We’ve got to get it right.” Silver said that “Birds of Prey” creator Laeta Kalogridis is working on a new script. “She wrote a script for me years ago about Joan of Arc that was really very smart,” Silver said.

ALIENS VS. PREDATOR
Superherohype also has a a spy report on the trailer for the upcoming sci fi thriller. The spy, called “Mark” said: “I attended a preview of ‘Alien: The Director’s Cut’ last night and attached was a teaser for ‘Alien vs. Predator.’ From what I remember there were a lot of close-up shots and the Predator ‘clicking’ sound.

In any case, Ain’t It Cool News allegedly has a copy of the script, and they’re not happy with what they read.
