Walt Disney Co.’s $71 billion purchase of 21st Century Fox Inc.’s entertainment assets is expected to win Brazilian approval now that the companies have agreed to sell the Fox Sports channel and program rights in the country, according to a person close to the situation.

The regulatory agency Cade concluded Disney’s ownership of ESPN and Fox Sports would leave just one other competitor and give the company too much market power. The parties agreed to the sale to get the greenlight, said the person, who asked not to be identified because discussions aren’t public. The agency is expected to rule on Wednesday.

Neill Blomkamp's Original idea? Yes.

Sigourney Weaver's Ellen Ripley? No.

Still hoping Disney brings on Cameron and Blomkamp to reboot Alien V.

Ya, that would be totally awesome with Sigourney Weaver's Ripley.  And I don't mean Ripley 8...

Let's see what happens with terminator 6 first.

Blomkamp's not directing Terminator 6.

Cameron is involved. I want to see just how much havoc he's capable of causing when returning to a beloved franchise.

I think he means if Terminator 6 is successful. Hollywood looks for trends and if bringing Linda Hamilton & Jamie Lee Curtis back meant success for Terminator & Halloween respectively, they'll likely want to proceed with Sigourney and Alien.

Oh my.



If they go with bringing back the old ones they should try with Dutch before Ripley.

Despite being all about self determination, ironically I believe Terminator will decide the fate of Alien.

Just like how The Terminator got James Cameron the Aliens gig, history repeats.

Very well possible.

I honestly can't imagine Terminator getting back on track, even with Cameron. Just a feeling, no particular reason behind it.
