In this minisode, Jaime discusses and summarizes David Twoy's Alien 3 script, what was derived from it, and ultimately utilized in the final version of the film. There is a scene by scene comparison of one particular moment in Twohy's script, and the audio from Fincher's version. Enjoy.
In this minisode—the first in a series of three—Ryan tackles the horrifying, fascinating script written by legendary sci-fi figure William Gibson all the way back in 1987. Gibson's script, which he titled Alien III, explodes with innovative ideas, memorable characters, and high-budget setpieces.
Although it was never filmed (and indeed was followed by nearly a dozen subsequent script rewrites), Gibson's ghostly story has influenced subsequent Alien Saga films in some very real and noticeable ways—perhaps none more so than Alien: Covenant.
Before we got Alien 3, we nearly had Alien III.
This is its story.
At long last, Jaime and Patrick sit down and discuss an overview of the development hell that was the birthing and gestation process for Alien 3. This epsiode is the jumping off point for three separate mini-episodes that will release in the coming weeks. Thank you for your patience as we have been on hiatus for a short while. We are back, with so much in store. As always, thank you for listening and supporting us.
The entire hosting staff of Perfect Organism sits down to discuss impressions of ALIEN 3. This episode is the jumping off point for mini-series deep dive into many aspects of the now famous, storied, and troubled Alien 3. In the coming weeks and months, Perfect Organism will dissect everything from the incredible score by Elliot Goldenthal, to the creature design and effects, the reception the film received, and how the film was the first of many fissures into a very divided and polarized fan base. Join JM, Ryan, Patrick, Mykal, and Dave for a riveting hour of discussion.
Perfect Organism Podcast has been steadily at work on a feature-length audio drama, chronicling the lives of a pair of siblings who struggle to survive the alien invasion at the Hadley's Hope Colony on LV426, as seen in James Cameron's seminole film, ALIENS. Proximity is currently in production, with a target release date of October, 2017. Stay tuned! Proximity is written and directed by JM Prater, produced by Perfect Organism Podcast, starring Patrick Greene, Micah Greene, Bradford Eckhart, and Kevin Duffield.
Patrick and JM discuss their own personal heroes in the world of science fiction. From Princess Leia, to Mary Poppins, to Rick Deckard, and yes, even Superman, heroes across decades are discussed at length. This episode was a joy to create. We really hope all of you enjoy it.
Dave, Mykal, and Patrick hold down the fort this week with a two-part episode about beginnings. The first half is a breakdown and discussion of the fascinating “Advent” short included on the home release of Alien: Covenant; the second half is a heartfelt exploration of how love for the franchise is passed from generation to generation. The episode ends with a number of call-ins, emails, and messages we received from you. We were honored to feature your original stories on the show, and can’t wait to hear more in the future!
This is Perfect Organism's third round table episode. In this episode, JM, Ryan, Patrick, Mykal and Dave discuss stepping out on our own, with a new discussion group, and an exciting and inclusive future where fans of ALL films can discuss their love, without fear. We believe the future is Alien, and it's an exciting one.
