That's pretty awesome that Fincher actually helped them out, though.
Yeah, it was nifty reading about that they even talked to JC briefly but it seems they mostly went with Ridley for consultation.
I mean they said that after they talked with Fincher they learned a crapload about Alien 3 and what could've been, and how much larger the complex actually is.
They said something to the effect that was the last time Fincher seemed to be open to talking about it, so they got as much as they could but seeing as how that level/chapter/act seems to be cut is a real spit in the face to Fincher. It almost seemed like he could've gotten more of his vision to the audiences through this game but alas much like Alien 3's production it seems that it just didn't pan out.
the planned Fury 161 level(which they consulted with Fincher about btw, It's right there in the mag)Wait seriously? And he didn't tell them to go f**k themselves? I mean I thought it was pretty well-known that Fincher hates talking about Alien3.
Out of all the directors involved in constructing the Alien universe, Fincher had the least creative control over adding anything new to it. It would be somewhat humorous to find out that while this is one of the few times he opened up to give some insight about what he thought that world should look like that it gets completely scrapped from the final product. I think it would be reason enough for him continue telling people to go f**ck themsevles in the future.
Yeah I feel pretty much the same way, as much as I don't like Alien 3 in any of its incarnations he got the short end of the stick to say the least, shafted by two industries on the same subject matter...TWICE. ouch Fincher.
EDIT: I might see about doing some scans and digging out the issue again. The original article is no longer around, and I feel some people need a refresher.
