The Alien – Out of the Shadows audiobook will be coming out Alien Day. Yesterday Fox announced all sorts of new goodies in their Alien Day press release including an audiobook of Titan’s Alien – Out of the Shadows. The original novel by Tim Lebbon was released in 2014 (you can read our review of it here) and the new audiobook version of Alien – Out of the Shadows is due for release on April 26th.
Thanks to the good people over at Movie Buzzers we have our first sneak peek (sneek listen?) at what’s in store for us!
“Alien: Out of the Shadows is set in the 57 years between the original classic sci-fi films, 1979’s Alien and 1986’s Aliens and features the vocal talent of Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner and Batman Begins), Matthew Lewis (Harry Potter film series), Corey Johnson (The Bourne Ultimatum, Kingsman),Kathryn Drysdale, Laurel Lefkow, and Andrea Deck. It is directed by Dirk Maggs (radio series of Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy) and based on the original novel by award-winning author Tim Lebbon.”
You should recognize the name Andrea Deck as the voice of Amanda Ripley from Alien: Isolation. She is returning to provide the voice of Kasyanov for this audiobook. Science-fiction fans will also recognize the name Rutger Hauer as Roy Batty from Sir Ridley Scott’s other well-known sci-fi classic, Blade Runner. Ripley is played by Laurel Lefkow and Hoop is voiced by Corey Johnson.
Rather than a traditional audiobook like the recently released Alien film novelizations, the Maggs’ directed Out of the Shadows is taking a multi-cast approach, giving it an almost audio-play quality to it. The book will run approximately 4 hours and 20 minutes and is available by download only.
The Alien – Out of the Shadows audiobook is available to pre-order over at Amazon now.
