Greg Strause said about the sequel, "The studio knew that, although the last movie made a lot of money, it didn't really resonate solidly with the fans. To get the same people back into the theater a second time, it was gonna be a bit of an uphill battle."

Added his brother Colin, "We really have to prove to the fans that this movie's gonna be very different from the last one. We wanted to [go R-rated] with it. I mean, we chest-burst a little kid!"

Greg talks about a merging of the two monsters, "The Predalien wreaks havoc and causes a different Predator ship - it's actually a Predator scout ship in this case - to crash on Earth. You see a bunch of Predators get whacked at the beginning." His brother continued, saying, "The Predalien wants to hunt and reproduce. She's got a big queen head. The main concept is that a Predalien should still be primarily Alien [with] very strong Alien features but with Predator mandibles and Predator dreadlocks. It walks a little more upright than a normal Alien does, but it also has the tail. It uses that tail quite a bit, and it's got a much bigger tail than a normal Alien."

About a sequel, Greg stated, "I'd like to do another one but I'd like to do it in space. The next one either has to be more of the bridge after this and before "Alien", or you could do something after "Aliens", We have a pretty finite ending to this, but we have a cliffhanger per se; it's a setup."

Aliens vs. Predator - Requiem opens Christmas Day, 2007.
