Oh come on we all know an "ALIENS-esque" type film, set in the future, with military hardware is in the works.
I haven't seen this much pre-production hype since the proposed, and maligned, "ALIEN remake" proposed to be produced by Ridley Scott and Directed by his ex-son-in-law Carl Rinsch (47 Ronin).
The idea, which would expand the original ALIEN mythology and unused "dissecting the derelict" a retrospective blog post talking about Ridley Scott's ambition to tell a larger story back-story to the Space Jockey and a, then, seperate race of Engineers.http://alienexplorations.blogspot.co.uk/2010/09/dissecting-derelict-scene-on-acheron.html
Of course that movie became Prometheus (2012) and the results were variable (but a relative hit at Box Office).
Its obvious from the off-set that retconning those lucrative ALIEN boxsets (which get almost annual updates) is a daft idea. Make a stand-alone sequel, get a new story, new actors and some originality in production design. Do we really need Vietnam imagery of the 1986 dropship in 2018 onwards?
Fan-wanks do not make great films.
