    First details on Alien 5 and Alien 6

    The Zap2it Web site reported preliminary details of the fifth and sixth films in the popular Aliens franchise, which will feature Sigourney Weaver's character, Ripley, defending the Earth from colonization by the evil aliens. According to the site, Weaver has said that she would be interested in reprising her role for the sequels.

    The site revealed that the fifth film will find the Earth "under attack from alien warrior drop ships," while the sixth will force Ripley to "turn to the dark side in order to save civilization." No directors or cast have been attached to the as-yet-untitled sequels.

    Westworld remake

    Writers Michael Ferris and John Brancato (Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines) will pen Warner Brothers' proposed remake of Westworld, to be produced by Jerry Weintraub and T3 star Arnold Schwarzenegger, Variety reported. The writers have already drafted a script for Catwoman, a Pitof-directed film at Warner to star Halle Berry, the trade paper reported.

    Warner and Weintraub are eyeing Westworld as the next star vehicle for Schwarzenegger, who will not be playing Yul Brynner's role of the robotic gunfighter, but will instead play one of the virtual resort's guests. The original 1973 SF movie was based on Michael Crichton's script.

    Indy IV Script Done

    Harrison Ford told SCI FI Wire that Frank Darabont has completed his script for a proposed fourth Indiana Jones movie. "Steven [Spielberg]'s quite happy with it," Ford said in an interview. "I'm expecting to see it in a couple of weeks."

    Ford added that he worked closely with director Spielberg, Darabont and executive producer George Lucas on the story. "The way the process works is that George and Frank work together, then Steven gets the script, then I get the script, and we all work together. We all met together and talked about it before they started writing."

    Ford said that he remains eager to reprise his most famous role because of fans' demands for a fourth installment in the franchise. "It pleases me to play a character that audiences want to see," he said. "I know that it's eagerly anticipated, and I want us to do a good job, make a film at least as good as the ones we've made before." The fourth as-yet-untitled Indy movie is slated to begin filming in the summer of 2004, with an eye to a July 2005 release.

    Here's a bizzare movie - [b]Fairytale[b] under development

    Producer John Wells has teamed with independent writer-producer Nick Davis and screenwriter J.J. Simone to develop a family action comedy about three grumpy fairytale femmes, Variety reported.

    The untitled live-action script will feature Snow White, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty transplanted by a fairy godmother from Happily Ever After Land to modern-day New York in order to grow up. While coming to grips with metropolitan life, they unlock their inner action-heroines and set about saving the universe from evil, the trade paper said.

    Tidbits and Rumors

    Josh Hartnett told Zap2it that he turned down the title role in the upcoming Superman movie four times despite an impassioned appeal from the film's former director, Brett Ratner. "I just didn't want to play Superman, and I've turned down all of the other superhero movies too," Hartnett said.
    -------------------
    The soundtrack for the Hulk movie will be released on June 17, three days before the movie hits theaters. The CD will feature Danny Elfman's score and the song "Set Me Free," performed by Scott Weiland, Slash, Duff McKagan, Matt Sorum and Dave Kushner.

    WOW... finally the Aliens movie I've always been waiting for!!

    unfortunate that ripley died in alien 3, since i guess that means they'll be "resurrecting" her robot character.

    interesting that slash and duff of GNR are reuniting for a hulk track (and matt sorum, but he doesn't really count). it would've been cool if the whole original GNR wrote a song together again.

    The biggest mistake Aliens ever made was killing of Micheal Beihns Character at the start of Aliens 3 (Which sucked). he was the best part and they just killed him off without a decent reason in number 3
