Haven't read the 3rd one. I'm not even sure I knew of it. I don't think I'm missing much by the sound of it.
Well, yeah. Either way, Dick saw early footage of the movie but unfortunately he never saw it get released due to his death. Sadly.
Yes. He didn't like 'ALIEN'. Which is ironic considering O'Bannon went on to write the treatment of Dick's 'We can Remember it for you Wholesale' released as 'Total Recall'.
I wonder what Dick would have thought of that movie? He wasn't interested in depicting his characters as larger than life heroes. They tended to be 'the little guy' caught up in incomprehensible, shifting situations.
And to bring things (sorta) back full circle...
There's a novel adaptation of the first avp movie, which was based on a comic series and bares very little resemblance to that comic series... Lol
The Cerasini novelisation? This book has my all time favourite gaff. EVER! It's on page 24. See if you can find it...
