Title: Alien V - Facts and Rumors Compilation (Provide Links)
Post by: Perfect-Organism on Feb 27, 2015, 09:37:01 PM
It's become impossible to get facts on what's going on with Alien V through the forums.  It's all conjecture...

So once again, this is rumour control.  Here are the facts...

(Please post only facts here.  Comments can go elsewhere.  By facts I mean confirmed quotes by the studio, actors, director, producers etc.  At least this will be close to factual.  Production pictures or relevant photos or videos should go here as well.)

Here is a link to the confirmed news on AVP Galaxy:

Technically this isn't a fact but it is understood that we will not get the full picture for a while and this is a case of putting together the pieces of a puzzle.  As long as it isn't an opinion post, but a collection of news bits, things like this belong here:

Looks like according to this, Michael Biehn will reprise his role as Hicks.

BD article about facts:

The key line which is getting lost in all this:

20th Century Fox is behind it, and Blomkamp is officially signed on to develop it. Read that sentence again. This does not guarantee a thing. This does not promise that Blomkamp's eventual sequel will get greenlit, it also does not guarantee Weaver's return as Ripley. It sure as hell doesn't lock in the resurrection of Biehn's Corporal Hicks. All this means is that he's being paid to officially develop it.

There's more discussion on Digital Spy as well: http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/movies/news/a631526/new-alien-movie-secrets-revealed-sigourney-weaver-michael-biehn-to-return.html?utm_source=tw&utm_medium=dsuk&utm_campaign=twdsuk#~p5N1f5nh48TJLw (http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/movies/news/a631526/new-alien-movie-secrets-revealed-sigourney-weaver-michael-biehn-to-return.html?utm_source=tw&utm_medium=dsuk&utm_campaign=twdsuk#~p5N1f5nh48TJLw) in which Weaver and NB are talking like it is going to happen.

And, when asked at the end if Rippers and Hicks will be back he says "Hopefully, we'll see them."

I propose that this thread is especially for dropping news links as they are reported.  I would consider those as "fluid facts" which may be subject to change.  This is a good place to paste all of the articles prior to sifting through before they go to the official news section.  The key is to avoid opinions and commentaries in this thread as it will quickly become very lengthy and searching the news posts will be impossible...

With thanks to: Tough little S.O.B.

"It's the inverse in that now I get to make the third film of the first two, which I think never happened. I think they made the first two and then went off the rails with these other ones. I wanna try as a fan to fill in that gap. It all stems from being probably one of the most ego-less directors in Hollywood and I think that that plays a big role. If you're inward focused and narcissistic and thinking about your fans then that's when weird shit starts happening. If you stay grounded then you can make stuff that actually is balanced and has something to say. I don't want to give much away but what I can say confidently is that Alien and Aliens are my favourite films and where it went after Aliens was incorrect to me as a fan. I didn't want that world, I wanted the first two and that's what I want to go back to."

I reckon that's just his view, Rakai - as he says he "hopes not", but I'm sure Ridley and Cameron felt the same way, but that won't stop Fox from dusting off AvP if Black'n'Blom's movies are hits.

Shared universe might be something they'd steer clear off, but I don't know - not now that F&S is officially the new canon (it is isn't it?) and done away with all other EU stuff?

This would be my face right now. A sheer look of potential defeat.

I liked the AvP movies, the first one probably just as much or more than you (I can do without Requiem). But with the direction which Fox is going in, and a direction which I don't agree with.. I really hope we don't get something done like how Marvel is doing with the films.
Title: Re: Alien V - Facts only
Post by: Russ on Mar 07, 2015, 05:04:33 PM
I think Marvel really have it nailed as far as the fanbase goes - I love Marvel movies (I'm a bigger DC fan, it has to be said) but I've kind of suffered from not seeing Cap America II and Thor II. I used to watch Agents of Shield, but what I found was you have to be bang up to date with the movies as well because they reference things that you may not have seen. In S2 of Shield, I was totally lost because I didn't know what they were going on about half the time.

It's pure fan service - and in a good way as I'm in minority not having kept up with the movies, but I can't let that take away from the brilliant work they've done with linking and connecting all this stuff up.

