 William Gibson's Alien 3 Comic Adaptation Discussion - AvP Galaxy Podcast #88

While we’ve previously discussed Gibson’s first draft, we’ve never done an episode on Gibson’s second (which this series is based on) so there’s a lot of talk about the story in general as well as how faithful the comic is to it. We also talk about the different variants of the Alien, how faithful we feel any future adaptations should be to the original scripts or if they should be “fixed” and plenty more!

    Being that it's NZ, are you talking about the children of Shelob and the Great Eagles?

    Moa were the Godzilla of kiwis (could be a metre and half taller than the Australian Prehistoric Murder Bird).  Haast's Eagle ate moa.

    Giantism is a helluva drug. Closest thing we'll ever get to a dinosaur killing humans.

    I also love Cassowaries, those guys can be chill or incredibly aggro.

    I just wanna see the toilet abduction.

    Watch Deep Rising.

    That wasn't good enough.

    Ward's Alien 3 will do for bathrooms what jaws did for the sea.

    The equivalent to opening a toilet lid just to see a multitude of dangerous spiders come scurrying out from underneath it.

    Or a snake finding itself cozy inside of it without you realizing. Ward must've done the writers version of method acting by taking a trip to Australia and experience day-to-day terror before writing his script.

    Ward is from New Zealand, maybe they have similar deadly wildlife.

    Not much anymore.  Moa were wiped out long ago, as were the eagles that preyed upon them.

    Great podcast.

    I enjoyed this adaptation pretty much. It was obvious that Gibson's draft requires some polish but overall i think it had big potential to be a great movie. And it was good to see Hicks and Bishop again.

    I hope it had financial success so DH will be interested to do more. I'd love to see Ward script's adaptation.

    The David Twohy one is that I interestet in most. I'm very curious in witch direction he was going. This was his pre-riddick time. But when I watch the Riddick movies, every time I realise how good his characters are shaped. I think he could totally write a good alien movie.
  7. Hudson
    Yeah, I've never really thought any of the undeveloped scripts were as good as the movie we got, even with the flaws it had.

    To be honest, the only one I've read is the David Twohy one.

    Alien 3 is better than that script, and the eventual movie that came of it: The Chronicles of Riddick. Btw, how did Fox not sue him for plagiarism? They were the ones who paid him to write it, they were the ones who owned it.
  8. El Pistolero
    This is cool, I was so looking forward what you guys thoughts are on that series. I have to say, it was nice to read a story where Newt and Hicks have survived but in result I think that wouldn't have been a better movie then Alien3. A lot of that stuff didn't worked out for me.
    But this is also just a first draft sript by one guy. In hollywood there are usually up to 20 people involved with rewrites and polishing of dialogues. Maye the finished film would have been much different from this script. But I'm complete ok with that movie we got. It is a very terrifying film that makes you feel uncomfortable and it did a finish line for that trilogy.
