Back in 2018, Dark Horse Comics turned William Gibson’s unproduced Alien 3 screenplay into a comic book mini-series. Now, Dan O’Bannon’s original Alien script is getting the same treatment!
Titled Alien: The Original Screenplay, the 5-issue mini-series was adapted by Cristiano Seixas and Guilherme Balbi and offers an alternate series of events to the 1979 film we all know and love. Things will look a little different: for one, Ripley was not even in O’Bannon’s screenplay.
Issue #1 of Alien: The Original Screenplay will release on April 22, 2020.
