Why didn’t it happen?


Imagine this : A spectacular fifth “Alien” movie that would re-team director James Cameron with Sigourney Weaver.

Then, imagine this : Twentieth Century Fox decide to shelve that one, and instead do an “Alien Vs.Predator” movie.

James Cameron told Aint it Cool that he was working on an “Alien 5” at the time the studio commissioned the “AVP” movie.

“I started working on a story, I was working with another writer and Fox came back to me and said, “We’ve got this really good script for Alien Vs.Predator and I got pretty upset. I said, “You do that you’re going to kill the validity of the franchise in my mind.” Because to me, that was Frankenstein Meets Werewolf. It was Universal just taking their assets and starting to play them off against each other”, he says, adding “So, I stopped work”.

There is one project that Cameron was linked to years ago that he’s still very much involved in, “Coffin”, a collaboration with “Hellboy” director Guillermo del Toro.

“Coffin is definitely not dead and Guillermo says he still wants to make it. He’s just finishing up his Spanish film right now”.