I think that would be possible to do with A(vP) too, but it's a big call for them to make. I really do think AvP3 will see the light of day, but I wonder if they'd be brave enough to reference Black'n'Blom's films... I just don't know.

I guess it depends on how they handle AvP3 - what they think the market is. It wouldn't be hard to make a more cerebral take on the "versus" aspect, but I imagine it'll be all about the demographic in that Aliens and Predator are (obviously) cinematic works where as the Versus is based on a game.

I don't think these retries at Aliens and Predator will inform the versus movie at this stage. But sequels might?

Folks let's keep this thread limited to facts (or at least the closest thing we can get) only.  There are plenty of other commentary sections in the forum.

It looks like there may be 2 Alien films from Blomkamp!

I  personally count,

Predator, Predator 2, Shane Black's Predator, Predators, Prometheus, Paradise, Alien, Aliens, (A3 & A:R) Neill Blompkamp's Alien III.

So we're already on eleven, likely to be getting 12 and 13 if things go well with both Paradise and N-B's Alien.

This is purely conjecture. Surely FOX will want to continue the franchise but Blomkamp is merely acknowleging the room for more than one film. And many, many of us have noticed that there are massive gaps and a lack of clarity in the time line that can be exploited and this is likely all he is noting as well. There is plenty of space b/w ALIEN and ALIENS and no reason to rule out the space b/w ALIENS and ALIEN3...

But this does seem to confirm that his film is filling one of these gaps. Possibly both. But one thing can be certain - these reporters don't know what they are talking about when they place his film bw ALIEN and ALIENS because Hicks wasn't hit with acid yet, nor introduced to the story.

The only way this could be between ALIEN and ALIENS is if Ripley deliberately doesn't want the company to know about whatever happens between those two films, and the same can be said for it taking place after Aliens.

Of course Blomkamps film could take place between both films. Meaning he can introduce something bw Alien and Aliens then pick it back up after Aliens.

But right now ALL CONJECTURE. No facts.

Or y'know if you really want to do a story with Hicks & Ripley- you're better to outright ignore one of the films to make that story rather than idiotically dancing around it with clones/memories/dreams crap.

I can see more films in both "timelines" yes, but do I think films in the A3 timeline will include Hicks and Ripley?

To quote A3 "No f*cking way."

Its entirely plausible to place a film between Aliens and Alien 3 without treading on the events in either film. I worked it out in my head the other night and watched Alien3 to confirm what I had come up with. Nothing in Alien 3 would contradict a story between Aliens and Alien3, and if you handle the ending of it properly, it could make Alien 3 a better film.
The problem really is the aging process. In Hicks case, his face is largely covered. But in Sigourney's they would have to work on it with CGI ala TRON Legacy.

This may not be what he wants to do, but there is conflicting evidence to explain whether this will outright retcon 3 and 4.

I am also strictly against cloning and dreams. Dreams, especially.
In truth, I would rather they continued without Ripley altogether than retcon ALIEN 3.

No it's corny no matter what way you do it, it isn't happening.

And for the hundredth millionth time this isn't a retcon, A3 isn't being erased but it is being ignored which equates to an alternate timeline-
I don't get what's so difficult to (accept &) understand about this.

Are you serious? What differentiates a RETCON from an ALTERNATE TIMELINE?

There are still multiple reports on a regular basis that provide conflicting info. Blomkamp's words say "I get the opportunity to fill in the gap" and "I'm not trying to undo 3 and 4"... You taking that confusion and creating some difference between a retcon and an alternate timeline is odd. There is no difference, unless Fox were to literally try and destroy all future copies of ALien3 ... Is that what you think constitutes a retcon? A retcon implies an alternate timeline. Its the same thing.

Now, unless I've dreamed this stuff myself - over the years, fans, like Blomkamp, who dislike the third film have been going on and on (for decades now) about how something else has to have happened to get the egg on the sulaco - so it doesn't seem in the least bit strange to suggest that he intends to make his film that something, apart from the age difference which has been accounted for by much lesser franchises like TRON in the past.

Do I pretend to KNOW this is what is happening? NO.

