The screenplay for Alien 3 by William Gibson will become a comic
The production of Alien 3 was quite troubled, especially when the movie was in the process of writing. Ten were, in fact, the authors called upon to write the screenplay, before arriving at the final one of David Giler and Walter Hill, transposed into a film in 1992 by David Fincher. But first of all it was an excellent name of the science fiction world: we are talking about William Gibson, considered one of the founding fathers of the cyberpunk movement.
The screenplay by Gibson for Alien 3, however, was soon set aside, but, fortunately, what Hollywood rejects, the world of comic books welcomes. And so it will happen again this time.
In fact, according to ComicBookResource.com, Dark Horse Comics is in possession of the screenplay, and he's doing a transposition of a comic drawn by Johnnie Christmas, and colored by Tamra Bonvillain.
In the script of Gibson the protagonists of the story would be Bishop and Hicks, while the character of Siguorney Weaver would be relegated to a marginal role. The small Newt, however, instead of dying in the opening of the movie would have been reported still alive on the Earth, and would go to live with grandparents.
In the synopsis of Gibson events recall from the finale of Aliens: the forces of the Union of Progressive People intercept the ship that carries the bodies hibernated for Ripley, Hicks, Newt and Bishop. But, unbeknownst to them, they also have captured another passenger, the deadly xenomorph, the discovery will set off a race among governments to use it as a weapon of war. The screenplay by Gibson outlines and then a creepy and intense thriller to the theme of the Cold War.
The script of the unused Gibson has produced a true fan-base that today, after many years, will finally see the story transposed to comics.
The Dark Horse is reportedly working on a miniseries divided into five parts. Below you can see a preview of the first five pages of the comic.
The first issue of the comics adaptation of Alien by William Gibson will be published in the United States on the 7th of November.
