CAMERON, SCOTT & ALIENS SEQUEL?
The Associated Press interviewed James Cameron about his new 3-D IMAX film Ghosts of the Abyss. Of course conversation drifted to his upcoming projects:
Minus Cameron as writer and director, Schwarzenegger stars in the upcoming Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. The movie was directed by Jonathan Mostow, assuming the role of upstart director taking over someone else's franchise, which Cameron did when he directed 1986's Aliens.
Alien director Ridley Scott initially was not amused, Cameron said. The two subsequently have talked about doing an Alien film together, with Cameron writing and producing and Scott directing, Cameron said.
David Fincher's Alien 3 - which killed off characters Cameron created, essentially negating the outcome of Aliens - has braced Cameron for anything that Terminator 3 might deliver.
'I'm like so over that by now. You can't hold on to that stuff,' Cameron said. 'There's nothing they can do to me on Terminator 3 that's going to be as outrageous as that.'
