20th Century Fox / ALIEN franchise
 
Anyone know if there is a particular exec at the company who oversees the franchise? Can I get a name?

Thanks much!

Actually, it's Jason Young.... (Amazing what a little research will yield.)

Edited to add: Okay, there's ALSO a Jason Young in addition to Alex.

Are they even looking at the franchise as "Alien" or rather the collective "Aliens/Predator" ?

Good question. Word has it they're proceeding with a AvP sequel, but there have always been rumblings surrounding resurrecting (no pun intended) the ALIEN franchise.

You're in luck:

Last I heard they really wanted to do the film, and had a big pile of money sitting on a desk, but they wanted to find some newbie writer to put in charge of the project.



*rolls eyes*

Wow, that's so great that you posted, Joe! I was just thinking that what this thread needed was a sarcastic response by an @sshole like you....

You're right, it was a little harsh. Sorry.



But I do think the underlying message is something that bears saying. Even attempting to approach a studio exec who oversees a franchise property is a complete dead-end. It just doesn't work like that, as I'm sure you already know.

And I was harsh in return. Sorry, too....

Yes, Joe, I'm well aware of the improbability factor surrounding this situation. That said, nothing ventured, nothing gained.
