Anne Hathaway and James Franco want parts in the Alien prequel?

10.19.2010

With the ball rolling on the ALIEN prequel, quite a few people in Hollywood are wanting jump on board.

Last news we got on this project involved Fox swooning over Damon Lindelof's script and Natalie Portman as a possible star.

Bloody Disgusting is now adding two other actors into the mix, James Franco and Anne Hathaway. They say that both Franco and Hathaway are just really interested right now. The site also notes to expect some official announcements to come in the next few weeks.

Noomi Rapace and Gemma Arterton were two names that were also kicked around.

So could you see Hathaway and Franco battling it out against the Queen and her facehuggers? I really don't think it would be too bad. Both of them are great, even if Hathaway often gets stuck in films like BRIDE WARS. Occasionally, she does pick up a good part like her role as Kym in RACHEL GETTING MARRIED. Franco gets all sorts of projects. None of them I can really frown upon except for Spidey 3. Soon we will be seeing him in 127 HOURS then RISE OF THE APES.

Both aren't right for this.

What happened to having a strong lead surrounded by fresh new faces? Alien deserves an "unexplored" or "unknown" vibe and these two just don't bring that new interesting substance I think we all want. These 2 are great but not for this.

If James Franco wants a role in your movie, I say give it to him. Heīs awesome.. I can do without Hathaway though..

Please give them the roles!!... I would really like to see Anne Hathaway expand her cinema scope by taking on a role in a sci-fi/horror. And adding Franco would be even more awesome! A gritty film and Franco would easily go together.

What schwarzgeršt said. I like Franco AND Hathaway, but unless the Aliens are invading my local mall, I think they need to cast people a bit more on the rugged side.

I Dig It

I think Franco is underrated, and Hathaway is wicked hot, so I'm down. I like the fact that the cast is shaping up (possibly) to have some actual talent. Having Ridley back ain't so shabby either.

These two people don't even look like they exist in the same universe as Yaphet Kotto and Harry Dean Stanton.

Remember the studio wants a PG13 Alien sequel

Even with Scott behind the camera I fear a disaster, Fox has not learned a thing since Fincher's attempt at the franchise

Maybe.

For me, 'Predators' did not come close to ruling as much as the original. This movie is a big maybe, but I dig most of Lost and it could be cool, especially with these people involved. Disregarding all possibilities of sucking, who on earth gives a SHIT about the origins of the friggin space jockey????????????

The reputation of the Predator franchise is now restored thanks to Rodriguez, so it's time for the aliens to give it their best shot too.

And hopefully they will never see each other in a film together again.

I think it is a good sign that stars actually want to be in this. I will be looking forward to this one.

I think those two in this film could seriously help it, but I still think this is an unnecessary film.

Extra tidbit- "Rachel Getting Married" is excellent, if a little too long.

I don't really see either of them fighting aliens.

I also really liked Rachel Getting Married and I think Hathaway should have won the Oscar for it.

Rachel Getting Married is the only Anne Hathaway movie I've ever seen - she was clothed and everything

I think it would be awesome if both of them signed onto this. I think Franco would be kick ass in a Alien movie.

Rachel Getting Married was really good. Hathaway definitely showed how much she'd grown since The Princess Diaries, haha. i'd be down for both of them in the prequel. i'm just curious about the plot of the movie.
