Hell yeah. Protozoid bringing it home once again. Can you believe some people think SIR RIDLEY SCOTT is a clown here to amuse us. Dance for us Ridley! Us nobodies want to know how you'd make an AvP movie! You said you haven't even watched the movies and think the idea is horrible, but dance for us.

I wouldn't expect any sort of meaningful answer on Blomkamp's film and I wouldn't ask it myself, but it's not my interview either. If he doesn't like the question, he'll just brush it off. It's not like the Corporal is going to ask him how he'd direct a gay porn film, this is AvPG and any Alien related question should be on the table. Sensitive or not, I still think Ridley Scott can handle himself just fine and to suggest it's not proper etiquette to ask about an Alien film he wanted to produce sounds more like you're just biased against it.

It's not disrespectful. No disrespect is intended. You can use anything I've ever said as your signature. I just liked the statement "Ridley Scott isn't above any questions.", just as I favored that Ridley quote previously in my signature. Now, if I edited your quote to say something obscene or silly, that would be disrespectful. 

Heck, SpeedyMaxx has two quotes in his signature.

Anyway... I think the Blomkamp question has the potential to be awkward, but it is indeed the definitive elephant in the room.

But this comment is so off base though. I'm not even thinking of that way. And I've never looked at people that work in the entertainment industry being above other people. I just don't think like that. And I'm a huge Ridely Scott fan. I just don't see how asking this question would upset him. Because any good filmmaker can make a movie work. Just my two cents.

I'll tell the mods to retract my report. It just seemed like you were singling me out.

No, not singling you out at all. Heck, for all I know my question was stupid!

But Protozoid articulated it better than I ever could. You'll only get a small block of time to ask maybe three questions, and then it's off to the next journalist. The entertainment industry also isn't a monolith. Ridley and Colin Strause both work in the entertainment industry, but are vastly different. We nor Ridley may think he's above everyone, but he is. Not on a basic human level, but in the field he's known for and the interview pertains to: film. He's got maybe five or six people above him.

I'll remove Your Quote from my signature though.

I, personally, wouldn't go into an interview with a director and ask about another film, especially one not made by themselves. It insinuates that you are more curious about that film than the one you're there to talk about. Even if it's 1 question out of 20 it will stand out.


Necronomicon II

^ Exactly, there's more than plenty you could ask about his current projects.

Ridley's I Am Legend is discussed at length in David Hughes' The Greatest Sci-Fi Movies Never Made, a solid book which is likely out of date on some projects that have since come to fruition in one way or another. He had a gorgeous vision in mind but it didn't happen.

I think the script he was working from has long since leaked, but I've never read it all the way through. I've had the Arnold/Paul Verhoeven Crusade script sitting here forever too.

Ah, cool. I'll have to search for that book. Thanks for letting me know about it. I also have that Crusade script. Doesn't Arnold own the rights to that script?

I imagine most of the same info from the book is now easily accessible online (as are large sections of the actual book via Google Books, which may solve your problem). IIRC Ridley worked on IAL with John Logan and Mark Protosevich. I wish it'd happened. I think it might've saved Arnold's career, and I think the final film was just awful.

No idea on who owns Crusade.

Arnold does, Hughes talks about it in "Tales from Development Hell" that he took the rights to the movie in exchange for a reduction in what he was owe from it never getting put into production.  He was looking to have it made when he became Governor.

I love both of those books and wish Hughes would write more.

I will not be asking any questions relating to AvP or not relating to Alien. I will be asking about Blomkamp's film though. He is/was a producer on it and involved in it, having commented on it in the past. I'll likely squeeze it into a catch-all question about later films including Awakening.

I'd love to ask about the Alien guide we've been reading about on here.  How far it extends, if it goes into idea for awakening and after.  If it includes bloomkamps ideas for alien v.  Asking about the guide might be a decent catch-all question about both Awakenings and Alien V.

Or not.

I knew it!  >:(

:laugh:

Seriously though, that sounds like a good question to ask and I'm curious what he'll say.

Let's all hope it doesn't break etiquette and ruin the big night, leading to Ridley never speaking to the Corporal ever again and hating him forever upon which AvPG will slowly fade into the darkness to be no more. This could be the beginning of the end...

I will be very curious to know the budget of the film. But I don't know if it's a good idea to talk about money haha

I know I posted a couple already but I'll throw this one into the hat as well. For Ridley:

As you developed the script for Prometheus with Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof, the story went through many different permutations as it transformed from a direct Alien prequel into more of its own entity. Were there iterations as numerous in shaping the script for Covenant, or was it more of a straight line?
