Thanks Hicks



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.

That does need to happen. Hell they could adapt Ward's script into a sidequel to it

The original comics series can almost work as that sequel.  There is only a couple of details that do not really mesh.

Not that I'm concerned about the posted image showing a page of the book and the talk about the military disintegrator "firing and shooting explosives by military presense" doesn't seem to reflect whats going on in the panel. It just looks like the interiors of the derelict ship that is semi-redesigned and with a hole(s) to represent something like what is in the script.
I'm interested more so in what we might get from the artist rather than a line by line adaptation of the script as that can be quite hard to do when you're developing a unique vision.

I thought the William Gibson script adaptation was not great, and with the other alternate scripts for the film being rather bad I don't feel the requirement for a further extension of that story, especially with the original Aliens series already existing. I'd much rather see Neill Blomkamp's Aliens II and the particularly good Vincent Ward's Alien III.

Ward's Alien III is like 70% Ripley getting escorted through tunnels by a whiny monk and a nagging robot.

Fair enough, I suppose I mean conceptually interesting rather than good, much like all the noteworthy alternate scripts.

The actual idea of the wooden planet would be cool to see with the right artist. Shame we see so little of it on the page, though. And nobody could make the head burster look good, heh. They could also adapt scripts that never leaked out, like Ferguson's version with the Snow White ending.

Yeah, I sometimes wonder why people rate Ward's script so highly. The setting is cool and could be visually stunning, but once you stop to think about it it doesn't make a lick of sense. And beyond that and a couple of neat set pieces (the toilet, the wheat field) I thought the script was honestly pretty poor.

Like a lot of the rejected third film scripts, there was way too much unexplained WTF in it (the king, the headburster).

They could also adapt scripts that never leaked out, like Ferguson's version with the Snow White ending.

Having finally read the various Alien 3 shooting drafts fairly recently, I'm curious what he might've done. I don't really know anything about his unused contributions.

There's also the Twohy draft that supposedly had Ripley in it. Not sure how different that might've been.

It looks amazing: the cover is bewitching and I like the bright and colorful style of the comic strip itself!

Maybe next - Alien: Engineers, Paradise or even Alien: Earthbound.

Was Fasano's solo written second draft released/leaked? because that could have improved some things

Does anyone even really know how many script drafts were written for the third film? :laugh:
