ALIEN & PREDATOR LIVE ON!

MovieHole reports:

You just can't kill a good franchise. Heck, you can't even kill a bad franchise.

Talking to an insider at FOX in Century City a couple of days back , I heard that there's high hopes for everything 'Alien' and 'Predator' - what with the pleasing B.O figures for 'Aliens vs.Predator' and all. Despite not even being previewed for critics (probably just as well, I caught it yesterday and thought it sucked more than Pammy Anderson)the film has made quite a packet over the past couple of weeks, leaving FOX with a fat smile on their face and everyone who has got an idea for a sequel, spin-off or stand-alone movie very, very optimistic, if not giddy with possibility.

The plan is - new stand-alone 'Predator' movies, new stand-alone 'Alien' movies. No sequel to 'AvP' at the moment. If anything, 'AvP' was a way of a re-introducing these characters so that there could be new stand-alone films in their respective series. Never was it a plan to do a series of 'AvP' movies.

One 'Predator 3' pitch that's been doing the rounds sounds stellar. It's set in snowy New York, and re-introduces Arnold Schwarzenegger's character, Dutch. You'd think the possibility of this one happening hinders on whether Schwarzenegger returns to the Governors chair but not necessarily, word is they think they could easily have someone else play the character from here on in. They picture 'Dutch' as being this big 'Riddick/Snake Plissken' esque character that will inevitably be more of a drawcard than the monster itself.

The script's apparently hotter than the Californian Sun. Best of all, for the studio, it leaves it open for a 'Predator 4' - which is rumoured to feature a female rogue.

As for 'Alien', the latest is that it'll be a Ridley Scott - Sigourney Weaver re-team. Talk is underway, but it's still early days. Wouldn't be surprised if it's hurried though.

Talking of sturdy storylines, the idea for a new 'Dirty Harry' that I heard today - over at Warner - is just brilliant. I won't say too much, but let's just say it flips back to the original film, and it's Clint Eastwood playing 'old' Harry, in a sort of 'Dark Knight Returns' vein. Hoping that baby happens.

Lastly, the script for a 'Jurassic Park 4' is apparently near finished. Speaking at a Q & A session, sfx master Stan Winston revealed that it's nearly time to go on the fourth chapter. No word yet on whether David Boreanaz is actually attached or not though, as rumoured. Thanks to DansJp3page and Coming Soon for that titbit.
