Early reports suggested it would take place in a “Midwestern town,” but perhaps Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem won’t be such an Earth-bound affair after all.
Of all the complaints pre-emptively lodged against the Alien vs. Predator sequel, perhaps the most frequently voiced has been its rumored location. For a large number of fans, making an AvP sequel was unnecessary in the first place — but if the studio really felt like it had to happen, the filmmakers could at least stage the latest round in space (where no one can hear you scream).
Well, what do you know? Maybe they did just that.
According to a report posted yesterday at Shock Till You Drop, “an anonymous scooper” has confirmed that Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem “will give fans a long-awaited look at the home world of the Predator species.” As the article notes, Requiem co-director Greg Strause recently told Fangoria that “a new world” might “perhaps” be a part of the sequel, so maybe Mr. Anonymous Scooper is onto something here.
