As mentioned earlier this week by Bloody Disgusting Audible studios is bringing William Gibson‘s unproduced Alien 3 script to life as an original audio drama, which will feature Aliens star Michael Biehn reprising the role of Corporal Hicks. Lance Henriksen is also part of the project, voicing Bishop!
Here is a sneak preview clip, found below.
Father of cyberpunk, William Gibson’s original script for Alien III, written in 1987 as a sequel to Aliens, never made it to our screens, although it went on to achieve cult status among fans as the third installment that might have been after being leaked online.
This terrifying, cinematic multicast dramatization – directed by the multi award-winning Dirk Maggs – is the chance to experience William Gibson’s untold story and its terrifying, claustrophobic and dark encounters between humans and aliens, as a completely immersive audio experience.
The story begins with the Sulaco on its return journey from LV-426. On board the military ship are the cryogenically frozen skeleton crew of that film’s survivors: Ripley, Hicks, Newt and Bishop.
We travel aboard and hear an alarm blare. Our heroes are no longer alone.