But neither do you and your assertion that an ALTERNATE TIMELINE is somehow not implied by a retcon is just bizarre.
A retcon automatically creates an alternate timeline.

To me you have more to lose if you go with ignoring films. Because then if it sucks or is poorly received - which i think is inevitable. Considering peoples conflicting opinions on several alien films. So i just feel like the only rite way to go is forward and either improve on 4 or just leave ripley out of it. If it was me id make and alien series for cable and leave it alone.
I actually like blomkamp - the end of chappie went a bit downhill - but i expect to like this film but fans to end up wishimg alien 3 never got retconned. I expect any third part of a trilogy to be devisive by default and i think history repeats itself
But i also expect to like the movie.
Im iust laughing at the very little it takes to get people excited over what has no guarantee to be good.
Title: Re: Alien V - Facts only
Post by: Son Of Kane on Mar 09, 2015, 11:55:02 AM
I fully expect it to be bad, I just wouldn't be able to stomach the "inbetweequel" unless it was after A3 but before A:R and didn't include Ripley.

If you're going to include Ripley it has to either be a retcon or after A:R and considering Ripley 8 isn't even Ellen Ripley to most- only one of those options is viable.

But I could be wrong it could be good, just like "Paradise" the odds are against us- but I can hope.

Alien 5 Updates: Neil Blompkamp fears same plot with Prometheus 2: Sigourney Weaver reprises a different Ellen?

Also, now we are realizing a few subtle elements, albeit,  a number of them could have been speculated from the fine art. For one thing, in the event that there were any uncertainty, Sigourney Weaver will in fact return as Ellen Ripley, and this film ought to give fitting conclusion to her character.

Well first post since March if I'm not mistaken.  I was considering if this news about the cancellation of Alien Identity belongs here in this thread, and I think it does.  It appears that the Alien Identity fan film conflicted too much with Alien V so the production was shut down by Fox.

This first came up in May on Twitter. Neill replied to an article calling the claim that Alien 5 would be filming in Vancouver "horseshit". Considering how candid he generally is I'm inclined to believe its not him covering his back.

That's certainly possible. I did speak to the informant and the source sounded pretty solid.

The current article making the rounds about Ripley hating AvP (not exactly new) did contain some very small news about Alien 5: http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2015-07-19/sigourney-weaver-alien-vs-predator-really-depressed-me

QuoteThe actress was considerably more enthusiastic about a future addition to the Alien series, namely Neill Blomkamp's untitled sequel/reboot for which concept art was leaked earlier this year.

"I'm so excited about Neill – because Neill is like you guys!" she told the Comic-Con crowd. "He broke the tapes of these movies when he was a kid, he watched them so much."

"I love the fact that's Neill's fulfilling his childhood dream of what he hopes will be the popcorn movie, the Alien popcorn movie that he wanted as a kid to see.

It hasn't been officially confirmed Weaver will be returning for Blomkamp's film, but she implied she'd be involved when a fan asked if Ripley could get a happy ending in the new movie.

"Well – it's certainly something we've discussed," she replied. "I agree, she's had kind of a crap life. Many interruptions."

Yep, typical, the one we really want isn't to be. Goes to show how much fans really matter. The storyline on the Bloomkamp movie is too good to be true, something this fan has always wanted to see. I really didn't care for the two movies after Aliens anyway. It was like they knew what fans wanted and decided to screw the fans and write Alien 3 etc. At my age, I'm used to disappointment...

I thought I saw some blurb somewhere that said Bloomkamp's is on hold due to the, ahem...other one being done. Probably an agreement or something. They sound separate enough to me but of course I'm not keen on a Prometheus sequel, so that'll be the one we get.

Blomkamp's "Alien" Film: Update From Ripley Herself

QuoteWell, I *think* it is.  Ridley asked Neill NOT to make our Alien til after Prometheus 2.  He (Ridley) wanted his movie to shoot and be released first.  But it's an AMAZING script, and Neill and I are REALLY excited about doing it.  We're doing other things until we can get going on that.  I'd be really surprised if we DIDN'T do it, because it's such a great script, and we love working together.  So, it's just going to take a little bit longer to get out to you, but it'll be worth the wait.

