I’ve obviously got my priorities right. I’ve been doing the round of bridal stores why my fellow webmasters have just returned from Prague where they’ve been on the set of “Aliens vs. Predator” [That’s ok, I get to go to the set of “Baby Geniuses 2: Superbabies” next month – now who’s jealous?]. IGN FilmForce had a bit of a chat with Director Paul Anderson whilst there. “We’ve been very careful about that. It’s set present day and on earth, so it’s like 150 years before Sigourney Weaver’s out in space. It really makes sense. When you see this movie and then those movies, well I understand why she was completely ignorant of the existence of Aliens, but the Weyland-Yutani people did have an awareness of them.”
Lance Henriksen is the only “Aliens” cast member returning. "The role was written for him. I wanted some casting continuity with the Alien franchise even though it is set 100 years after our movie. The only person that could be was Lance. He, of course, was an android in the other movies. That was the idea behind that. I thought it was kind of a neat idea … I wanted to use the Weyland-Yutani Corporation in some respect. So the idea is that Charles Bishop Weyland is like Bill Gates, but his area of expertise is robotics. He’s made his made his money in high tech and he’s like the father of modern robotics. So that when the Bishop android is created in 150 years time, it’s created with the face of the creator. It’s kind of like Microsoft building an android in 100 years time that has the face of Bill Gates. The idea with Weyland is that his character is a man who is dying and like a lot of rich men who are facing the end, they realize that money and power aren’t enough. What they want to do is leave something behind. So it’s kind of like his longing for immortality that precipitates a lot of the events in this film, but also explains why his corporation would build something with his face."
