ADI's Woodruff Muses On Future of AvP Universe
April 4, 2008
Amalgamated Dynamics, Inc.'s Tom Woodruff sat down with ShockTillYouDrop.com this afternoon to look
back on his career and the work he has contributed to Fox's Alien and Predator franchises. Having played a big
part in the Alien series - both in makeup and out of it - and now the AvP universe, where would he love to see
the series go next?
"My hopes, as a creature designer and as a fan, would be ideally to continue on whatever storyline
it is the Alien versus Predator takes us in because there's certainly a wide open book at this point," Woodruff
says. "But in addition to that, I'd still like to explore the future world of Alien 5, what's the next step of that
story? It's such an unresolved story and there are so many opportunities for characters and great storytelling. As well as
Predator, both of those are open-ended stories and AvP has taken the center line combining those stories, but
I think there's plenty of room for three very distinct story takes on those characters."
Keep an eye on Shock for
a full report from Amalgamated Dynamics and our interview with Woodruff!

Not much movie news to report, but those of you planning to buy the definitive
editions may want to wait a little longer to see what "The Alien and Predator Ultimate Collector's Edition" has to offer,
only ordering info at the moment. From what I can see the definitive editions mainly claim to offer the best sound and
picture quality yet, while the only extras compared to the past 2-disc sets appear to be some TV spots and trailers.

AVP, Predator and Alien movies.

Good news on AVP2 creature production:
Quote of Hicks on the Alien fan forums:
Predator Costumes to Get Complete Redesign!
Mon Aug 14, 2006
It would seem the word
on the street in Hollywood has it that the Predator costumes for the upcoming Alien vs. Predator 2 will not only be brand-spanking
new, not reused costumes from Anderson's original, but cast from brand-spanking new molds!
Better yet, these molds will
be based on the Predators from the original two movies. This means the design of the Predators will be a complete redo, going
back to the basics of the Predator design, and built from the ground up. It seems the production team is very concerned with
the quality of the costumes going forward into the sequel, and it would also appear Fox is sparing no expense, or effort,
to get them done right. This is welcome news to the ears of any Predator fan.
