Alien III An Audible Original Drama featuring Michael Biehn as Corporal Hicks4,979 Views4 RepliesAdd A Reply
For the Aliens nostalgics and fans of Dwayne Hicks, here is the news of an audiobook drama after a script that never made it into a movie. I suppose it's better to listen to the audiobook while browsing the comic book adaptation by Dark Horse of the same script, released earlier this year.
Audible is bringing William Gibson’s lost Alien III script to life in audio for the first time, to mark the 40th Anniversary of the birth of the Alien Franchise.
Alongside a full cast Michael Biehn reprises his iconic roles as Corporal Hicks and Bishop from the 1986 film Aliens.
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 instalment that might have been after being leaked online.
This terrifying, cinematic multicast dramatisation - 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....

I like the idea of lying back, closing my eyes and hearing the narrative while creating the images in my mind.
This was a great script. Great to continue to see it get use after the excellent graphic novel adaptation.
Nothing the God of biomechanics wouldn't let you in heaven for
This is amazing and unexpected. There are so many items in development now enriching the Alien story...I can't wait to listen to this.
