. Writer James Muller claimed that the studio used his script THE LOST CONTINENT as the basis for ALIEN VS. PREDATOR. The judge ruled that the two scripts told "very different stories" and that any dialogue similarities were not close enough.
In AVP, an archaeologist team travels to Antarctica and finds themselves stuck between the aliens from ALIEN and PREDATOR. CONTINENT followed a government-run archaeologist expedition to Antarctica where a secret structure is found under the ice and the Freemasons are trying to retrieve a crystal from Atlantis. Instead of aliens there are animated stone gargoyles.
