Pete over at AlienExperience passed along some news about the ALIEN VS. PREDATOR sequel to Joblo that should afford fans holding their breath for some good news to come out of the franchise a chance to exhale a little. ALIEN VS. PREDATOR: SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST (as it is now officially being called) will not be based on Shane Salerno's unpopular script taking place in Texas.
The details of the shooting script are unknown at this point but it will still be a script from Salerno, just a different one.

AVP2, from directors Colin and Greg Strause and newly aquired cinematographer Daniel Pearl is set for an August 10th, 2007 release.
