There are SPOILERS inside the link in this article but the genre fans who hated the original ALIENS VS PREDATOR will enjoy this bit of news. The directors behind the sequel, ALIENS VS PREDATOR: REQUIEM, have spoken to MTV about quite a few details with the upcoming installment. In the course of this interview, Colin and Greg Strause, even snuck in a few jabs at Anderson's expense and talked about facing an uphill battle with all the negativity regarding the first film.
"The studio knew that, although the last movie made a lot of money, it didn't really resonate solidly with the fans," admitted Greg Strause, one-half of the filmmaking duo billed as the Brothers Strause. "To get the same people back into the theater a second time, it was gonna be a bit of an uphill battle."
"We really have to prove to the fans," added his brother Colin, "that this movie's gonna be very different from the last one."
"We wanted to [go R-rated] with it," added Colin, who not only wears the same sunglasses as his 1-year-older brother, but even orders his burger the same way. "I mean, we chest-burst a little kid!"
"Yeah, he dies," Greg confirmed of the ill-fated child. "Onscreen, and very painfully. It's pretty f---ed up, but breaking some of the rules is a good thing here."
Given the go-ahead to make their hard-R flick, the Brothers Strause are steering clear of the PG-13 traps that rendered their predecessor so despised that an "AVP" podcast recently declared, "The only thing [director] Paul [W.S.] Anderson did correctly was bring people closer together in their community hatred of him."
"I don't think anyone wanted us to talk to him," Colin laughed, confirming that they haven't met with Anderson. "This movie works even if you didn't see [Anderson's]."
