    AVPR: Aliens vs Predator - Requiem [2007]
  • Bill Paxton was approached to play the diner chef so he could appear in the second [Predator], [Alien] and [AvP] film in each series. However, scheduling conflicts prevented him from making an appearance.
  • The Predator was nicknamed "Wolf" by the filmmakers, after the character Winston Wolfe in Pulp Fiction. His role in the film, like Wolfe's, is described as that of a "cleaner" - one who covers up assassinations, accidents, and other messy situations. The Predalien was nicknamed "Chet" on set and in the script. This was to avoid early spoilers about the nature of the creature (i.e. it being a hybrid between the Alien and Predator). The name "Chet" was a reference to the obnoxious brother from the movie Weird Science (who was played by Bill Paxton)
