" female characters are merely one level above the chainmail bikini warrior. OF COURSE most progressive-minded people won't appreciate him a lot.

    (Which doesn't mean they hate him. Generally speaking, social justice circles are pretty much indifferent to the casual level of undeliberate misogyny random cishet men such as Cameron display. There's just bigger fish to fry, there's Weinstein and Polanski and Lars Von Trier etc.

    And to say Battle Angel Alita Gunnm has problems of sexualization is just stating the obvious. Alita Gally is oversexualized and objectified. She's already presented that way in the manga for that matter.

    The (shitty) movie downplays that aspect but doesn't remove it.



    TL;DR: This youtuber is just another reactionary fanboy whining about two critical SJW posts and a bitter Twitter comment.

    Who created the Arcturians? Cameron? Did he ever commented on what he intended them to be?

    Dan O'Bannon actaully.  :laugh:

    They are just a joking reference to O'Bannon's and Moebius' graphic novel, The Long Tomorrow. Cameron had lots of esoteric nods to the original creators of Alien in his film.

    Has Cameron ever acknowledged it was a reference to this?

    Kirby or Moebius Silver Surfer?

    Denzel knows for certain.

    Nice curves. She seems like a feisty gal. I'd find a way to make it work.

    So this was the kind of comics Cameron was into back then.  :laugh:

    Now... that's why it doesn't matter if the tentacle thing is male or female, they all turn on a female looking human anyway. Frosty did nothing wrong.

    Arcturian's canon appearance confirmed.  ;D

    Before you edited it I thought you were laughing because of how ticklingly true it is, because...
    Well, they aren't wrong.

    It was more due to the way the author expressed that. Regardless, my interest was on hearing Cameron's comment on this but I guess I won't see that.

    If I'm recalling correctly the "it doesn't matter when it's Acturian baby" was ad-libbed. It's not in any of the drafts and I think Ricco Ross mentioned that in his I Was There Too interview.

    And did he say anything in regards to the Arcturians? Colonists or aliens?
  18. Drukathi
    If look at an Arcturians, as a humans, what if ... Origae-6 is located in the Arcturus star system! Yeah! And arcturians is a humans who was modified by David!

    Or! Remember engineers from Covenant - they all looks similar. Who know where a man or a woman is here? May be Arcturians are not unkown alien/human-like race, but another engineers colony! And their world is like Planet 4.

    "Simply treating the language as it is, and without getting into a discussion on the Drake/Vasquez relationship, is there anything in the discussion preceding and immediately following the Arcturian poontang that suggests a progressive world view from these marines? I don’t think so."