Well that's something.

If they're going to bring back Ripley and Hicks they can't NOT bring back Newt at the same time.

And if they're bringing Newt back then I'd hope Carrie Henn despite not being an actor would get a shot at it.

Some more news from Collider today

http://collider.com/alien-5-update-sigourney-weaver-neill-blomkamp/

Sigourney Weaver Says Neill Blomkamp's 'Alien' Sequel Gives Ripley "an Ending"

"It's a great story and it's satisfying to me to give this woman an ending... The script itself has so much in it that's so original, but also really satisfies the, I would say, the primal needs of the aliens. It's a tribute to all of the great work that the other directors have done, in a way, but goes in a completely new direction. I hope we'll do it."



"Fox asked us to delay so Ridley could shoot his [second] Prometheus movie. That was too bad because we would have already done it by now. Now that we're waiting for that, I have a couple of Avatars to do and Neill has The Gone World, so we'll have to see what happens when we get back, when those projects are over."




Hmm, could be a while yet.....

Perfect opportunity to say once again:

Ripley had an ending 26 years ago.

I second this.

Here's a good way of viewing this film, as hfeldhaus said.

Ripley has had her ending. This will be a flash of what could have been whilst she falls into the furnace at the end of Alien 3.

Pretty sure that end comment is something we've already heard.


Not the exact wording, but she spoke of Alien 5 being the "most satisfying" ending of the story.

Cameron admired the artistry, but thought they made a bad move narratively by killing his characters.

I haven't heard what Scott thought of it. Come to think of it, I don't think I've heard him talk negatively about any specific film before. Closest I remember is (paraphrasing) 'if I have to see one more superhero movie I'm gonna tear my head off''.  :D

Sir Riddles.  Man, I totally get what he means.  All these mindless spectacles from Marvel are so shallow and brain dead.  Except I'd take what he 'said' just that teensy weensy one step further: "If I have to see one more superhero movie I'm gonna tear my head off and shit down my own neck!"  Yeah.  I guess you wanna see me do that now, huh.

Yeah, I don't think he ever said anything negative about Alien 3. One of his boys, Jake Scott, worked on Alien 3 as an concept artist. Ridley also visited the Alien 3 set during filming.

But I can tell you about his reaction to AvP:  :)

Quote"Peter vs. Charles: [Ridley] wanted to use Weyland as a conduit in the story," explained Damon Lindelof, "and was not at all interested when I said, 'You know, Weyland was a character in one of the Alien vs. Predator movies.' He just sort of looked at me like I had just slapped him in the face. That was the beginning, middle, and end of all Alien vs. Predator references in our story process."

Post by: BlueMarsalis79 on Dec 11, 2021, 09:04:58 PM

Actually I mostly like the franchise the way it is, the thing I love about Alien's that it might be so easy to emulate (superficially anyway) the 1986 film over and over, but it rarely ever does so, instead of rehashing the arguably most popular entry into the dirt, repeatedly following a family lineage and retconning itself over and over again (see Halloween, The Terminator, Star Wars) it's always a different take on the material.

I LOVE Alien The Cold Forge written by Alex White, I LOVE Into Charybdis even more, Phalanx's superb, and a lot more novels to come already announced for next year. And between David's Drawings and them that makes the prequels more than worth it.

And because of the rather mature (even for Alien yes) subject matter explored in each one, with a more controlled traditionally lucrative intellectual property, they might never have got the green light. Actually we can see this in effect now with Marvel's Alien full of tracing and awful storytelling, then compare that to the myriad of creator driven projects with Alien under Dark Horse Press, Kilian Plunkett (Labyrinth), Mike Mignola (Salvation), James Stokoe (Dead Orbit), the list goes on for days.

Alien The RPG's the most profitable and successful in that genre outside of Wizards of the Coast publishing. Alien Isolation's just perfect. The Anthology's only beat by LOTR in terms of the Special Features. The original looks stunning in 4K.

Oh and Noah Hawley, the mind behind Legion, gets free reign on an Alien TV Series and he thinks Aliens and Alien³ both rule?! Yeah I'm really happy with the way things turned out. For the most part.

