Primarily I want Alien Engineers, NB's Aliens II & especially VW's Alien III above all else.

Very cool! I'm a big fan of seeing these alternate/original takes on stories, so this is great news that they're doing more along those lines.

As has already been said, I hope we get to see stuff inspired by some of that original concept art. Alien really did have some amazing 70's sci-fi artwork made during its production.

What's up with that cover? "Blair Witch Alien"-esque

So we'll probably only get the Covenant sequel in comic form now. ;)

I'd like to see them collaborate with Gibson and create a sequel to his Alien 3 from scratch. That ending is just begging for a follow up.

This is pretty cool, this gives me hope that they'll tackle more alternate scripts and things like that.

Indeed.



I really do want Ward's vision brought to light in some way. Although in truth I feel it'd have to be a comic book or something animated because of how fantastical his visuals are. I couldn't trust a simple movie to bring all that craziness to life without sacrifice the things that make it unique.

But on the topic for this -- is there a bullet point layout that can tell me what's to be expected in Bannon's original draft? Was this before they had a concept for our favorite creature?

I absolutely cannot wait for this.

In spite of its problems, i kinda love the Gibson Alien 3 adaptation we got and this is looking (albeit only 2 pages and a cover) great.

Now lets hope we get some more.

the three that i really would love are

Alien: Enginneers

Paradise

Blomkamp’s Alien project.  I doubt this one will ever be made to be fair.

Yes.

It's the point, as far as I can tell, before Giler and Hill started re-writing.  So there's only six crew - Standard, Broussard, Roby, Hunter, Faust and Melkonis.  No Ash.

Here's O'Bannon own synopsis.
