We have just uploaded the 130th episode of the Alien vs. Predator Galaxy Podcast (right-click and save as to download)! For our latest episode Corporal Hicks and Xenomorphine are talking to none-other-than Peter Briggs, the screenwriter behind the very first Alien vs. Predator movie script!
Peter Briggs poses for an interview with Starlog.
We talk about how Peter career direction took him to being the first screenwriter on Alien vs. Predator, the reasons behind some creative decisions, the challenges of writing crossover events like AvP (or Freddy vs. Jason), how Peter was involved in Anderson’s film in a low-key way, Jim and John Thomas’ own pitch for Alien vs. Predator and plenty more!
Unfortunately we did experience a number of technical issues during this episode so please forgive us some lower quality audio and no video, but we hope you enjoy it regardless!

Quote from: oduodu on Jul 31, 2021, 08:33:37 AMis the powell script for alien 2 a well known thing? first time i have heard this . and with goo.
QuoteIn fact, Ivor himself had written a 30/40 page treatment for an Alien prequel that would have explored more of the Space Jockey and the distinctly Gigeresque elements of the Alien universe. Speaking alongside Alien & Alien 3 editor Terry Rawlings at a special screening of Alien at the Genesis Cinema in August of 2014, Powell revealed a little about his treatment for an Alien prequel:"I remember writing a thirty, forty page sort of thing, based on the prequel, because that's the sort of thing that I found absolutely fascinating about was all Giger's. There were a lot of things that you never saw in Alien.There was the entrance to the derelict ship, and there were these sort of hieroglyphics and things like that. He [Giger] did at a certain sort of Egyptian / sort of galactic sort of alien background, and none of these things got seen, but all that fascinated me.And I think that the little sort of bit of speech that the robot Ash gives about what this creature's about that I just found really fascinating. And what was the Space Jockey? Where did he come from and all that? I know some of it got vaguely explained in Prometheus but for me it didn't touch it at all."
Quoteso briggs is also on the that the engineers and jockey are 2 different things bandwagon . as am i . i hope one day Cdl directs a briggs written scripts about just such a story.
