    My best friend said that James Cameron was planning on another directors cut of Aliens and is going to restore 10 more minutes onto his additional 17 from the early 90s. Is this true or is he talking crap?

    gotta be. What are his sources? the only thing missing that I am aware of is Burkes impregnation/pleading scene.

    I would say utter crap.

    I think the confusion is in the title "Directors Cut"...I know with the T2 SE Cameron does not refer to it as a directors cut, simply an alternate version of the film. He believes in giving people a choice...taking notes Lucas?
    As far as Aliens, I do believe this philosophy applies too. He is also quoted as saying he was satisfied with the theatrical cut of The Abyss.
    I believe Cameron has gotten final cut of all of his movies.
    As far as another cut of Aliens, I think it's just a rumor.

    Although a new SE of Aliens would be nice! The extras on the current version are a bit skimpy for such a classic.
