    Excellent news, if true. Aliens was my second favorite to Alien. If Ridley does not do 5, than Cameron would be an excellent replacement.
    My only hope is that Weaver stays out of it, but that is not likely to happen.

    This is great news, even though I dont think the series really as another installment in it. But if Cameron or Scott do it, itll be good.

    I would be in heaven if it was true but I can't beleave it.

    Cameron can do whatever he wants after Titanic. He's into Mars, IMAX 3D, Anime and whatever. And he already made the perfect scifi-actioner. Aliens can't be topped and Cameron must know this. This is just another false rumour.

    Nothing's wrong with Weaver, but the films are supposed to be about the Aliens. There are so many interesting stories they can still tell, but as the series progresses the films fall apart trying to keep Ripley as the main character.

    Her popularity is probably considered a 'sure thing' in the eyes of the producers, so they'd rather tell increasingly worse stories with her involved than get creative and tell new stories with risky new characters.

    Nothing is wrong with her, but like Sam said, the movies are about Aliens and too much of the later films focused on her, instead of the Aliens.

    I can see the scene toward the ending now...

    ...Ripley wakes up from a deep sleep like she did in his previous effort. She walks, nightgown flowing into the wind and realizes that she is standing on the bow of a ship. Suddenly a Queen comes up from behind her and wraps it's scaling arms around her waist. They both stand proudly in the wake of the wind and proclaim they are the Queens of the world....

    THEN...reliving the horrid memories of her past, she cast the Queen into the depths of the ocean, never again to resurface, keeping the Company from it's valuable prey...

    They should do what Halloween did, ignore 3 and Reserection and make the new Alien a direct sequel! (3 and ress sucked!)That would be sweet, then she could still be alive, and they could take it in another direction! Either that, or a prequel!
