Screen Daily just shared an exclusive scoop that there’s a new Alien documentary on the way to celebrate the upcoming 40th anniversary of Alien next year. The new documentary, Memory – The Origins Of Alien, is apparently being shopped around at Toronto International Film Festival for worldwide distributors.
“Memory is, full-on, a mythological deep dive into one of the films that influenced me to become a filmmaker, and a long-overdue tribute to its creator and writer Dan O’Bannon,” said Philippe. “After the success of 78/52, we have pushed the envelope structurally, sonically, and visually, to deliver our most daring and original film-on-film to date; and I am thrilled to partner with Indie Sales to let it burst out onto the screen in 2019.”
According to the article, Memory – The Origins Of Alien will “reveal previously unseen materials from the archives of writer Dan O’Bannon and designer H.R. Giger, including story notes, drawings, designs, behind-the-scenes footage, and O’Bannon’s original 29-page Memory script from 1971.”
The documentary is the work of director Alexandre O. Philippe and producer Exhibit A Pictures who previously worked together on the Psycho documentary 78/52: Hitchcock’s Shower Scene.
