Being a big fan of the Alien franchise, I’ve always wondered what William Gibson’s Alien 3 would of been like if it had hit the big screen.
Now, the guys over at Dark Horse Comics are turning the script into a comic book series with Johnnie Christmas adapting.
It feels like Christmas 😉
Here’s what Gibson had to say regarding the news:
When your first contracted screenplay (or screenplay of any kind, in my case) isn’t produced, but the film is eventually made with a different screenplay, retaining nothing of yours but a barcode tattoo on the back of a character’s neck, the last thing you ever expect is to see yours beautifully adapted and realized, decades later, in a different medium, by an artist of Johnnie Christmas’ caliber,”
“It’s a wonderful experience, and I have no doubt that Johnnie’s version, which adheres almost entirely to the script, delivers more of my material to the audience than any feature film would have been likely to do.”
Issue #1 will be available Nov 7th.
