This is an interesting move by Fox. The page with the AvP2 script review on AICN has now been replaced by a message from the author telling us that Fox ordered AICN to remove the review.

“Fox seemed particularly upset, though, saying that it was unfair of us to review a first draft, and that they aren’t even sure they’re going to make or release the film right now. Of course, they announced a release date for next summer, which would suggest that they have to start filming soon, and I seriously doubt they’re going to redevelop the entire property from zero at this point.”

I’m not so sure this is good news at all. This pretty much confirms that this was the script AvP2 was/is going to be based upon. What you need to ask yourself is can any improvements be made to this script even if they re-write it? Just like the guy in the article said, Fox aren’t going to just re-write another one from scratch. I think it’s more worrying that Fox even entertained the notion of using this script in the first place.

This whole AICN script incident just proved that AICN was right on the money to post the review... I applaud them for being our 'voice of reason', by presenting us with a evidence that prove that FOX's recent  management are unwilling to evolve the Alien or Predator franchise, but just to cash in on the gullible fanbase that know better... I am a fan, but not that much... I loved the movies, ones more than others, and I was appaled when I found out that FOX had a script for Alien 5 being developed by Jim Cameron and they dismissed it to do AVP instead...And we all know how that turned out to be... So I have to seriously question where Fox's priorities and allegiances lie, to the fans or their stockholders... It remains unclear...Though their reaction to AICN review surely frightened them, which may or may not be a good thing, we will see in 8 months (     :o  )...
