If they had a bastard lovechild with Pyramid Head from Silent Hill.

I'd honestly rather have Vincent Ward's Alien 3 adaption. I just don't think original O'Bannon's script difers enough from what we ultimately got. It's good to see they keeping up with the concept though.

The basic story is the same - there's just more of it (eg. a ship and a pyramid).

It's certainly not completely different like Alien 3 and the Gibson script.

I really hope they use some of the early creature designs in this, because otherwise it does seem a little unnecessary to do what is basically just a slightly earlier draft of the exact same story - and I say that despite really looking forward to this one.

Agreed HuDa.

I'm really looking forward to the pyramid stuff.

Here is an idea everyone.

Either Alien: Engineers or Blomkamp's Aliens 2

Adapted by Tristan Jones.

I'm not sure Tristan Jones is very excited at the prospect of Neill Blomkamp's Aliens II, I've no idea on his feelings towards Vincent Ward's Alien III but I know he'd be ecstatic to work on Engineers.

My argument against an Engineers adaptation was that it wasn't different enough from the movie we ultimately got to make it seem worth it - but I guess that went out the window with the announcement of this one :laugh:

So yeah, f*ck it, why not. I quite like that script.

IIRC he said in interview with muthur9000 something like " Hicks and Newt died. Get over with it, people "  :D

I'd like for them to mainly follow Engineers, with a few of the clean ups from  01 Genesis. As long as they keep the space station over the Amsterdam office. :laugh:

Then again, I wanted the Gibson Alien III comic to mix up elements of the two drafts, but they just straight adapted the second.  :-\

Yeah, so did I, hope that oversight isn't repeated in the future.
