William Gibson Points To An Online Version Of His Unused Alien 3 Script – UPDATED With Better Link

xenomorphMany if you may have already read William Gibson‘s Alien 3 screenplay somewhere throughout the years, but if you never did, here’s another chance.

While I was off playing swans, Gibson posted a link on Twitter, verifying that – at least if the script is complete – this is a draft he provided.

[UPDATE: That version is abbreviated. The full version lives elsewhere.]

Gibson went on to note that he had never written a screenplay before and had only the scripts for Alien and Aliens to use as a model for the format. He also notes that his brief was to most definitely not include Ripley. Obviously, that changed somewhere in the piling up of what he calls:

a stack of scripts *a foot high*

The script on the top of that pile – presuming that Fox actually went with the most recent draft – was credited to Vincent Ward, David Giler, Walter Hill and Larry Ferguson… and, yeah, something something crud floats to the top something. I can’t even muster the enthusiasm for that mess to kick it properly.

Though I’m certainly more interested in the Ward-only approach, the infamous “monks on a wooden planet” story line.

There’s been some discussion of late about where Prometheus 2 is headed, but the situation, as I understand it, is nobody really knows. I think we’re likely in for another foot-high pile of screenplays.
