I think they all have interesting behind the scenes stories, so why not.

A deep dive into all the directors that could've been would be interesting.

I'm won't lie, I'd buy the shit out of a book on the fourth film if they did it.

Always said Resurrection's been disappointingly light on BTS stuff. Even Lauzirika's doc, excellent as it was, felt a bit wishy-washy compared to the other three.

Maybe the shoot was just that smooth there's nothing interesting to tell :laugh:

Don't they look lovely together.
D'you know what'd look lovelier?
Alien 3 sat alongside.
A-f**king-men.

Do we dare ask for that 4th book then too to complete the set.

I just don't think we'll ever see a complete set unfortunately.

The whole reason the Anthology Documentaries got started in the first place's because of Charles de Lauzirika's interest in doing a deep dive into Alien³ first of all, with him being happy enough to cover Aliens and Alien also to do it, but he's said in the past the reason the AR documentary's the way it is came out of a place of an absence of interest in comparison to the rest.

I believe they also just ran out of time too.

I'd take a Rinzler book for Resurrection, if purely for him digging up the Newt pitch.

Unwrapped my copy last night and leafed through it. Great book, and a worthy companion to the first volume.

Only need to find the time to read it (along with ALIEN and the STAR WARS trilogy ‘making of’ books).

Rinzler's books are definitely a commitment, to get the full blow-by-blow feel of making the film. Not the kind of thing you'd read dribs and drabs of here and there. Hope you guys find the time!  :)

Just told the missus, the kids and my boss that I'm taking a month off and they won't see me at all for that time. Taking 2 books with me. Guess which ones?

I don't think Fincher would even want to get close to Alien 3. He hates this film and everything connected with it. And without him, the book will be incomplete.
