Dark Horse Announces Comic Book Series Adaptation of Dan O’Bannon’s Original Alien Screenplay

Last year, Dark Horse Comics adapted William Gibson's unproduced Alien 3 screenplay as a five-issue comic book series, and now they're teaming up with 20th Century Fox to give the same treatment to Dan O’Bannon's original Alien screenplay, which, as diehard Alien fans know, is different from the version that came to life on the big screen in 1979.

Written by Cristiano Seixas and based on O’Bannon's original screenplay for Alien (which also included story ideas that O’Bannon worked on with Ronald Shusett), Alien: The Original Screenplay will be a five-issue series featuring artist Guilherme Balbi and colorist Candice Han.

Original Alien Script Is Becoming a Comic Book Miniseries
Dan O'Bannon's original Alien screenplay is getting the comic book treatment from Dark Horse Comics. Alien: The Original Screenplay will be made up of five issues by Cristiano Seixas and Guilherme Balbi. In 2018, Dark Horse found success when they released William Gibson's Alien 3, which adapted the original screenplay from David Fincher. Back in 2013, Dark Horse did an eight-issue run for George Lucas' original screenplay for Star Wars, which was also a huge hit.

The original screenplay for Alien includes a lot of differences from what ended up on the big screen. Alien: The Original Screenplay will feature new characters and alternate ship designs while trying to tell Dan O'Bannon's original story. The story was written by O'Bannon and Ronald Shusett, but it was heavily rewritten by producer Walter Hill, who went uncredited and made drastic changes to the source material, including making Ripley a woman.
