An eagle-eyed Redditor named THE-WARD3VIL has posted a screenshot of an open magazine with what looks to be James Cameron’s likeness. The caption reads “just started playing alien isolation, already found james cameron [sic]” and while there’s not been official confirmation, that’s pretty much exactly what it looks like.
If it is indeed Cameron, it would be a strange move given the fact that Alien: Isolation is a departure from Cameron’s action-oriented film style within the Alien franchise, but it wouldn’t be out of place for a cool Easter egg like this one to crop up.
What do you think? Random bearded guy or nod to Cameron himself?
