SDCC16: ‘Aliens’ 30th Panel with James Cameron, Gale Anne Hurd, Sigourney Weaver and Cast

Jul 23, 2016


20th Century Fox’s Aliens panel is up next and stay tuned for any updates concerning Alien: Covenant or Alien 5.

Attendees include director James Cameron, producer Gale Anne Hurd, Sigourney Weaver, Bill Paxton, Lance Henriksen, Paul Reiser, Michael Biehn, and Carrie Henn.

The terror continues in James Cameron’s ALIENS as Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) returns to Earth after drifting through space in hypersleep for 57 years. Although her story about the Alien encounter is met with skepticism, she agrees to accompany a team of high-tech marines back to LV-426…and this time it’s war!

Sigourney Weaver joins the rest of the panel.


James Cameron mentions that he could have seen Michael Biehn’s Hicks going somewhere if Alien 3 didn’t kill him off. 

He’s not wrong, originally producers want Hicks to replace Ripley as the lead in the third film, when he turned them down they decided to kill-off his character.
