First Look at William Gibson's Unmade ALIEN 3 Screenplay Adaptation

By Christopher Webster [11.16.18]

The original screenplay for William Gibson's unmade Alien 3 has been adapted into a comic by Dark Horse and you can take a look right here.

Gibson is the award-winning science fiction author of the cyberpunk cult classic Neuromancer and according to Dark Horse, "You'll see familiar characters and places--but not all is the same in this horrifying Cold War thriller!" (whatever that means, I'm intrigued).

After the deadly events of the film Aliens, the spaceship Sulaco carrying the sleeping bodies of Ripley, Hicks, Newt, and Bishop is intercepted by the Union of Progressive Peoples.

What the UPP forces don't expect is another deadly passenger that is about to unleash chaos between two governmental titans intent on developing the ultimate Cold War weapon of mass destruction.

About the comic:
* Based on the original screenplay by Neuromancer's William Gibson.

* Adaptation and art by Johnnie Christmas--co-creator of Margaret Atwood's Angel Catbird and creator of Image Comics' Firebug.

* Featuring some of the most famous characters in the Alien film canon: Hicks, Bishop, Newt, and Ripley.
