I am highly frustrated with PAUL W S ANDERSON as he just keeps dropping the ball with his movies and that includes very serious incidents of a stunt man death and lack of on-set safety which I'll get to.
He is a mishmash of channelling Ridley Scott, James Cameron, George Miller......along with Michael Bay. Ideal for Aliens Vs Predator 3 if you ask me. In a way that is is why I like him so much and I think Paul WS Anderson has the potential to be a competent Director from a technical and entertaining standpoint, but his pacing and quality is so inconsistent and uneven within his movies.
His last attempt at a near $100 Million budget was "POMPEII" (2014) which only grossed $117 Million worldwide. Thematically it was a natural disaster, romance, action historical (inaccurate) theme mashup of Ridley Scott's "Gladiator" meets James Cameron "Titanic" keeping in-line with channeling his influences. You might recall he was previously put off spending more than $100 Million due to his disasterous "SOLIDER" movie in 1999 which went straight to video on a $60 Million budget (In 1999 no less) and only got back $16 Million.
Then there was the double whammy of a tragic stunman crushed to death by a humvee in December 2015 while filming on Resident Evil- The Final Chapter, followed by a maiming of a stuntwoman crippled by a camera rig. All done on Paul W S Anderson's watch.https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3372951/Crew-member-Resident-Evil-crushed-death-Hummer-falls-days-stuntwoman-reveals-arm-amputated-following-accident-set.html
You have to remember Paul W S Anderson had Walter Hill and David Giller producing AVP (2004) and with practical effects from Tom Woodruff Jnr and minitures from those worked on ALIENS, yes AVP was still a creaky, uneven mess.
But you also have to look at the making of ALIEN-3 to see that while Paul W S Anderson is not perfect, won't ever be perfect he gets movies made on budget and on time and gets box office results* (*at least with Resident Evil).
He should have a fan forum where people pick out the best and worst parts of his movies (CGI shots, where the action worked, where it did not work, set-design) and go ahead and get greenlit for AVP3 providing it is rated R, set in the future, has written characters and a decent concept.
I`d give him a chance to make AvP3. Set it in the future, star it with Alien Queen being extracted from depths of southern Atlantic Ocean and take it off world into EH like setting.
Hahha. I actually had this same idea, where the Queen freed herself but got encased in ice preserving her. Some near future (but not quite far into future) Weyland explorers knowingly defrost her while chained up in some Atmosphere Processor in Antarctica (maybe to reverse Global warming and to hide her prescence).
All hell breaks loose and we have an AVP3 set in Antarctica or as you say have her extradited to space or an off-world ice moon.
