RIDLEY TALKS MORE ALIENS
With Alien: The Director's Cut opening at the end of the month, Ridley Scott is talking about the re-release and also the possibility of him directing a fifth film.
The Star-Ledger says that Scott is in talks with 20th Century Fox and that he would take a less-is-more approach and return the franchise to its horror genre roots.
'I'd like to go back to do a tight movie, one-on-one,' said Scott. 'I think that's always scarier. When you get too many aliens, it diminishes the terror. It becomes an action movie, whereas ours was about flat-out terror.'
The trade reports that he's also talking to James Cameron about the project.
Meanwhile, DVD Rama has up an interview with Scott written in French and here's a rough translation.
Fox and Sigourney Weaver contacted me, they wish to conclude the series by that which began it. But there is nothing advanced, we are not even really at the stage of the serious discussions. I do not know really what I could do... unless precisely turning over to the questions put in the first episode. From where does the vessel crushed on the planet comes from with this mysterious extraterrestrial inside? One could wonder whether they're used as weapons of massive destruction, which could threaten the Earth.
