In a bizarrely random new development, it appears a new Alien vs. Predator movie may be in the works at Disney / 20th Century Studios. According to a fresh report by Giant Freaking Robot, they claim trusted insider sources have confirmed to them that a new AvP film is currently being develop for the big screen:
Their sources do not clarify whether or not this new film will be a direct sequel to the established Alien vs. Predator films or a completely new venture.
It is worth noting though, that the new Predator film (Skull) by Dan Trachtenberg takes place in a timeline which renders both Alien vs. Predator movies uncanon. So, if this rumor proves to be true, we suspect the next AvP movie will be a brand new title separate of the established lore.
Furthermore, we know the Alien TV series for FX is in the pipeline at Hulu, but we still have no confirmation on whether or not a new Alien movie will be hitting the silver screen as well anytime soon.
We encourage readers to take this news with a hefty grain of salt until additional information can be gathered from other reputable sources. As much as a reboot of AvP would make sense for Disney - it being a rather profitable endeavor even if it isn't what fans want - with their upcoming Predator movie and Alien TV show, it seems rather premature to begin work on another Alien vs. Predator film without first seeing how audiences react to the new individual property titles once they're released in their own.
Time will tell. But in the meantime what do you think of this rumor? Sound off in the comments below!
