Aliens franchise

Could the aliens franchise ever be a summer or winter tent pole piece for fox? especially after the luke warm AvP films, countless poor games and that mess that was Prometheus and the dreadful Alien Resurrection.

If so what would you like to see in it?

Just a curious fan after playing the disastrous Aliens Colonial Marines game.

I would certainly like to see more Alien films. I like the whole mythology. I think there's a lot more places they could go with it and I immensely enjoyed Prometheus.

But they won't. Somehow the Alien franchise ended up in The Ripley Show. Most fanboys will say it, Sigourney loves to say it: it's all about Ripley. And it shouldn't. It's astonishing that a movie about aliens is confined to one woman or one motive: bio weapons. Resurrection was terrible as part of a larger story. It's 200 years later than Alien3 and they still need Ripley and they still want to use the Xenomorphs as weapons. Really? They still try to do that after 200 years? Had they a choice between shit that just doesn't work: turning lead into gold and taming xenomorphs? It's a universe with massive space stations, androids and the ability to clone people and they still want to use animals in warfare? Ugh.

I still don't think it's hard to make a badass AVP film. I know the two films have turned everyone off to the idea, but get a fucking writer with some idea's and balls and you could have a kickass ride.

If someone smart would ever start a new Aliens movie exactly where #2 ends...... keeps the evil government angle...... have the spaceship crash on another planet and then bring the new larger alien race to earth...... I will write it for free if they make it and I get to do an interview with Mr Jo Blo himself

hmmm, with the whole reboot angle everywhere at the moment, how would people feel about a reboot of the Alien franchise? Is it complete sacrilege?