Blomkamp has a wonderful career ahead of him as... assistant director.
or working at a stupidly titled video game studio that doesn't seem to pay its non-celeb people. (Gunzilla is bound for a big exposé editorial in a year or two).

His Joe Rogan interview was painful. He's thick as a brick. His latest movies are just him assembling a bunch of cool-looking toys in front of the camera without any decent story behind them.

Not to mention that, aesthetically speaking, the concept art for this movie feels seriously dated in what can be best described as "NFT-core"

If Weaver wants to come back, I pray that it's with a better director with a better aesthetic.

It really doesn't at this point.

People have said as much for coming up on eight years now, and it gets more unlikely with each passing day especially with all the media coming out from the franchise that's firmly rooted in the current continuity, do you think if someone at Disney's considering retconning anything we'd be seeing this?

Vanity Fair: What's next for you?

What's next for me, it looks like, an Alien series for FX, taking on that franchise and those amazing films by Ridley Scott and James Cameron and David Fincher. Those are great monster movies, but they're not just monster movies. They're about humanity trapped between our primordial, parasitic past and our artificial intelligence future—and they're both trying to kill us. Here you have human beings and they can't go forward and they can't go back. So I find that really interesting.


Where are you in that process?

I've written a couple of scripts, the first two scripts, and we're looking to make them next spring. When you get to something with this level of visual effects, there's a lot of preparation that has to go into it. What's been really illuminating is to see that the entire film industry had to take a year off and they are now trying to jam two years of production into one year. So it's very hard to look on the planet earth and see where you might make something in the next six months. Everyone is racing to make up for lost time. So, I figure let that bubble burst a little bit and we'll do it right.

Is there anything else you can share about it? Is it part of the Ripley story, or will it be original characters in a different time and place?

It's not a Ripley story. She's one of the great characters of all time, and I think the story has been told pretty perfectly, and I don't want to mess with it. It's a story that's set on Earth also. The alien stories are always trapped... Trapped in a prison, trapped in a space ship. I thought it would be interesting to open it up a little bit so that the stakes of "What happens if you can't contain it?" are more immediate.

Deadly things that can't be contained and the whole world at risk? Sounds relevant to the past year.

On some level it's also a story about inequality. You know, one of the things that I love about the first movie is how '70s a movie it is, and how it's really this blue collar space-trucker world in which Yaphet Kotto and Harry Dean Stanton are basically Waiting for Godot. They're like Samuel Beckett characters, ordered to go to a place by a faceless nameless corporation. The second movie is such an '80s movie, but it's still about grunts. Paul Reiser is middle management at best. So, it is the story of the people you send to do the dirty work.

How does that relate to your series?

In mine, you're also going to see the people who are sending them. So you will see what happens when the inequality we're struggling with now isn't resolved. If we as a society can't figure out how to prop each other up and spread the wealth, then what's going to happen to us? There's that great Sigourney Weaver line to Paul Reiser where she says, "I don't know which species is worse. At least they don't f**k each other over for a percentage."

Well, the best way I think one can answer this question to your satisfaction is begin with seeding another question regarding how would you perceive Shaw and Daniels. Are they Ripley clones to you?

Shaw was somewhat different with whole "What I choose to belive" , wanting to discover what our creators are angle. As much as I love Covenant, I must admit that Daniels was in fact just a Ripley clone. Short hair, tough, leader type, runs around with guns, blows Alien out of the airlock, the end

So it comes down to the writing to you then. Of course if they write Newt as a 38 year old, haunted by nightmares that will only be settled by facing the beast one more time, you'll have your dreaded Ripley clone. But what if she's lived such a more interesting life. Became educated. Explored the sciences. And inspired by her saviors, even spent time in the corps. And we see these life stages in the film. I think a lot of people would be interested to see how her life would progress in a sans-Ripley cinematic installment... maybe drawn to the beast versus obsessed...considering the majority of the general public hold Alien and Aliens (and only Alien and Aliens) in high regard. It would be as interesting as Furiosa films to me, maybe even more. Too bad Anya Taylor-Joy is already taken.  :)
