Not only has franchise great Sir Ridley Scott seen and loved Fede Alvarez's Alien: Romulus already, but Aliens director James Cameron has also seen the film and has given it his own stamp of approval! It's fitting that both Scott and Cameron got to see the picture beforehand, since Romulus takes place between both Scott and Cameron's Alien movies and borrows elements from each of them. Speaking recently to THR, Alvarez explained what it was like to meet Ridley and Cameron respectively and what it was like for them both to see his version of Alien. Unsurprisingly, James Cameron and Ridley Scott had polarizing views and opinions of the property, but Fede's story seems to have done a great job of appeasing them both!

THR: It’s pretty intimidating to step into a Ridley Scott franchise. Denis Villeneuve recently told me how difficult it was for him on Blade Runner 2049. But apparently, you’ve already passed the Ridley test. He really spent an entire hour telling you how much he loved the movie?

Fede Alvarez: He did! As intimidating as it is, that’s the best part of being able to work on something like this. For all of us and whatever it is that we do, the dream is to sit down with the masters of our craft and have a conversation about what we do and learn how to do it better. And the process of making this film definitely gave me that experience with Ridley. At the story level, we first told him what I was planning to do, and then when he read it, I discussed the script with him. And later, when he watched the movie, I discussed my cut with him. So I consider each one of those moments and creative conversations with Ridley to be a highlight of my career and my life.

James Cameron is also someone I’ve met through the years, and when he learned that I was doing it, we started chatting about it. So I also had that conversation with him at the script level. He’s now seen the movie and loved it. It’s also fascinating because [Cameron and Scott’s] notes and comments are completely different. (Laughs.) They wouldn’t repeat a note. Whatever Ridley said, Cameron said something different. They were all super smart comments, notes and thoughts on the film and the filmmaking, et cetera, but both of them have completely different approaches. So the fantastic part of being able to make this film is to have the chance to work with them.
