“I cannot explain how over the moon my sci-fi self is !! I’m still pinching myself. Repeatedly. Sci-fi has been my escape ever since I was a little kid. The infamous Sigourney Weaver as Ripley was the one hero I ever taped up onto my wall. I cannot express. I’m ready to work my ass off and give this project all the blood, sweat, and tears. So, so thankful. Here we go !! 👽♥️⚡️”

    Quote from: Gimitko on May 18, 2023, 04:47:58 PMGiant Freaking Robot is now reporting Ridley is doing his own Alien series with Michael Fassbender and Katherine Waterson. To be taken with a ginormous grain of salt, despite GFRs previous Alien report turning out to be true.

    It's GFR, so I'm absolutely sure it isn't true. But also, I would be very down for this to be true (even if I'd prefer the continuation of David's story to be in a film).

    There were rumors years ago about two shows being in development, one being Hawley's and another one being Scott's, long before Hawley's was ever actually confirmed. Pretty funny that some silly asspull of a rumor from GFR of all places circles us back to that rumor now... :laugh:  I guess one might say it is... Destiny;)

  3. insulting perhaps ?
    The infamous Sigourney Weaver ? The woman who made Alien ? People recognize the Alien franchise. Sigourney Weaver also star's in Avatar, I just find the element of expressing Sigourney as infamous as a insult, off topic but she was nominated at the Oscars for best actress for Aliens

    They were looking for a "Danai Gurira type" for this role, someone with comedy chops and martial art skills. Looks like the character of Wendy was reworked at some point, maybe because they were really impressed with Sydney.

    Am I blind? I think the controversy with the Romulus casting age group is very silly, but Sydney Chandler is only 2 years older than Cailee Spaeny. I've seen very little comments about Sydney being too young so far... but a lot of the discourse for Romulus has been how the movie will fail because of the young cast.

    Maybe I'm stretching here, and maybe there's a lot of shit talking that I haven't seen. Just something interesting I've noticed.

    It's so good to have actors who love the franchise involved, but it all comes down to the writting in the end and today marks the beginning of the Writers Guild Association strike. Idk how far along the production was in terms of the scripts. I hope it all gets sorted out soon and writers are fairly compensated for their work.

    Quote from: Nightmare Asylum on May 01, 2023, 10:34:48 PMDamn, GFR made another correct call?

    I remember in 2021 they wrote an article saying Henry Cavill and Bryan Cranston would be in a spy movie together. A month later, 'Argylle' was officially announced, with a crazy cast, including Henry Cavill and Bryan Cranston.  :P Still a mystery to me, how GFR can have 2 or 3 true, real and interesting scoop in a year alongside a hundred fake.

    Anyway, it seems like a great choice! Happy to know that she's a fan of Ripley and Alien.
